Tabletop gaming has been a great way for friends to get together face-to-face, socialize and have fun since prehistoric times. Now, with advances in technology that allow realistic, high-excitement thrills on a TV or computer screen, people are spending much less time in actual contact with other humans.
While advances in gaming technology have created some pretty amazing games for individuals to play on their computers and consoles, our social skills are on the decline. Spend some time with other people; a good game of Risk is often still the best way to game while enjoying the direct company of others. Or, if a game of Scrabble is more to your taste, it will broaden your vocabulary and you’ll make friends a lot better than you will with even the best FPS on the Xbox. So shut off your computer or gaming console, and head out to I3 Detroit on Saturday, July 10th starting at 2pm for some tabletop gaming. A number of games will be there already, or you can bring your own favorite game that you’d like to play with others.
See you there!
