What we're about

A fun and safe space for women to revel in all things nerdy. We host board game nights, discuss sci-fi over cocktails, and throw the best themed parties this side of the Midwest. Our goal is to be a welcoming group with a calendar full of marvelous events!

Games with Dames is queer/trans inclusive, fat-friendly, and welcoming to all races/ethnicities.

Dames Who D&D!

Needs a location

Join us for a Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) urban crawl! Spots are limited to keep things manageable. However, I will be running a session every 2nd Wednesday, so if you don't get a spot this time around, sign up for the next one! The adventure is based in an urban setting and most player characters will be members of the city guard, The Flaming Fist. Character sheets will be provided but if you would like to create your own, get in contact with me. I will try to make things as easy as possible for players- don’t worry if you haven’t played DnD before! Logistics: The event will be hosted at my home in East St. Paul so I will send my address in a private message. My home has a ramp but unfortunately, the bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible. Also, I have cats. If you haven't taken it already, please answer the survey! It will help me prepare: https://goo.gl/forms/wHWWJUSxawuZWj032 Resources: Critical Role has a "Handbooker Helper" series- a bunch of short videos going over various aspects of DnD. Check them out! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1tiwbzkOjQyr6-gqJ8r29j_rJkR49uDN
