My wife works with K-6 at the Boys and Girls Club of America, and they have guests come in for different clubs. I wanted to do a TTRPG club, leveraging the unique collaborative and experiential environment to connect kids to history. The Oregon Trail seems like a good campaign to run, rife with adventure, encounters, exploration, resource management, etc.
A few questions for anyone with ideas or experience:
- In working with TTRPGs and young kids, what are some keys to success, and what are good cautionary tales?
- Does anyone happen to have Oregon Trail settings content? Between CORE, Ghost Mountain, Blood and Snow, and Grizzly Encounters “Journey” and “Civilizations” (and “Forces”, when it hits the shelves!), I think I have sufficient structure to develop it, but if someone already had done some work and was interested in collaboration, I would love to leverage it.
