Gaming Concepts is a way to start a conversation that kids want to be involved in. They want to be involved with games. They want to be engaged with it. They are collaborating with people who they might never have talked to before. They are working on themselves. They are working on really evaluating their own performance within a team and looking at those other roles besides being a player,”
