The Bodhana Group is thrilled to announce we are the recipient of the Explore York Bloom Grant!
$60,000 for two years to specifically grow Save Against Fear as the premiere York tabletop game convention! Thank you to Explore York for beliveing that change begins with community, and tabletop games are designed to build community. Through play, we learn communication, connection, and creativity to keep us moving forward together!
Every year since 2010, The Bodhana Group combines the love for tabletop with the love for our community by showcasing all of the benefit gaming can accomplish. Celebrating the games, the people, and the opportunities to learn how to bring your own character to life, play with us and game for good at Save Against Fear!
