This year at PAX Unplugged, Game to Grow presented a panel called Roll for Healing: Therapeutic Game Master Round Table. We presented a similar panel at PAX West 2018 though this panel features some additional panelists who are using role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons in other parts of the country. Enjoy!
We have all seen them or had them at our table. The player who goes against the grain, does not follow the house rules, or is just mean. Time and time again you see the advice of “talk to them like an adult” but how? Our panel of experienced Game Masters is here to help! We will talk about how to go about having difficult conversations with problematic players and how to set up your game to prevent problems from happening.
