First off, thanks to everyone who contributed to August’s Blog Carnival Teaching the Game. This is my first time hosting the carnival; thanks for making it a success. This post is a little late, but I just got married last week and am only now getting the chance to get back to a regular schedule. We had some great posts this month:
- The Action Point offers some ideas on how teaching a game can actually improve your GMing.
- Pen and the Sword give some advice on how to teach the game to beginners.
- Moebius Adventures talks about introducing kids to roleplaying.
- Reality Refracted offers a step-by-step guide to introducing new players to the hobby without scaring them off.
- Exchange of Realities has some advice on coaxing players to try a new system and on how to slowly ease players into it.
- Fame and Fortune gives some tips on how to make learning a news system easier.
- Greyhawk Grognard discusses the usefulness of quick-start or introductory game rules.
- The Nine and Thirty Kingdoms offers a tutorial on how to get new players immersed in a game quickly.
Again, thanks to everyone who participated. I’ll be hosting the January 2011 blog carnival on Worldbuilding, so mark your calendars 😉 .
