Special Interest Event Tracks

Kids Games


Many of us got started in adventure gaming before we were old enough to drive, and we want Council of Five Nations to welcome families and kids. But we also know that the thematic content or complexity of some games makes them unsuitable for young players. To allow attendees and parents to make an informed decision on participation in an event, all events have been assigned one of the following Maturity Ratings:
•    Child rating is for children age 6 - 9 with adult supervision
•    E10+ rating is for players 10 and up in age (This is the default rating)
•    Teen rating is for players 14 and up in age
•    Mature rating is for players 18 and up in age.

We have also identified some games as particularly geared to Kids.  You will see the “Kids” flag in the event description header, and outlined in the special event track below. 


Saturday Morning  9:00 AM - 1:00 PM  (Slot D)


Dungeons & Dragons for Juniors * Dungeons & Dragons
D-RPG-4 * $ 2
Game Master: Dan & Nick Masucci * 5 Players * Kids * Child
"Adventurers enter a frontier town and find posters plastered all over the streets calling for help. A band of pesky kobolds have taken up residence in the forest around Rivington and the mayor wants them out. It sounds like an easy job and it pays 200 gold eagles, but there are those in town that wonder what brought the kobolds down from their rocky hills, and what other dangers may await Rivington. Aimed squarely at kids ages 6+! This rules, light adventure is all about creativity and imagination while introducing kids to the greatest role playing game ever. No supervision required, but parents and guardians are welcome to stick around!" Beginners encouraged.
