Some of my best friendships were made during my teen years sitting around a table pretending to be a half-elf druid with a Warg as a pet. I am still friends with the people I played Dungeons and Dragons with, and the game has become a staple of my adult life. Dungeons and Dragons is just one of the many awesome tabletop games that can be played with many people, but it happens to be my favorite. As an avid gamer and mythology lover, anything to do with ancient myths (especially Greek or Norse), and mysteries is right up my alley. Tabletop gaming allows the creative type to unleash their imagination and have loads of fun, especially as the Dungeon Master, where your friend’s (character’s) fates are literally in your hand.
Some of my other favorite tabletop games are Werewolf, Call of Cthulhu, Munchkin, Apples to Apples, and Adventure Time Love Letter. I also enjoy playing the MMORPG World of Warcraft, which takes you to the warring realm of Azeroth, and reading about the Drow Elf Drizzt Do’Urden and his tumultuous life in the Forgotten Realms series. Tabletop gaming is an incredibly fun way to meet new friends, read some awesome stories, and create your own world or characters, places, and scenarios. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
Your library is the perfect place to learn how to play tabletop games, make new friends, and discover something that you will enjoy for years to come. Remember to stop by our Teen Room to check out our upcoming program calendar and flyers too.
