Disability Network Northern Michigan is excited to share a virtual social group celebrating online video games. This group meets online from 1:00 to 4:00 on Wednesdays. Currently, the Wednesday gaming group plays free2play PC games like Starcraft II and Team Fortress2. We also try to play Cross-play games, like Brawlhalla, Dauntless and Rocket League.  Cross-play games are games where people on different gaming platforms can play together in a group. This group plays fighting games, strategy games, racing games, shooting games and any game where you absolutely need a computer or a game console to enjoy it. These are games where friends can play with each other over the internet. If there is a specific game you absolutely love that you would want to play online with other members of DNNM, please let Andrew know and he can help make that happen. If you normally play on a specific console, please let Andrew know so he can help match you with other DNNM friends who play on that same system. If there is a paid game that you love, please let Andrew know so he can help match you with other friends that play that same game.   

Please feel free to stop in for as long as you wish. This event is free, with space for 15 gamers at a time. If you can’t make it for the entire time, that is acceptable. We’re just happy to have you joining us for what works for you. Please register in advance with Andrew at andrew@disabilitynetwork.net. When you register, Andrew will message you with the games we will be playing Wednesday. Please download those games in advance, so we can start gaming ASAP on that day.  

To play these games, you will need the following.
  1. A working internet connection.
  2. A personal email address. Once you have an email address, please send a message to andrew@disabilitynetwork.net.
  3. A working computer, or current-gen gaming system that can play online.
  4. A Discord account (you can register for an account at https://discord.com/).
  5. Already downloaded games that everyone can play. When you email Andrew to register and you let him know the systems you have, he will email you back the games that work for everyone signed up and where to get them. Please have them downloaded by Tuesday night. Andrew will be available on the Discord and on email Tuesday evening to help with tech support if you have trouble downloading the games. 
  6. Completed Disability Network Northern Michigan paperwork. When you email Andrew, he will send a copy of the paperwork to you. After that paperwork is filled out by you or a family member, you just email it back to him. This paperwork can be filled out on a computer or phone.
