Gaming as Development Programs

Additional Information

 

Mythic Solutions believes that we are healthier as  part of a community.  That we ourselves become healthier through  creativity, self expression, and personal awareness.  We also believe  that these things and more can be found in role-playing games. Through  group story telling and narration we can change who we are, exploring  how we would like to be.  Role-playing  games are about more than slaying fictional monsters with an imaginary  sword.  They are about people getting together, to cooperatively tell a  story.  A story in which the characters experience various struggles and  challenges, but through teamwork and creativity create a tale that  resonates with the players themselves. 


Our  Game Masters share more than a love of gaming.  We believe that by  playing through guided scenarios (aka role-playing games) we can support  cognitive development in our youth.  We can encourage end develop  skills such as: reading, math, critical thinking, problem solving,  teamwork, and leadership. As well as can share understanding relating to  the history, culture or traditions our own or of other peoples.  These  skills and knowledge are relevant for our children and youth especially  in the North. Long cold winters and remote communities, people of all  ages can struggle to find healthy ways to keep busy or engaged.  Young  people and adults alike can get caught up in anti-social, unhealthy, or  reckless behavior.  However a group of gamers can always find something  to do on a cold winter day.  They can gather as friends without needing  drugs or alcohol, and they can build bonds of community and friendship  instead of getting bored and into trouble.


Mythic  Solution aims to use role-playing and cooperative storytelling to  foster individual well-being and to build better communities.  To this end we have grouped our Games Support Services into three core programs:

Therapeutic.  Working in partnership with local counselors and therapists, participants and their counselor work collaboratively with our Game Masters to  identify goals and objectives, and to establish scenarios by which the participant can address their concerns.  Ongoing communication and involvement between participant, game master, and counselor helps to ensure that progress remains relevant and on track.     


Community Building:  Our Healthy Community programs are targeted towards educational/developmental programs, and also to the remote communities of the North.  Mythic Solutions believes not only do role-playing games promote brain development, problem solving, and critical thinking, but they also support positive social interaction and can ease cases of  isolation and loneliness.  To this end Mythic Solutions supports youth education, literacy programing, traditional knowledge, and justice diversions.  We also offer Gaming as Community Workshops and Game Master Development Programs to our Northern Communities.  Finally, in collaboration with local businesses, non-profits, and charities, we help to organize events such as fundraisers, conventions, or other community engagement events.  


Recreation and Enjoyment:  At their core, role-playing games have always been about having fun and making friends.  Mythic Solutions actively supports introducing people to this exciting and creative hobby.  If you would like to try playing but lack a group.  If you would like to learn how to run your own game.  Or if you have a group of friends and just need someone to run an adventure, then contact Mythic Solutions.  Birthday's (youth or adult alike), Holidays, Retreats, or other events.


Typical Sessions last 3 hours, and reoccur on a basis of 1 / 5 / 10, or ongoing play programs. Prices vary by program/distance from Whitehorse.
