The word geek is a slang term originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people; in current use, the word typically connotes an expert or enthusiast obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit.
Patrick is an unabashed geek; this extends to Roleplaying Games, which have gained considerable traction in the past decade as a performance stage, in addition to being a growing community of inclusion to rally against the negativity in the world over the course of recent years.
His participation in Dungeons & Dragons -- and similar RPGs -- is an effort to continue inclusivity, while leaning strongly into his performative background. This dovetails with the idea of teaching new players how to come to the game rather than excluding or separation tactics. It is an ongoing effort to allow anyone to fly their geek flag, regardless of gender, race, color or creed.
Patrick has joined the online/in-person Gaming crew known as CAST PARTY as one of their for-hire Game Masters, offering online D&D games for interested players of any experience level.

*D&D 4th Edition
*D&D 5th Edition
*MARVEL SUPERHEROES RPG

*ALIEN : the Roleplaying Game System
*Roll20 game system
ALIEN: THE ROLEPLAYING GAME was a brand new system released by Free League in late 2019. Slices & Dices has begun to play the game on their channel, and that video collection has garnered over 27,000 views since launching in July 2020. Patrick is a recurring player in this growing adventure as S&D becomes the Highest-Viewing channel to play the game since it launched !
Slices & Dices first joined in the fray with a one-shot event, called "Hope's Last Day", centered around the wildly popular second film in the Alien franchise.
In the fall of 2020, Free League published a second ALIEN:RPG book, entitled "Destroyer of Worlds" set in all new locations. The Slices & Dices team reunited with the same players, but all new marines, to take down the extraterrestrial threat...
Starting in June 2021, the Slices & Dices channel has launched a full campaign set in the Alien universe! This new adventure is still ongoing--- and you can start the adventure below:
