"Gaming is a way for me to interact with all of the wonderful creative worlds built by the designers and players as well as enjoy the company I am playing with. When I sit down for a fun game of Dominion or Plague Inc. or King of Tokyo, I get to build bonds with the people at the table. When I hit the table for D&D or Warhammer, I get to see not only the game's own world, but the creative visions of myself and the other players as I don my cleric's sacred vestments, or the muddied boots of Cadian trooper. Gaming is a world of imagination with the standardization of rules so it may be shared with others as well.
I love BGE's and want to be part of their growth. Also, frankly, Warhammer is an expensive hobby and my Space Nuns (Adepta Sororitas) need all the help I can give them."

"Gaming means creativity, friendly competition, and quality time. My greatest memories ever made have been playing games with my family during the rare times that we were all together. Playing games puts you in touch with a side of you that is creative and fun and playful that maybe we have forgotten about. It’s so important to channel that person as often as we can so that we don’t forget that life is about play and creativity.
Last year I moved to Chatsworth following my college graduation. At around that time, I became really interested in D&D because during times of moving and driving, I was listening to podcasts. They brought me immense joy and comfort and I decided to find a way to play. Being new to a community is hard so I was really excited to have found the D&D nights here where I could meet new people and learn how to play the game. However, I am an unemployed writer and when I learned that the fees for the D&D nights were going up, I decided to make the effort to try and go as much as my wallet allowed so that I could continue to play. It would be an immense relief to have this grant so that I can continue to learn and grow within this community. The $50 would also go towards my family. They care for me so much and we have had such little time to play these past few years that I would love to use some of that money so that we can make more of those priceless memories once again. Thank you so much for even offering this to folks in the community, I am so proud to be here with you all!"
Luke has been a joy to have him in our D&D for Kids sessions and it has been really cool to see him grow as a D&D gamer in our store! He was able to pick up a copy of Monsters of the Multiverse with his gaming grant!
"Gaming is a way for people to interact with each other, have fun and pass time.
There are things that would definitely help me with my dnd set. It would really help me get better at the game and get supplies."
"I would like to be considered for the gaming grant because my love for D&D has grew exponentially, I always like to do new things that’ll help me grow especially when it’s out of my comfort zone and I never thought I’d feel this way for table top games. Thanks to BGE I want to expand more and learn more games and have the most fun. So to wrap it all up, I’m a great fit for the gaming grant because I want to keep growing in RPGs and everything I will learn in my journey and in this community."
"I enjoy playing board games, card games. My favorite game Yu-Gi-Oh. If I won the $50 I could use the money to possibly to possibly try new games."
