About

This funding is to help us purchase all the equipment that makes this show possible and help us continue some of the great community activities we do at Game Night Games. RPGs with Kids will be a weekly show that showcases the ways kids think, the things adults can do to help them teach the games, and how to run games for younger people. We'll have breakouts of the kids, telling us what they are thinking as they are playing, and what they want their characters to do while they play. We'll have the Gamemaster explain what their motives are and what strategies they use to setup and run the game.

Inevitably, kids get upset and it's so important to help them through emotional parts with empathy and treating them with respect and not being condescending or authoritative. It is our goal to teach kids that they are empowered to use the imagination, and encourage next-level thinking, problem solving and group socialization.

These important skills are missing in many of today's youth, and we'll help you see how this can be done, so you can try gaming as a social activity with your own children.

Game Night Games is a game shop operated by Dave Villegas and Tim and Kate Rayburn, known on the d20Radio podcast network as GM Dave, DM Tim and DM Kate. GM Dave is most known for being the host of the Order 66 Podcast (Star Wars Role Playing) and being a twitch streamer under the name of BigYoda. DMs Tim and Kate are known for their podcast, Radio Free Hommlet, which concentrated on D&D 4E.

Our current lineup of GMs include GM Chris from The Order 66 Podcast, widely acclaimed as one of the best GMs players have ever played with, and a graduate of The University of North Texas with a degree in psychology, and he will be lending his unique insight to help you run better games with adults and kids alike.

On the D&D side, we bring GM Brev from a number of shows on the d20Radio network, and all around entertaining guy. Known for his D&D dungeon master experience, he has been running games for his children for some time, and he will share some of the tips and tricks that will help you run better games.

We will be releasing a one hour show every week, following our group of players as they play through the creations that GMs Brev and Chris have come up with for our intrepid adventurers. The games will be Star Wars Role Playing by Fantasy Flight Games and D&D 5th edition from Wizards of the Coast.

We'd love for you to watch and give us feedback!

Risks and challenges

Risks include the always present risk of small business. If our sales don't support us, we will not exist. As for production of the show, we have a risk when working with children that the finished product will be affected by inconsistent behavior and real life availability. We are targeting the recording of several episodes in a single day to help build a buffer of episodes in case our players find themselves unavailable for a little bit. The owners of Game Night Games are both podcasters, having done so for many years, Dave streams on Twitch regularly, Tim is an audio engineer for his church as a volunteer, both are very technical. Dice and T Shirt production are also risks, of course, but we are using known suppliers, and the RPG books are ordered regularly through our suppliers, so this is not a large risk at all.
