FAQs

Can I sign up my child for multiple or all 3 days?

Absolutely! In fact we recommend it as there will be different games taught each day!

Do I need to supervise my child while they participate in the program?

Yes. While you do not need to watch them constantly, age appropriate supervision by at least one adult is recommended while they participate in the program. One nominated adult MUST be contactable however during the program hours. 

What online safety measures are in place during the program?

When you join our Discord Server, the account you/your child will be using will be given strict permissions on the server. Players can only join the server if they have received our unique link. Under 18 participants will not have access to the general chat and will not have the ability to be privately messaged by other members on the server.

What is Discord?

Discord is an online platform and is extremely popular among gaming and pop culture communities. Think of it as an online forum, chat room, Zoom, community message board all rolled into one! It is free to download! Just type in Discord into a search engine and you will easily find it!

What is Board Game Arena and why do we need a Premium Account?

Board Game Arena is a website, upon which users may play well implemented online versions of over 800 real life board games and card games! While free users of the website are able to play any of the 800+ games on the website, a premium account is required to CREATE a table for most of the more popular games. Therefore we require all board game club participants to have a Premium Account so that managing table creation during the program is as smooth as possible. 

What will a session of the Online Board Game Club actually entail?

A rough outline looks like this:

1. Players will log on to the discord server and their Board Game Arena account in time for the start of the session. 

2. Registered players for each session will be added to a central voice channel on the Discord server

3. All players will be taught how to play a selected game on Board Game Arena

4. Players will break off into groups to play the taught game

5. The moderator(s) will be constantly moving between groups to check on how they are going and help players who have questions with how to play the game

6. All players will be brough back to a central channel to either be taught a new game or to conclude the session, depending on time.
