So You're the Only Female at Your Gaming Table: A Survival Guide


Does it feel like every game night you are hearing one too many "manly" jokes? Afraid to speak up because you don't want the group thinking you are "too sensitive"? Is it ruining your fun? Does it make you want to quit? How far is too far? Lady Diceacorn and Meepiline from the Ladies and ELS Day Boston are here to save the day with humor and tips on how to tackle this difficult topic with love and from a place of understanding. They will also give GM's direction on how to handle a female players discomfort at the table.
