 Gaming on the Spectrum is a social group for teens ages 13+. The group gets together a couple hours every week to play table-top role playing games. No experience with role playing games is necessary to join a group. The group will meet once per week for 2 hours over a 9 week period to play a table-top role playing game (TRPG). The game is a continuous story collaboratively created with a game manager (GM) and the players. The players through the characters they create and control, decide what their characters do, and the story of the game builds around their interactions with game world they play in. The games are very social as the players must work together to overcome obstacles and solve problems. The groups are are a chance to make new friends, and have a lot of fun.

 

In our upcoming session we will be playing Predation by Monte Cook games. Predation is about the descendants of time travelers who have gotten stuck in the Cretaceous period. The navigate the world looking for lost technology, and time anomalies in hopes they may one day be able to travel back to their own time. 

Role-playing has been found build a sense of community in its players, the weekly sessions allows the players to take part in a social common interest. Role-playing also encourages complex problem solving and provides participants with the opportunity to learn an extensive array of skills through the enactment of scenarios. Gaming on the Spectrum offers participants a safe space to enact alternate personas through a process known as identity alteration. Studies have shown that table top role playing games also help players be more creative and adaptable.
