Pulp Alley - changes for kids?
« on: May 22, 2020, 09:29:11 AM »
Hi all,

My kids are getting old enough to play some simple games with. I have the solo deck and I'd like to have a play with them of PA. I've used simpler rules with them but I greatly prefer PA for these small skirmish games.

For those who have played with kids or younger people, have you made any changes to keep things simple? I like to make a little narrative for them and skew it in their favour, but not make it too easy. Or did you just run as normal?

I've bought the kids a few of their own minis so I though it would be a nice exercise for them to name their minis, decide what each is good at, maybe a little back story.

Thanks! Stay well

Great idea! Perhaps less dice?

So I've done rosters for them, just 1 leader and 5 allies. I thought that was enough to keep it a bit simpler for them.

I'll basically umpire a narrative game for them - way better than staring at a screen and they have their own minis they've named

Actually I know the song from the Pearl Jam cover, I was a bit obsessed with them as a teenager  :D

Better than the alternative!

I thinK PA is a fun kid friendly game.  Not sure how old your kids are but I was always amazed at how much complexity my kids absorbed when they were young in their electronic games without ever blinking.  With you as an umpire I would not be surprised they are able to absorb it as is.
