Today, we’re talking to Dave and Ted from Nerdarchy! Dave and Ted are two dads with a passion for Dungeons and Dragons that have turned that passion in to a thriving website and YouTube channel.

In Today’s Episode, we talk about using Dungeons and Dragons and similar roleplaying games to create quality time with family. Dave and Ted discuss how roleplaying games can help us bond as a family, how they can improve executive function and social skills, the best games to get younger kids started playing (It’s not D&D), why role playing games make great educational tools, and what to do if you don’t want to play, but think your kids would.
