Lots of panels have talked about getting kids into tabletop gaming... In our house it's a little different - I'm a third generation gamer, raising a fourth generation. Join myself and my daughter talking about growing up as gamers. We'll answer questions about the pros and cons, talk about our stories, and give our suggestions as to what our parents did right or wrong to get us (and keep us) in gaming.
