Enable Ability hosted our first ever Dungeons and Dragons evening at Dice Board Games Lounge in Albert Road, the event was a great success! For those who don’t know, D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) derives from the traditional wargaming style of playing. Within Dungeons and Dragons, players are required to create their own character. These characters then embark upon an imaginary adventure, typically within a fantasy setting. A Dungeon Master (DM) serves as the games storyteller and referee. The DM maintains the imaginative setting in which the adventure takes place and plays any other inhabitants within the game world. The characters involved form a party and they interact with the settings inhabitants and each other. Together, they solve dilemmas, engage in combat battles and gather rewards. In the process, the characters earn experience points (XP) in order to rise in gaming levels and can become increasingly powerful over a series of gaming sessions.

Firstly, thank you to all three of our Dungeon Masters who volunteered and help support this incredible evening - thanks goes to Jayce Rainbird, Jim Tolley and Vaughn Goodsall. Each had completely different styles of playing and story campaigns going on. However, every single one of the young people were utterly engaged at each table. It was fantastic to see young people who were often more reserved, fully engaged and confident within this activity.

Secondly, thank you to Dice Board Games Lounge for letting us host our evening at your venue, they were incredibly accommodating and welcoming to our group.

We look forward to hosting many more of these Dungeons and Dragons events in the future.
