NEED TO PLAY

Postby torilen » Wednesday April 15th, 2015 9:50pm

So, anyone think my 5 year old son would be able to GM for a while?
I really need to play some - HQ, D&D...something...but I really don't
want to GM.

Hive him time to get there pop. :)
When I go and visit my brother we sit down and enjoy a game together with his teen age son as the Dungeon Master. Kid has some rough edges but I can see him surpassing me in skills if he keeps at it and listens to my brother and I when we give him our post game analysis of his dungeon and the issues we observed. We never argue the DM during game, we model proper player etiquette when we are playing. He actually listens to our notes and he has been improving. :D
So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Hehe, never too early to start they say :p But he might be more interested in just playing with the figures than studying those rules and words and stuff.

If he has played enough games, there is no reason why he couldn't DM. It will be very slow, he'll miss many things, put doors in the wrong places, and not know how to deal with any special rules, but it is possible.
