We believe there is a place at the tabletop for all people–this includes people of all genders, all sexual orientations, all races/nationalities, and all ability levels. We know tabletop gamers are a broad and diverse bunch, and we think our games and game art should reflect the full spectrum of human diversity.
A Place at the Tabletop will focus on evaluating the level of diverse representation in a variety of tabletop games, in hopes of sparking a broader conversation within the tabletop community.
We are deeply, profoundly uninterested in debating whether or not representation matters or whether games should even bother to make space for a variety of people. It does, we should.
This question bores us. It insults us. We’re over it. If you don’t agree with this basic premise, this is unapologetically not the blog for you. There are plenty of places on the internet you can go to debate that. This is not one of them.
But if you want to look more closely at issues of diversity and representation within games, we hope you stick around!
