We’re excited to announce that we will be at PAX South this year for the second year in a row!
We loved going last year. PAX South is a little smaller than PAX West (formerly PAX Prime), which gives it a much more intimate vibe, and the people in San Antonio were very friendly and welcoming. Last year we had a fantastic audience and fantastic enforcers who stayed over 45 minutes after our panel was scheduled to end to have an extended Q/A.
One year ago we presented at PAX West (then called PAX Prime) for the first time. We were so excited to be sharing about our social skills groups at a convention we had been attending as fans for so many years. In January, we presented at PAX South in San Antonio, Texas.
It’s been a crazy last few weeks over here at Wheelhouse Workshop! We doubled the number of groups we are running, and opened an office space to run our groups in South Seattle. Needless to say, we’ve been very busy, but without further ado, here’s our blog for the week!

What exactly is a tabletop role-playing game, anyway?
In this week’s post, we’ll be continuing the discussion of why we use tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons in our social skills groups for teens. In this post, we’ll share how tabletop role-playing games inherently help players develop creative problem-solving skills, why creative problem solving is an important life skill, and how we use games intentionally to help our clients become more comfortable thinking outside the box.
