A Nearly Six Year Old Just Owned Me With Dungeon Building

This weekend I've been cleaning and organizing my gaming material. At the same time, I've had uncle duties. Shannon found some Dwarvenite and some minis and decided she was going to build dungeons. The minis (monsters) were to protect the treasure (gold) from folks trying to rob her dungeon. She wanted to include riddles, traps and secret doors. I kid you not.

If nothing else, this solidifies the idea that public play should include terrain and minis.

As a side note, at not quite 6, Shannon is now insisting that I teach her Dungeons & Dragons. She wants to be a bearded wizard. As far as I know, she hasn't seen any of the LotR or Hobbit moves ;)


  1. It's amazing what kids can come up with.

  2. My dog plays chess, so

    It's actually not that big a deal since I still beat her three out of five

  3. Terrain and minis are great. That tactile feeling is something I love.

  4. That's very nice work. Your S&W Lite game would be perfect for a precocious 6yo

  5. Heh. I'm actually printing out some of Fat Dragon's 3D dungeon tiles, right now.

  6. This is cool indeed.

    Just a sidenote if I may (from a fellow law enforcer from across the Atlantic :)) : I would really advise against posting anyone's real name (even first name) + recognizable picture simultaneously. Small breaches of privacy quickly add up when you start young.

    On a lighter note (pun pun), when do we get to see S&W : Light ?
