This is a new part of the blog that will gradually get larger, or likely become its own site. Games are something we do a lot of here on the homestead, whenever the weather is no good for playing outside. These games are a valuable tool for both entertaining and teaching the kids. Plus, the games are fun for the adults too.
I had started creating game for my own kids, and thought they might be worth sharing. So, here is the beginnings of Houligan Games:
Aspiring Adventurers explore the wild jungle as they learn a simplified version of OpenD6. Build your character while reading the story and learning how to use attributes to perform actions. Build rafts, dodge carnivorous plants, chase monkeys, climb trees all while searching for the adults kidnapped by Inferno the Angry Dragon.
FirstFable– This is not a game that I created, but I did create the Adventure listed below. This is a game that I downloaded, for free here. You will need to download these rules to play the Adventure listed below. The creator of the game encourages others to create and share supplements for this game and share them for free, so I did.
My Adventure: Little People
Take your characters on an Adventure in the forest, through the eyes of a bug. A bug? Yes, a silly Leprechaun has shrunk the characters to bug size, and now they must find Clues to solve a riddle for the Leprechaun in order to get back to normal size. Along the way, they face Challenges, complete Tasks, and find Special Things.
