This club is a welcoming environment for students who wish to connect with other students like themselves.
Becker Tabletop Gaming Club
The purpose of the BTGC is to make an easy way for tabletop gamers of all skill levels to connect and set up games, either with their own group or with new people. The club will focus on two aspects: Longer term tabletop RPGs such as Dungeons and Dragons that would require weekly commitment, and simpler tabletop games that can be set up and played in one night on a whim. People will be able to sign up for whatever roles they desire, whether they want to participate in a game or try running one themselves. Our goals are to get as many people on the campus who enjoy or are interested in tabletop games signed up for the club. The more people that are signed up, the more people can be reached for games and events by other members. One does not need to participate in both aspects to enjoy the club; they can participate in only the longer running campaigns or just the single night events as they so please. We want to create a network of gamers across the school to bring the community together more. Currently, the Becker tabletop communities consist of several isolated groups who mostly interact within themselves and do not reach out to others. By forming a unified club, we hope to encourage collaboration between the groups and to create a unified Becker tabletop community.
