Game On! (GO!). Gaming For Good
Game On! is a project of FNC to bring table top role playing games (RPGs) like Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) to underserved groups that might benefit from its social and entertainment benefits. Kids gain and reinforce social cooperation, critical thinking, and arithmetic skills in a developmentally appropriate, fun environment of epic fantasy role play like from the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books and movies. Adults benefit from play too but our project is concentrating on school-age youth. We hope to develop after school and summer camp programs. Help us bring “gaming for good” to your neighborhood. “Game On!,” as we say.
