Two upcoming events: National Gaming Day and Teach Your Kids to Game Week

Posted by WJWalton on Thu 10 of Nov., 2011 15:09 PST

This Saturday, November 12th is National Gaming Day @ Your Library. Check with your local library and see if they are participating. If not, ask if they'll let you volunteer, or if they'd like you to organize something for them next year. For more information, visit (Thanks to Michael Tresca for the reminder!)

Right after that, Teach Your Kids to Game week starts on Monday November 14th. This is a new event organized by the folks at DriveThruRPG to encourage parents and other grownups to get kids involved in roleplaying games. They've invited me and Kevin Kulp to contribute essays for their weekly newsletter, and they'll be featuring great RPGs for kids. To find out more, see their newsletter (the current edition will be live soon), and their Facebook page.
