Currently, my group of players is my children, ages 7+ through 14+ (and several in between). They all are really excited about playing, but I am having great difficulty keeping them all interested during the game. We do keep the game sessions short (never more than 2 hours), which helps some.
I am certain the difficulty comes from me not having campaign elements that appeal to all the age groups. 7 yr old girls like very different things than 14 yr old boys.
Does anyone have any experience with making this work? OK, that's a really general question.
I'm looking for tips (preferably from parents who have experienced this) on how to keep all players engaged. Maybe some ideas on what styles of play work well for different ages of children. Are there campaign elements/dungeon features that kids find more fun than others?
