Why would they like my intro game?
Hopefully, for the same reasons the rest of us love role-playing games – it’s a great time hanging out with friends, expanding your mind, and exercising your creativity.
Also, because as a game master, I’d tailor the game to the folks I’m playing with. When my gaming group decided to introduce our children to Dungeons & Dragons, we knew we’d need lots of health snacks and frequent breaks. We also knew we’d need to simplify things as much as we good, so the game moved quickly and we didn’t get bogged down in rules minutia. And it worked – the kids had fun, we had fun, and we had a pretty good run of it (at least until the pandemic hit, and shut everything down).
The same principle applies – know your group, then run the game that works best for them … in the way that best suits them.
