Somewhere between childhood and adulthood, we’ve stopped playing. Adult play is a time to let loose and to be creative in an unstructured, social way. To find out more about “Why Play Matters for Adults” read the article by helpguide.org

For our first ever Game Night Edition, we’ll be playing Pictionary, no art degree required.
