Save the Date! August 11th – 4pm
Dungeons & Dragons Launch at Inclusive Game Group at the WB Community Library, 15001 Wells Port Drive.
The game Dungeons & Dragons, aka D&D, is heavily featured in the hit TV show Stranger Things, but how does one go about learning this hobby if they don’t already have a friend that has mastered it? This is a question that Girl Scout Sarah Berver has wondered about.
She loves playing D&D with her older brother and his friends, along with all of the pop culture references it generates, but has found that this 45-year-old game is still thought of as a “boys’ hobby.” The game is frequently presented to new players in a way that comes across as overly complicated, even in beginner starter sets. This can cause novice players to give up on learning how to play the game.
For her Girl Scout Silver Award project, which is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn, Sarah has partnered with the Wells Branch Community Library to develop D&D Starter Kits that will be available for check out. The kits will contain the official 5th Edition D&D Starter Set along with a number of accessories and cheat sheets she’s putting together and her own “Girl’s Guide to D&D” pamphlet to help players be able to jump in and learn the game while playing.
Find out more at the Dungeons & Dragons Launch at Inclusive Game Group at 4 pm on August 11th at the Wells Branch Community Library.
