Family Matters

I escaped this particular fate myself, but saw and heard of many others who didn’t manage to escape the dreaded clutches of “the little sibling.” But I vaguely remember being the young kid seeing people play the game and wanting to join them, despite being only six. Amusingly, it was decades later and only years after I was regularly playing D&D myself that I thought back to that night, recalled the minis in the homemade cardboard dungeon, and realized this would have been my first “experience” with D&D. 

It tends to come up because the younger sibling is curious about the game, but is seen by the older sibling as a distraction. An impediment to the fun of everyone else. Too young to play (like I was) but annoyed at being told we couldn’t join in. Which leads to the parental mandate to include them in the activity, often to the chagrin of everyone.

Designs are available as T-shirts but some work as masks. I now only have a single income, making finances are tight and gaming books a luxury. Any purchases are greatly appreciated.
