Safety Tools help ensure a positive experience for everyone at Gamealot. Unforeseen situations may come up at a table that could make a game not fun or stressful for a player. Safety Tools provide a structure to communicate when those situations occur so that game hosts and Gamealot organizers can better support you.
All tabletop games will be Open Tables.
All board games in play at Gamealot are Open Tables. An Open Table is a tabletop game that welcomes all to join, in a spirit of inclusiveness. In addition to the open ability to join, any gamer may leave an Open Table game if they feel uncomfortable for any reason, including but not limited to harassment, discrimination, bullying or other offensive behaviours. We encourage all participants in a game to discuss problems which may prompt a player to leave a table, but we guarantee the right of all boardgamers to leave a game without explanation if they choose to.
Gamealot endorses and uses the Open Table concept to promote a safe and inclusive boardgaming experience.
