Happy 10th anniversary to the Kids-RPG List!

Posted by WJWalton on Wed 22 of July, 2009 09:29 PDT
This month marks the 10th anniversary of the Kids-RPG mailing list, created by RPG author Sam Chupp to help encourage parents, guardians, teachers, and others to play RPGs with kids.

For ten years now, the list has accumulated fantastic advice and wisdom for anyone who would like to get their kids involved in the hobby. GeekDad has an interview with Sam about the history of the list and his inspiration for creating it. (There's even a mention of the Escapist in there!).

Congratulations, Sam, and here's to ten more years!
