As people continue to follow stay-at-home orders to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Wizards of the Coast continues to make things easier for community programs.
A few weeks ago, Wizards of the Coast started making some Dungeons & Dragons content available for free. For players, it’s been helpful to continue playing with the tabletop community in a digital space. From coloring pages and adventures with kids in mind to adventures and modules for adult gamers, it’s never been easier to get into D&D. While Wizards’ digital market for Magic: The Gathering is running with Arena (which currently has the newest expansion, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths available) and Friday Night Magic at Home.
Wizards of the Coast is now making it easier for community-based programs to get their own virtual gaming space up and running. The digital kit includes a welcome letter to help engage with your community about Magic and D&D, codes for free booster packs on Magic Arena, and a code for one legendary bundle on D&D Beyond. This is a fantastic kit that can encourage your local community to join in on the tabletop community while stuck at home.
There is a catch—this kit isn’t available to just anyone. You have to be a representative of an enrichment organization within Canada and the U.S. This includes employees and volunteers at organizations such as a school, library, community center, or scout troop. You also have to be the age of 18 or older and be the gaming representative for the organization.
Are you part of an enrichment organization? Has your group held physical meetings to play Magic: The Gathering or Dungeons & Dragons before? Either way, this digital kit that Wizards of the Coast is supplying can get you started and keep your organization engaged while physical meetings are on hold. Let us know how it goes in the comments below!
