Currently spectating a game of Munchkin after a quick game of Tsuro. #tabletopday is in full force! Come out and play at The Generator Coffee House in Downtown Garland Plaza! 😁👌☺ (at Generator Coffee House and Bakery)
Ladies of International Table Top Day! <3
The game table, for me and many people I know, is a happy place. An escape. A safe place to be. Somewhere where we can leave the things behind that we want to, and embrace new identities, new experiences, and feel powerful and in control. I have always enjoyed that aspect of gaming, and whether it is video games or tabletop, feeling safe is an important thing for me.
There have been past articles on how to address sensitive topics in your games, as well as building trust as a game master. There is a lot to be said for a GM’s responsibility to create a safe place for players, and even for players to support each other, share the space and make sure that everyone has time to shine. However, there is something I think many players are not aware is in their power, and is in fact their priority, especially female players.

Next week, Munchkin with the Fairy Dust expansion.
So much win. <3
