New York Society of Play’s Afterschool Programs are built on thoughtful curriculum that teaches students how to apply skills from playing games to the outside world.

In addition to being loads of fun, our classes focus on the following concepts:

  • Confidence and public speaking
  • Conflict resolution and decision-making
  • Emotional and social growth
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Mathematics and logic
  • Self-sufficiency and community-sufficiency
  • Strategy, negotiation, and planning

Afterschool Program Curriculum

Board Games: We offer playthroughs of popular board games like Carcassonne, Santorini, Labyrinth, and more!

Card Games: We will teach and play the Pokemon Trading Card game. Older kids will also be able to play Magic the Gathering. Regardless of age, all players will have the opportunity to use our sample decks to play, and learn how to build their own!

Dungeons & Dragons: Our most popular offering, D&D is a tabletop roleplaying game where kids take on the role of adventurers in a fantasy world, completing quests and defeating mighty monsters.

Fantasy Frontier: A live-action roleplay game that combines physical activity, item collecting, navigation, and role-playing into a game experience unlike any other. Kids will engage in foam sword battles with various enemies (played by our staff) to complete quests and collect items for future adventures.
