    Does anyone here play table top role playing games? I know, this sounds like a really nerdy question and I think the genre has gotten an unfair reputation in the past. The number of rules and fantasy settings seem to put people off. The rules are actually secondary and the story can be about anything you want. It’s all about being creative and having fun together. We just recently started playing Dungeons & Dragons and are really enjoying it. I wish I’d started earlier as it’s giving me much need quality social time. Nowadays I usually find we end up at the pub and I feel like I’m talking to the backs of phones more often than not, so it’s great being able to do something where everybody is fully engaged with each other for a change. A lot of card game shops include spaces and meet ups for doing this sort of thing. It’s a great way to meet new people and a good ice breaker if you’re as shy as I am. In what ways do you guys manage to find fun, quality social time away from busy lives and technology?
