Looking for a way to get my three young children into the hobby and this could be it - rules are simple enough and are well written that they translate the information in a way children will understand yet experienced role players will find familiar too.

Lots of extra shiny bits in the bundle via the bonus sets really compliment the rule book

Can't wait to give this a go!

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the illustrations. There are several types of adventurers to choose from: Cleric, Dwarf, Elf, Fairy, Halfling, Knight, and Wizard. An illustration accompanies each character type which helps kids visualize them when deciding what to be. Unfortunately, only the Fairy is clearly feminine, and the Wizard is androgynous. I have two daughters and it is a hard sell to get them to try out the other character types. It would be wonderful if there were two illustrations side-by-side for each character type: male and female. Aside from this issue, the game works as advertised. It is wonderfully accessible to kids.

This is a very simple role-playing game based on the basic D&D/LotR archetypes. There are a couple levels of character advancement available, and a decent variety of monsters to fight. The rules are simple--my six-year-old and my eight-year-old both grasped it quickly enough to convince my four-year-old to join in. Their universal verdict was to ask if we could play it again.

The bonus paper-minis and play mats from Arion Games are part of what sold the game. My kids loved picking their character, cutting them out, and gluing/taping them together. They are of a slightly different (simpler) style than Arion's usual minis but work well enough alongside the usual product line.

Pros: Simple, kid-friendly rules. Enough of a framework to provide quite a lot of entertainment, especially with a little tweaking. The Arion-Game paper minis add a crafty, visual element that extends the appeal to kids even further.

Cons: The fairy princess was pretty powerful and a brilliant addition but my girls grew tired of her--I think the wand proved to be an unsatisfying weapon with only one dice roll while everyone else was getting to roll twice.

Bonus: The basic addition and counting involved (we used pennies to keep track of health and nickels for "play points") provided my kindergartner with a wonderful opportunity to review and develop the basic math skills they are working on in school.

I have a friend who had been a long time RPG player, but had mostly given it up for the time consuming rigors of parenthood. He figured some day he could get back into it and maybe introduce his son to it.

I saw "Kids, Castles, & Caves" and figured it would be a great present for him and his now seven year old. Then I saw the bonus set and figured I would get them that, too. I was delighted to find I could get both in a bundle and save money.

I'm planning on printing out a bunch of the stuff and giving it all to them in a box for Christmas, so they can get started cutting and pasting figures and playing right away.
