With the explosive growth of tabletop gaming, I created the Deck of Player Safety (DOPS) for in-person gaming, in particular conventions and organized play, as a tool for all participants to have a QUICK and ANONYMOUS method for signaling any hot-button topics they want excluded from their gaming session.  Most importantly, they can do so without being in the spotlight as this method is anonymous, even to the Game Master.  Incorporating the DOPS at your table demonstrates you respect your fellow gamers and value everyone's enjoyment.

What is it?: The Deck of Player Safety is a casino-quality card deck made in the USA from sustainable materials.  Included in the deck are:

  • 30 hot-button cards, each with a different hot-button topic
  • 12 "Anything Goes" cards
  • 8 short-form instructional cards you can hand out to remind your players of the process
  • 2 blank cards upon which you can write custom hot-buttons (preliminary tests show these are reusable with wet erase markers, but not dry erase)
  • 2 "X-Cards" to implement the optional X-Card** Safety Tool
  • A swanky box to hold your deck of cards
  • Instructions on how to add the Deck of Player Safety to any game and recommendations for adjusting your game on the fly based on the process
