What are some of the other benefits of tabletop RPGs though? Well this list includes:
- A Shared Activity: Playing RPGs is just like any other hobby; it comes with a built-in social network. Whether you're moving to a new town or just looking to make friends you have an activity you can participate in to easily meet new people.
- Enhanced Creativity: Roleplaying games bring out creativity in unusual ways. The more you play the more likely you are to learn how to think creatively.
- Team-Building: You don't have to get involved in a sportsball team to learn how to work together as a team. Roleplaying games can teach you valuable skills that all the dodgeball and group projects in the world won't manage to hammer home.
There are a slew of other reasons to play RPGs which may or may not include pattern recognition, increased math skills, and telling more interesting stories. If you want to check out the list for yourself then read the article.
