Virtual Programs 2024

Spring 2024 is Live!

New York Society of Play’s virtual Summer 2023 programming schedule is here! From July to September, we’re bringing your families a thoughtful curriculum that teaches students how to apply skills from playing games to the outside world including:

  • Confidence and public speaking
  • Conflict resolution and decision-making
  • Emotional and social growth
  • Mathematics and logic
  • Strategy, negotiation, and planning

Join us in 2023 to play familiar favorites such as Dungeons & Dragons, or explore new worlds in Minecraft – all over Zoom with friends from across the country.

Our Curriculum

  • Dungeons & Dragons
    • 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. D&D helps kids develop confidence, mathematical literacy, public speaking skills, problem-solving, planning, empathy, and creativity.
  • Minecraft Heroes
    • Minecraft is an easy-to-learn video game where what your child can build is only limited by their imagination. Contribute to our child-friendly, private server and make your mark by building with various types of 3D blocks. “Heroes” is a mod that allows players to have more control over their character than in traditional Minecraft. Each child can choose a class (mage, warrior, druid, bard, rogue, pirate, or cleric), gain experience, level up, and earn powerful spells and abilities.
  • Minecraft Pixelmon
    • Pixelmon is a fan made mod for Minecraft that adds Pokemon to the world of Minecraft. This server has every pokemon, so students can catch, train, and battle with their favorites. Students will overcome challenges at the Pokemon Gym, collect a one-of-a-kind team of Pokemon, and build their world in the traditional Minecraft fashion.
