The RPG Center
The Role-Playing Game Community Center provides tabletop role-playing games (TRPG) for children 4-12, teenagers 13-17 years old, adults and senior adults 18+ years old.
The RPG Community Center Grand Opening to the public was June 2th, 2022 from Noon to 5:00 pm.
The community center's initial public hours will begin
July 9th August 13th:
Public access hours will increase as we get more regular volunteers.
Our insurance requires us to always have a minimum of 2 background checked volunteers in the building in order to open the doors to the public since we allow minors in the facilities.
If you would like to help in person as a volunteer, please see our Volunteer Jobs Page andsign up today!
The RPG Museum is at th same location but a different building (Building A, while the cmmunity center is Building B). We are hoping to open the museunm to the public near the end of 2022 or early 2023. There is a LOT of work to do on building A (which waw built in the 1890s), and we have to raise funds to cover the very expensive museum / collectibles / unique items insurance coverage.

RPG Research is 100% volunteer-run 501(c) non-profit research and human services charitable organization providing community role-playing game programs. RPG Research Mission: https://rpgresearch.com/mission - Vision: https://rpgresearch.com/vision - Impact: https://rpgresearch.com/impact
We have multiple tables available each week. Right now we are at just 3 tables in the main community common area room (Building B, Room 1, tables 1-3) (south entrance through fence gate).
We are working weekly on getting the other separate rooms/tables ready.
We should have 2-3 more rooms in the next week or three ready (the RPG Trailer 1 (Vengeance), RPG Trailer 2 (Octane), and RPG Bus - total 6 tables concurrently).
Room/table 7 is a separate out-building and going to take more donations and work for us to finish the game room building (windows, insulation, sheet rock).
Rooms/Tables 8-12 are in Building A (rooms 1-4 of that building).
We need to get security bars added to Building A's doors and windows before we put anything of value in there, which depends on donations, so it will probably be October/November before those rooms are ready.
We are limited in how many tables we can staff with our volunteer game masters each week depending on the availability of our trained volunteers each week. We will be recruiting new trainees to join our free, rigorous, game master training program, starting next week. Courses for new trainees will begin in September.
We hope to see you at the RPG Community Center soon!
