Beginning as a weekend gathering of 35 people in a local game store with 2 industry supporters, we are now projecting an attendance of over 250 people and growing, with 30+ industry and local supporters. We've secured a great location that offers wide open spaces at the Harrisburg Mall in Harrisburg, PA!

 

For our 8th year of Save we are, like, so totally honoring one the most radical decades in gaming! We throw you back to the righteous days of the 1980's when role playing games were satanic, every TV show and movie had a board game, and the mall was THE place to be! Featuring a retro board game "arcade", a Rubik's Cube challenge, and so much nostalgia it will gag you with a spoon, we're celebrating like it's 1989!

Save Against Fear Sponsorship Packages help us achieve fundraising success by directly offsetting convention costs, such as venue, tables & chairs, and printing. Your contribution ensures our fundraising dollars directly benefit our community and not the convention. We have multiple packages available, all including website, social, and podcast announcements. Consider leveling up your giving and help Bodhana game with intention!

This training starts with a learning experience on Friday, followed by playing in games throughout the weekend and then regrouping on Sunday for a Focus Group discussion about what they encountered and what could be taken back to their practice.  Your sponsorship of this level allows us to seek Continuing Education Units for the training, “Transformation at the Table: The Clinical Application of Narrative Role-Playing Games”, encouraging more professionals to learn this unique approach.
