CRITICAL CORE is Using Tabletop Gaming to Help Kids with Autism
Tabletop gaming is growing in popularity with reckless abandon and now some want to use it to help others. Critical Core is a new tabletop RPG that is designed for kids on the autism spectrum. The goal is to use the game to help the children build social skills and confidence and can be done in groups or simply with one’s family. The game is currently on Kickstarter and has already met its funding goal with about 36 days to go. For as little as $30 you can get a digital version of the game or for $50 you get a physical copy and a digital copy.
When you get the game, you’ll get a Facilitator’s guide, player and game master guides, three adventure modules, four sets of dice, four pre-made character sheets as well as blank ones, game cards for reference, game tokens for visualization, and a reusable map. What’s more is that if you don’t have interest in owning the game, you can still pay and for $50 (plus $10 shipping) have a copy shipped to a good cause.
Critical Core is made by Game to Grow which is a non-profit organization. Game to Grow teamed up with advocates, educators, parents, and therapists to make the game as helpful as possible. However, you don’t have to have autism to enjoy it, or at least that’s what they say.
You can head over to donate to the Kickstarter before it ends on April 26, 2019.
