Star Wars – How old is old enough?

My kids (4 and 6) are petitioning to see Star Wars….While my wife doesn’t think it is a good idea, I’m on the fence. Howold is old enough? I’ve gotten them gaming, but think that maybe it is time for some “source material”. Any thoughts?

As a gamer, one of the benefits of having children is that you’re building your future gaming group. My kids (daughter-5 and son-3) have been intrugued by gaming books, dice, and such since…well, since birth.  They’ve been bugging me to run a game for them for some time.  A few weeks ago, I did just that.

I’ve been doing interactive bedtime stories, complete with pixie’s, goblins, ogres, magic….the whole nine yards. In that vein I set up a freeform-ish D&D game. We used a d20. I would set a target number for any activities, they would roll, and I would interpret. It was a great time. I was particularly impressed with how my daughter riffed with the story line…tying her (Twinkledust the Pixie) character in. “Wait, I remember that guy, he tried to steal my wand one time!” (about the villian, Malagrim, who had just robbed her friend).

I’ve attached scans of their characters and some supporting cast…Can’t wait to play again.
