This panel discusses how game-masters (and gamers in general) set about creating an inclusive gaming table where all are invited and made to feel welcome. Even in the 21st century, there are few females who have game-mastered her own games and even more often been the only female in a gaming group. There are always stories of how women have been mistreated in some way when they try to join a game. How do we change the stereotype that women don’t play table top games and how do we make the gaming space more welcoming?
