Our After-School Program

Tabletop Village is now offering an in-school after-school program to all schools in the greater Seattle area! Ran by our certified Pokémon Professors, the program will teach kids how to play the Pokémon TCG, develop self-confidence and engage in games of friendly competition.

Why should kids play Pokémon TCG?

Games play such an incredible role in the development of children and their socialization. It’s often their first experience developing connections with others. When children play in-person games, they are presented with the question “who am I when I win and who am I when I lose?”. We believe that presenting children with that question allows them to learn how to compete with humility and connect with others.

Within Tabletop Village, we have a tightly-knit community of parents and children–children we’ve seen develop confidence and lifelong friendships. We practice together, we travel together, and we celebrate together. We’ve seen families grow closer, seen children win International Championships and we’ve all learned how to contribute to our shared community space.

Our mission is to provide a safe and inclusive environment for fostering the emotional and social development of children through playing the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
