    I loved it because it was so typical that they wouldn't teach the kid how to play, yet still toss him into a game headfirst against all of them. Hadn't seen them so mad after that game since a long time. And the kid was beaming afterward.

    Had a big game going on at Uni, one of the guys who no longer plays with us for reasons unknown(I assume job moved him or whatever) brought his kids.
    The kids love my conversions. Because a Thomas the Train toy is cheaper than a battlewagon. They ask to play with the models I am not using, sure, why not.

    One time I was in my local LGS/Comic Shop, and I saw a bunch of guys setting up a Catan board. There was a Warhammer Tourney going on in the back of the store. One of guys playing WH has a kid who isn't that interested. Sees the Catan board. Turns out they have room for another, so they let him join. Kid's like eight or nine.

    Now I myself have never played Catan, but I'm told that it's about economics, trade, and resources. This kid had somehow, very early in the game gotten a lot of wood, as well as sheep.

    He announced this to the entire store. He opened up with what can only be described as mad scientist laughter "Now that Shawna has given me wood, with my abundance of sheep soon my master plan shall be unstoppable!"

    Every single person in the store met each others eyes, silently communicating one thought "he's 8, he has NO IDEA WHAT HE JUST SAID, don't laugh.

    He kept going. Apparently his plan was to get all the wood and all the sheep, and then cockblock everybody. Some combination of 'sheep' 'wood' and 'master plan came from that table for the next three hours.

    Same kid, with the help of a huge neckbeard who I honestly think wanted to be Santa when he grew up, made an ork army like a year later and brought his unique brand of insane troll logic to that game. My personal favorite being the time when he decided his orks had somehow found out about the human concept of giving gifts, and had built a box big enough to contain their entire army with 'to humies, from da orkz' written on the side. when concentrated artillery fire destroyed his entire army in one turn, he yelled "Noooo! My scheme!" at the top of his lungs. Kids fucking awesome.

    Was a while back, with the previous ork codex. Was 15-16, hitting up the not-even-a-little-bit-local GW while mum bulk-shopped. Saw a much younger kid playing against a few older players, guess they would have been 19-20, but they could have just been the same as me at the time. While I'm there playing against my younger brother, the older kids beat him a few times. Some stuff seems kinda cheat-y from the tau guy, but I don't really think it's my place. I figure that they might want a fairer match, and ask if one of them wants to play me, figure my little brother can play against the other kid.
    >"Oh what you play?"
    >Cue laughter at my "weak" army. Phrase "Orks can't shoot." thrown about.
    >Tau (Shitty paintjob, poor effort) and IG (Gue'vessa army actually, was really well painted, and worked well with the old doctrines. A bunch of cool conversions) player on the other side, the kid they were playing with has orks (Poorly done, but better then the tau player who said loudly and repeatedly "Orks are so bad converters and painters can feel good.").

    I ran a min-maxed ork dakka list. 3 mobs of flash gits, big shootas everywhere, tankbustas, lootas and some buggies/big gunz. Kid has a poorly built combat army, with more toyz then boyz, etc. IG list is good, but not uber, and very fluffy. Tauguy spammed pathfinders and broadsides.
    Objective game (we decided on a pile of VERY IMPORTANT BARELS on the kid's insistance to use his objective marker he converted).

    My goal in the battle was to get the annoying tau player. When deployment came around, he saw shooting ork units and thought it'd be easiest there. I kept deploying in front of him, he kept picking in front of me, so it basically became two games, just on the same table.

    Managed to out-shoot tau player while IG player shot up the kid's orks charging across the table. I give him a few tactical tips, warboss to warboss and catught the tau-guy cheating a few times. Correct him, as if it's a mistake, he stops.

    Game essentially comes down to a combat between the kid's warboss, and a badass IG sergant (with that upgrade medal thing that makes him basically a heroic sr. officer). I feel a little embarrassed, was so focused on cleaning up the tau player with my "inferior" firepower that I forgot the objective. Kid fluffs his rolls, warboss dies. Kid seems a little upset, tau player looks ready to gloat, and the IG guy just smiles, and points out that the squig hasn't attacked. Technically the squig should have been removed with the warboss, but I figured I'd let the kid have it, and tell the IG guy afterwards.

    Squig bites the last wound of the sarge, and is the last surviving model anywhere near the Barrels of Utmost Importance. We rule that he carried the day, with his squig (dubbed pumba, the big squig) and the IG player told the kid he'd help him convert a squig with an IG arm in it's mouth sometime (Turns out they knew each other). Kid goes off happy when he gets collected, and am talking to the IG player as we play another game (Tau player is hunting thorugh my rulebook, determined to find how I "cheated" and outshot him with orks). Let him know he actually won it, and he just says "Yeah, I know. Kid was happy though."

    It "was" the orks with guns he needed to watch. Your pic related, every time they realise that I had more mobile firepower then they did. Five big shootas (4 in the mob, one on the nob) plus a couple bullet catchers. 3rd ed. codex in 4th, flash gits were great. Every time though, they focused on my small assault element of warboss and nobs, made to be stupidly 'ard, and not much else.

    Vs gunlines, they rocked all the jocks. I could kite anyone who had less firepower at 36" then me. Transports were tankbusta'd, loota'd and Zzap'd (yeah, I remember when they were good) and generally meant that they couldn't engage my army properly.

    Vs assault armies, I could move and stall, firing for max time, then when I couldn't stall no more, charge them. Even shootas were attacks2 remember, 3 on charge, and double init on successful PotW. Lost combats became mob ups, became shoot and charge.

    I don't have many /tg/ stories involving children because I don't wargame or play MtG, and children usually don't go for euros or 5-hour fuckcomplicated ameritrash boardgames.

