Play the Game – the child of Kidsplaining

We talked about Kidsplaining, back in episode 203. But Allison and Daniel have moved to doing a lot more of the videos themselves, and also changed the name of the channel to Play the Game HQ.

The goal of everything they do is to help families play more games without feeling intimidated.

Series on the channel:

Play The Game: “Tabletop without the famous people” – entertaining playthroughs.
