The Children's Roleplaying Zone


Our group of dedicated Children's Roleplaying Game Masters are back in their own expanded and dedicated area in Hall 2, near the Family and Children's Zones with five different games on the go, so youngsters can pick their fate, or come back for a second or even a third and forth helping.

The games are recommended for children aged Five to Twelve. No knowledge of rules is needed — just imagination and a willingness to learn. It is advisable to sign up early, as places fill up very quickly.

Steve Jackson Games are sponsoring the children's RPG for 2020 using their 35-years-in-the-making games system: "The Fantasy Trip."

Described as an "old school" style RPG but now brought up to date for the 21st century, The Fantasy Trip will be converted for a special children's version at this year's Expo.

You can find out more about The Fantasy Trip here.

What games will we run?

Write a children's RPG adventure for the Expo!

This year is also special in that we are inviting all children who are aspiring writers and game authors to tell us what the Fantasy Trip adventure should be!

This competition is open to children aged between 7 and 12 (the same age as the RPG sessions) on Sunday 31st May 2020 and will be your chance to tell us what the RPG session should be about.

Submissions MUST be received by Monday 13th April 2020. Full details on how to enter are here...

These games will also be run:

The Clarendon school of witchcraft and wizardry.

To celebrate 10 years of the children's RPG at Expo, this special adventure is a return to the first ever Kid's adventure written for UK Games Expo.
It's been 10 long years since the last graduating class destroyed this once famous School, but this year it mysteriously reappeared, are you brave enough to be one of the first students to walk back through its hallowed halls?

The Haunted House strikes back.

The Fair Is back in town, and this year its got a brand new attraction. but in this Haunted House the attractions seem a little too real, and sometimes the ride cars come out empty.

Can you survive the Unfair Fair and solve the mystery of the Haunted House without getting the life scared out of you?

Trouble in Teddy bear town.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, if you make the toys ten times the size, they must be ten times the fun, right?
Only these toys have other ideas, they don't play nice, and that teddy bear has ideas about ruling the world. Its time to put your toys away, no matter the cost!
