Kid's Room Activities

Salon 2

Friday 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Sunday 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

The Kidís Room is a place where youthful exuberance can find an outlet within the confines of the convention. We strive to create a safe and engaging space where children of all ages can come together and play.

There are plenty of games available for folks to choose from (but the games must stay in the Kids Room; this is a private collection that is on loan, not owned by the convention). You are always welcome to bring your own game(s) to the room, and there will be scheduled games and other activities planned throughout the weekend. Anyone of any age is welcome in the room, but be prepared to play games with our youngest gamers!

The Kidís Room is based in the main convention area, to allow easy access to all the excitement of the convention.

Parents Ė your pre-teen children are welcome in the Kids Room, but we want to remind you that the Kids Room is not a babysitting service, and we will not take responsible for overseeing your child while you are gaming elsewhere. Children under the age of {4 /5 /6?) must be accompanied at all time by an adult. Please be sure that your child knows where you are, and how to reach you, in case there are any problems. It is expected that you will provide adequate food and rest for your child throughout the convention, since a lack of either can make them cranky and unmanageable and we want everyone to have a pleasant time at the convention.

Children in the Kids Room are still expected to follow the rules of the convention and are subject to the same penalties and restrictions as any adult.

GMs Wanted!

We're looking for some GMs to run games for our younger set! Submit your game through the web site. Be sure to check the box for 'Kidís Room Event', so that we can get your game properly scheduled. Games are not registered through the normal Games Registration process, they are "Drop In" - simply show up to play!

Other kid-friendly games can be found outside of the Kidís Room hours in the regular gaming areas.

If you have ideas for other activities, send a note to our Kids Room coordinator

These aren't mini's, they're toy soldiers, so come and play with them! The heroic Green Army will be fighting against the evil Tan Empire.

The battlefield will feature awesome toy terrain (rocks, sandbag gun emplacements, barbed wire, trees, you name it). I'll keep each battle under 2 hours in length so that I can run at least two battles during my time block. Prizes will be awarded to the winning army. Seize the day!

Drop In Beyond the Door to Monster Mountain

Saturday 10 AM in Salon 2 for 2 hours

System: Dungeons & Dragons (Original)

Players: 6

Power Level: 1st

Rules Knowledge: Beginners Welcome
Game Content: Family

The Town is built against the base of a forbidding mountain. In the back of the town is an old metal door fixed to the mountainside. Rumors say that beyond the door the corridors are never the same...

This edition of Dungeons & Dragons was organized by Dr. J. Eric Holmes and released in 1977 as a way to summarize and streamline the original rules to prepare new players for the upcoming Advanced Dungeons & Dragons edition. In and of itself, it represents probably the most concise and complete version of the game with enough depth of play for many hours or even years of play. This scenario was written by a prolific member of the OSR community, 'Zenopus,' and leverages Lego Heroica parts for the map.
