About the adventure

Tabletop games offer parents, teachers, and librarians a fantastic opportunity to connect with younger audiences through engaging collaborative storytelling. Adults seeking to lead engaging tabletop adventures are welcome to join Game Master Juni Ruiz as he highlights tips and resources you can use to facilitate game sessions for younger players. While Dungeons & Dragons is used as an example many of the concepts can be applied to other tabletop roleplaying games. Participants will engage with one another to create a simple adventure for the group to enjoy that illustrates the topics discussed.
