The Carl-Schurz-Haus Gaming Club

The Carl-Schurz-Haus Gaming Club (CSH Gaming) is a space for school kids to meet and play games, while practicing their English. We meet on a weekly basis, currently on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6:30 pm. At our meetings, we usually play Minecraft or games on the Nintendo Switch (Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Brothers, etc.) together. Minecraft is by far the game we play the most and we love to set and work on Minecraft Build Challenges. These can be anything from thematic challenges (towers, farms, and caves) to more detailed challenges like “where do monsters live?” In our weekly meetings, we sometimes also like to play shortened games of Dungeons and Dragons. We make up characters on the spot, forget about the math and statistics and let the dice do the talking. In these sessions, we have adventured on air bound islands, battled evil wizards and sentient castles, and searched for unfathomably bounteous treasure.

Everyone between ages 10 and 18 is welcome to join our Gaming Club. There is no language requirement, but you should have a rudimentary understanding of the English language. The CSH Gaming Club provides Minecraft accounts, laptops, and Nintendo Switches and games, but everyone is welcome to bring their own computers, Switches, or games – preferably multiplayer games.

Role Playing Games

The Carl-Schurz-Haus Gaming Club hosts an afternoon of fun and games once every two months. In cooperation with the English Role-Playing Game (RPG) group of the Rollenspielverein Freiburg, we offer a variety of RPGs including such games as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D).

Do you want to experience life as a pirate? Or maybe you want to switch sides and live life as a goblin in the Dark Lord's Army. Either way, one of our Dungeon Masters (DMs) will have a game for you. Before we start, we briefly introduce the games being run, give a content warning, and other important info before we begin play. Games typically last 2-4 hours. We offer refreshments throughout the event. If you want to join sign up on our website – you can find our events and registration links in our event calendar. We can't wait to hear about your adventures.


We are always looking for new adventures. If you would like to become one of our Dungeon Masters send an email to gaming[at] with your contact and a description of your adventure.
