Dungeons and Dragons Club
D&D Club is a place for student to play the popular roleplaying game, Dungeons and Dragons. Students take on the role of characters they create, rolling dice to determine attributes such as how smart, strong, or charming the character is. Then, one student assumes the role of the Dungeon Master, or DM, who tells a story. The players interact in the story, making actions and interacting with the DM. D&D is an interactive choose-your-own-adventure style game that helps students problem solve, use math and English skills, and work together.
Meetings are broken into two groups. We first meet as a large group to talk about various aspects of the game, such as character development or tips on how to safely get through a boss fight. After a few minutes, we break into the various groups and start playing.
Skills we develop include math skills, game theory, problem-solving, out-of-the-box thinking, English skills, storytelling, public speaking, and even art skills.
