Description
The Shire of Roxbury Mill has grown from 5 to 65 active members playing with the group in 3 years -- from a non-entity to a well-known regional influence. In this course, the Seneschal and a Deputy Seneschal of The Shire of Roxbury Mill will explain their methods for recruitment and retention that led to this growth, and use the lens of social gaming theory to help you avoid some of the most common pitfalls that local groups fall into that either dissuade new membership, or that discourage play with the local group.
