Playing games teaches us so much!  

Social skills such as diplomacy, patience, and the art of conversation are built along with skills of logic, planning, creativity, and strategy building. Each week Ms. Rachel will start students with a guided ice breaker in order to help build a sense of community.  Then students will practice leadership and community skills as they play a variety of “table” games including, but not limited to Solo (like Uno), Carcossone, Haiclue, King of Tokyo, and many others. Weekly games will be chosen by group consensus. Students will be gifted a one month Premium account on Board Game Arena (an online gaming site); after the first month they may choose to continue ($2.50-$5/month) or convert to a free account. 

This club may be credited as an extracurricular on high school transcripts.  Possibilities for leadership roles available.

Ms. Rachel likes to provide students with the tools and opportunities they need to be brave and try things on their own in a safe environment.  Playing games is great for the brain and should be fun!  She is happy to work with students on molehills before they turn into mountains.  Although Ms. Rachel will be available to help with facilitating game play, she usually does not participate as a player. She hopes to see students become confident in their gaming and communication skills and make this club something of which they will be proud.


  • Students will practice fair and courteous game play
  • Students will practice conversation and communication skills with both the instructor and their peers
