5 Fun Dungeons & Dragons gifts for kids
Dungeons & Dragons is one of the greatest powerhouses of the TTRPG world, but it isn't always child friendly. You can make it appropriate for younger audiences by homebrewing the campaign and source books that are created by Wizards of the Coast, or by making a world of your own. Another way to do it is to buy one of these products that were specifically made with children in mind.
Dungeon Mayhem is a short card game suitable of anyone aged eight and over. This base pack comes with four different decks, each of which has it's own class. The game is a simple to learn, draw-a-card then play-a-card format where the objective is to reduce the opposing player(s) to 0 hit points before they do that to you. Rounds of the game should only take about 5-10 minutes and would be a great way to pass the time post Christmas Lunch!
Monster Madness can be bought as a stand alone product, as it comes with a copy of the Dungeon Mayhem Rulebook, but it can also be bought as an expansion for the base game that is detailed above. The box that Monster Madness comes in also acts as a storage box for all six decks in this set and the four decks that come with the base game. The main difference between the base game and Monster Madness is that, unlike the four base decks, each of the Monster Madness decks are for, well, monsters. The six zany monster characters can be seen in the picture below. So, whether you want to be a mind flayer with a PhD or a dapper dragon, this wonderful card game pack has you covered! £19.03
