Disability Network is excited to share a virtual social group celebrating all types of online games. This group meets online from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Mondays and Fridays and 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Saturdays. Currently, the gaming group is hoping to play any and every game that people enjoy. From board games like Carcassone and Saboteur to cross-platform games like Brawlhalla and Dauntless, we like to try out a wide variety of games. If there is a specific game you think the group would enjoy, please send Andrew an email at andrew@disabilitynetwork.net to suggest that game.

To play these games, you will need the following:

-A working internet connection.
-A personal email address. Once you have an email address, please send a message to andrew@disabilitynetwork.net.
-For video games, you will need a working computer, or current-gen gaming system that can play online with others.
-For board games, you will need a device that can browse websites (such as a computer, phone or tablet)
-A Discord account (you can register for an account at https://discord.com/).
-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 and tested before that day’s gaming group starts. Andrew is available by email and Discord if you would like to schedule an appointment for help getting a game to work.
-Completed Disability Network 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.
