Our first event was born out of me wanting to get my personal friends together to play games. I originally made the event private on facebook, but after realizing I couldn’t let people join the event with these settings, I made it public and people I didn’t know were signing up. We were able to sell out our 30 spots.
Our second event doubled in size with 60 players, 12 DMs, and my partner and I running the event. We were able to offer a range of games, door prizes from local businesses, and raise money for charity.
This event was born out of so many parents asking to have their kids come to our events. One mother in particular offered to provide us with door prizes and I knew I had to start this event. We had 7 children attend and had 2 tables going. We had door prizes and hosted it at the RPL Central Library.
Our third event was very much the same as last time, but with some behind the scenes modifications such as using eventbrite for all of our ticketing to create a smoother event on both event coordination and attendee engagement. We were also able to reduce people who didn’t attend last minute which was a challenge for our second event.
Due to Covid, this event was hosted through Roll20. We had 10 people attend and ran two tables to give people the chance to try the newest Dungeons and Dragons book.
Due to Covid, this event was hosted online. We hosted one table of Call of Cthulhu to give people the chance to try out the system.
In our attempt to continue our events during the era of covid, we had to quickly switch to an online model but we were able to have two tables of players, one for new players and one for senior players.
This was our second event for children, but this time we opened up to parents and guardians who were able to learn and play Dungeons and Dragons. This 20 person event sold out and we had great reviews from parents about their children's experience.
This was our first adult event post covid, and we sold 50 tickets, raised 400$ for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina and Area, at Birmingham's Vodka and Ale House. It was a great success, making connections and having fun together.
This was our third children's event and we were able to give tickets to Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Regina and Area to provide to their mentors and youth. We had two tables playing and learning with mentors and parents involved.
With 9 tables, 47 players, specialty drinks raising $1 for donation for each, direct donations from players, and donations from ticket sales, we were able to raise $600 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina and Area!
With 4 tables, selling out, and donating ticket to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Regina, we were able to get a punch of people together having a blast learning and having fun together!
We had a great turn out and discuss the organization, our plans for the future, and brought on several board members to grow our base and capacity to put on more events throughout the year.
With having sold out our 40 tickets in 48 hours, we had a packed night of Dungeons and Dragons. We were able to raise $500 for John Howard Society's Lulu Lodge.