    The only LGS chain in my country runs some board games, and when I'm there, I often visit to get my board game fix. I played some nice lighter game with two 14-year-olds (it may have been Citadels) and a fun little game of Pinguïn Party with the store's owner's two 10-year-old daughters. All the kid's I've interacted with in /tg/-related settings have been willing to learn and very fun to game with.

    Does that mean the owner of a sliver will take 1 damage for each sliver he has in play?

    (so the kid has 20ish turns and your friend can't play his slivers?)

    I don't play mtg, only watch on occassion.

    The player who had loads of slivers out would take damage and die at the start of his next turn, before getting a chance to attack.

    haha oh wow
    No, for every sliver his friend had, he takes one damage on the next go. If he didn't kill the sliver, he would have died due to his own cards.
    >> Coffee Dave 11/29/11(Tue)12:40 No.17055827

    I means that everyone will take 1 damage, per sliver under there control during the upkeep. So my friend would be taking 60 damage per upkeep, while the kid only take 1 damage.

    Oh, I thought this was first round. Didn't read the post closely enough. Friend already had 60 slivers.

    My son could not stand the noise and so many people for so long until he had a few years in him, but he's a very quiet and unobtrusive kid to begin with. It went a little better with my daughter, who was sleeping in her car-seat-rocking-crib-combo-thing from the very beginning.

    to them its "attention", "company" and "people are laughing and happy therefore I must be having fun too", and believe me it saves a lot of headache with the girlfriend when "night out with the boys" means she's coming with you or you're watching the kids for her.

    No swallowed dice, occasional crayon on some sheets, but that's our fault for forgetting to put everything away after every session. The boy's even started playing in our lighter games (he's 8).

    You may not have missed out on much. Certainly there are many awesome guys and girls out there that will all but adopt you from day one, accepting that you come with your parent.

    There's also that feeling when you realise mom's boyfriend is the idiot in >>17054765. And that's some of the lucky ones still.

    Even today those stepmothers that think dad should be raising her kids and you belong elsewhere exist. Some may not even HAVE kids to take your place. Sometime, its a bitch or bastard that drinks, but daddy or mommy can't help but keep them around no matter how much they threaten you, because they're just plain desperate.

    But the wierdest, most facepalm worthy of them all, was when my cousin married his step-mother after his dad's newest divorce. She was five years younger than he was. Pretty sure he was the one that got her pregnant too. Might have been why the divorce.

    Well he's kind of got a point. Tourneys are dickish in general anyway.
    Where were people like you when I was a kid? The closest thing I got to playing DnD before I turned 12 or so was when a friend of mine went to a con to pick up the books but his mom said no because it's a satanic game or something. He came back with Munchkin so it wasn't a total loss.

    All changed in middle school when a kid moved in with a collection of misc RPGs. Turns out he collected the books for fun but never played any of them. I remember all of the kids wanting to play and the school staff yelling at the "jocks for making fun of us" when they were honestly excited in playing and had even rolled up characters. The guy's still a good friend and we game regularly.

    And the closest I had to this was a sort of reversal to this. Having always been a fantasy collecter I decided to get into 40k after browsing /tg/. Some kids who had just turned 14 watched me and the previously mentioned friend have a proxy DE va Eldar battle. After that we did a 2v2 between us and two of them (Necrons and Tau). They didn't know all the rules so it was sort of a mess, but good fun. The highlight being a lone sore avenger who took on and won against a stealth suit team and almost beat his crisis suit in melee. After that I sold all the Tau I had previously collected to a friend of mine who plays 40k with his two kids. Still regret giving him the Tau instead of the Eldar.

    I take that back, I brought my Savage Worlds book to a summer camp I work at and brought a few of the younger councilors into neckbeard-dom. That also cemented my intense love for the Savage Worlds system. After playing it I ha one of those "I don't need any other RPG anymore!" moments. Haven't had a chance to play it with my group until recently. Hope they like it as much as I do because I plan on using it a lot.

    >he's done buying his dwarves, we were about to have a small 1000 point match with my Undead (whatever they were called back then, before they were split into two) vs his dwarves. He goes outside to go smoke.
    >be outside with him, breathing in second hand smoke cause fuck the medical police
    >guy exits from shop
    >can't be older than 16
    >asks my Father, who I had never seen break any rules up to that point, for a cig.
    >my Dad gives him one
    >manager sees it
    >has a boner for the 16 year old or something
    >asks us to leave for the day

    I don't get it, your father broke the law, and you call the store owner a pedo? Your father is either your brother and your father at the same time, or you're a troll.

    Beheading orcs, FUCK YEAH.
    Meet a giant spider when we're running low on health, party agrees to run away.
    Meet a green dragon, the party wants to get out of here since most of them are weak. My fighter who just finished resting and burned all of the cleric's healing magic to avoid death earlier steps forward and goes "I got this." Since you know, being a little kid, I think a dragon is something that is meant to be slayed.

    Turns out dwarves melt quite quickly in acid.

    This. I mean, what the hell, ma?. You could've at least clued the kid in that LRMs have a minimum range in tabletop. Or given him some idea of his ideal range band.

    I volunteered at library to earn stupid high school community service hours. Met a little kid with a dad dying of cancer and mom with 8 - FUCKING EIGHT- kids with another on the way. The kids gave me the "I don't like reading" shit. I made a deal where he'd teach me Yu-Gi-Oh for the last half of the lesson and I'd teach him the coursework for the other half.

    6 years later, I get invited to his public school graduation, where he thanks me for teaching him this shit, because now he can read animu fansubs & shit. He hopes to become a soldier or cop. From what I know from his teachers, he's well on his way.
