Kids D&D

I don't know how widely this has been talked about, but I just found Jimm Johnson's version of an attribute-less, extremely simple D&D game for kids. It's very much in the tradition of the microlite games. I'm talking the kind of game a four year old could play and enjoy, while remaining a bit faithful to the game we all love.

The PDFs (and picture of his sweet Dungeon Forge setup) can be found on his blog - The Contemptible Cube of Quazar - here at this link. Very nice and thank you, Jimm! I can't wait to give this a whirl.

Cool, thanks for the link. Looks like something right up my alley for a game with my son!

i have seen this. But we play LL with ours at 7 and up.

I started my then 5-6 yr old on 3rd edition. he did fine with some help.Actually he did epic and was one of the best players in the game. No restrictions to his approach.

Excellent, thanks for the link. My son is really getting into the idea of playing D&D, even though there has been very little in the way of rules up to this point (he's 5).
