The focus of this week’s show comes from a letter a listener sent us about playing online with his eight year old daughter. We talk about strategies for raising strong gamer girls and how to deal with trolling that should be reserved for adult gamers. We have some new commercials we discuss and a quick WRaP about our favorite shows of the new fall season, along with the games we’re playing and Regina’s continued addiction to The House of Night.
As always, we’d love your feedback. In particular we would love to hear some strategies from other gaming parents about handling online game play with their kids. How do you address the kind of harassment we talk about in the show? Leave us your suggestions in the comments.
Until next time, game on!
Regina & Rhonda
Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
