A lot of you out there have kids that are getting to the age where you’re looking to introduce them to gaming. And there’s plenty of board games out there designed for just that sort of thing. But what about if you want to introduce them to the world of miniatures games? There’s a lot less opportunity for that. However, Privateer Press is looking to change that with their First Shot event, specifically designed for parents to teach their kids the intricacies of minis games.
From the announcement:
For 15 years war has engulfed the Iron Kingdoms. In this crucible of conflict, countless warriors have answered the call and forged their legends. Now it is time for those legends to mentor the next generation of heroes.
WARMACHINE: First Shot is a very special Organized Play team event specifically designed as a way for parents to introduce the joy of WARMACHINE to their of-age children. In this one- day event, parents take on the role of mentors, controlling event-specific mentor solos while their child takes command of a small WARMACHINE army built from the First Shot event rules. This event is all about providing a fun introduction to the hobby and game of WARMACHINE.
