GAIM will provide an opportunity for those with Anxiety to engage in a variety of board games, card games and miniature table top games in a calm, supportive environment.

Gaming is a title that incorporates many aspects of games such as board games, card games, miniature games and role-playing games. Video games also fall under the category of gaming, but GAIM will not focus on the digital aspect of gaming preferring to focus on those that are considered Table top Games.

Table top gaming is a hobby that promotes social interaction through light competitive and co-operative gameplay. The benefits of playing board games have been documented in many articles relating to several Mental Health conditions such as depression and anxiety.

Gaming gently encourages people to socialise and communicate with others through the common purpose of the game. Gaming can help develop friendships and interests and can be accessible to all being played anywhere.

At GAIM we will offer the chance for people to come together in a calm, friendly, welcoming environment. There will be support available on the day to help introduce you into a group and talk to you more about the hobby and get the games up and running.

There will be something you can try regardless of age or experience and if someone doesn’t quite feel ready to engage with a group there will be the chance to play solo games or those for 2 players.

GAIM will be held at The Games Table, 86 Magdalen St, Norwich, NR3 1JF
