How can I participate?!

Calm down! Don’t worry. You still have time to join us. We have events every week. Before you decide to join, please read our FAQ first!

FAQ

What kind of games do you play?

We focus on story-based games that give you lots of input (reading and listening) and games that require lots of teamwork and player-to-player interaction.

Do I have to buy the games? How much do they cost?

This depends which gaming event you want to attend. Please check game schedule below to see which games we are currently playing.

Do I need any special equipment? How much does it cost?

Depending on the game we are playing, you may need a good computer. Some games are simple and can be played on any computer, other games require a stronger computer.

If you are using a laptop, I recommend buying a mouse. You should also buy a headset with a microphone. Your voice will sound much better with a good microphone. You can buy both of these items for less than $20.

Do I have to be good at playing video games?

You don’t have to be an expert but you need to know the basics of controlling your computer.

How will this help me learn English/Spanish?

You will practice communicating with your friends and solving problems while playing the game.

We record our sessions so you can go back and watch our adventure again.
