Easy Fantasy & Sci-fi RPGs
Dark City Games offers simple light RPG rules and lots of premade interesting scenarios of the ‘choose your own adventure’ sort which can all be played solo or with a small group. Each comes with a map and cardboard counters but we like using minis (of course). And they have a free samples to download to try out.

Great tabletop crafting turtorials. A lot of sci-fi content. Like most modern gamers, the figure he uses are a lot larger than the old school ones we like. Simply reduce the size of the projects by 75% or so.
