Imagine an HFA teenager helping a younger child win a certain level on a video game. Imagine two children, who normally wouldn’t want to socialize, excitedly exchanging GameBoy tips.

Parents of children who have not succeeded in organized sports or other activities before find this is one arena where their children shine. Even a child who chooses to simply side play with the other children is still having fun! The kids enjoy the games and the potluck food, and the adults find friendships and understanding while sharing information about their children with one another

Happy birthday, Game Club!

Game Club is 10 years old! Join us this friday (February 12) for our birthday celebration. Along with the usual pizza, video games, and other fun, we will have two cakes (one will be gluten free), a group photo, and a visit from independent filmmaker Jeff Grinta, who will be filming a brief “promo video”. Meet us at the usual time place. Don’t miss out on the fun!

Cost: A donation of $8 per family is requested to offset monthly fees for use of the space.

Activities: Video games such as Wii, X-Box 360, Game Cube, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Supernintendo, SEGA and other favorites are projected on the walls using InFocus projectors (this is ultra cool!). Gameboy, Pokemon and Board Games are also available.

Thanks to Jonathan Chase for the tip.
