I have now taught ten day game workshops to nineteen men. April will most likely be the last month I do these. I’m going to be a little mum on my plans since they aren’t finalized yet, but I plan on hitting the road by May.
Here’s some workshop thoughts from a few students:
I’d give the workshop an A+ grade. I liked how easy the system is, and thought Roosh was a great teacher. He explained everything in an easy to understand manner, and then closely watched the approaches, taking good notes so he could give lots of feedback. He uses a casual, “under the radar” style with openers that just sound like natural conversation. Because they are so easy and natural sounding, the openers take only a minimum amount of balls to deliver. Roosh gives you a 100% effort–worth every bit of your money.
The key to tight day game is indirect approaches. Direct game is not game at all, but a roll of the die based on what a girl thinks about your physical appearance.
First of all, I really appreciate how you stayed beyond your planned time, and helped me get started with day game.
I thought entire program was well thought-out and ‘easy to follow’, although actual execution of the routines were rough.
I think the workshop could be improved with additional help beyond ‘opener’ and ‘follow up’…(like when we kept on asking you for possible scenarios after back-and-forth follow up) but then again… I imagine anything beyond is mid-level game, and there would be too many scenarios and factors involved.
The workshop was really worth the cost and time, especially with the idea that “SHE WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE NUMBER, NOT THAT YOU ARE SCHEMING TO GET THAT NUMBER”. That statement and idea really opened my eyes and my attitude towards the game.
When you’re using the material for the first time it will be choppy, though rarely disastrous since the approach is indirect. With practice it will get a lot smoother. Beyond the follow-up I teach the main idea of what you want to do (baiting, rambling), but it is not feasible to memorize conversation. That would be too robotic and unnatural.
My overall experience with the Day Game Workshop was positive. The provided workbook that was extremely helpful and the in depth explanation of the concepts gave me a better understanding of the pick-up techniques that work. Not only did Roosh show me how to successfully approach women during the day, Roosh also made the workshop fun and gave me the motivation I needed to approach women. Of the 15 women I approached during the workshop, I came away two numbers (one of which, I dated today). After the workshop, I even used Roosh’s techniques on the subway to get an additional number from a pair of girls. I am quite satisfied with the the Day Game Workshop and would recommend it to anyone with a desire to learn how to attract women. THANKS ROOSH!
This was one of my most advanced students. His day game learning curve will be short because he was already decent with girls beforehand.
The workshop was great, and more than worth it. It was transformational and helped build my confidence to go out and practice. I actually talked to a woman on the street and used FALNUC and said let’s hang out. I didn’t number close, but I did something I’ve never done before and it honestly made me proud. I’ve been on kind of a high since Sunday. I have been talking to girls and not getting scared to open because I’m so under the radar using some of the lines you taught me as well reframing it that my interest was just not sexual during the day. I’ll write more later this week as I just got back from a date, and I do need your advice moving to the Bang. Your book will probably answer it for me, but I won’t get a chance to read it until this weekend.
FALNUC is an mneumonic I made up for when it’s time to get the number. Each letter stands for something. It’s a bit involved but it increases rapport while reducing the liklihood of a flake.
The workshop lasts about 8 hours, of which roughly the first several are spent going over the theory and the material, and the the remainder is spent in bookshops, grocery stores, clothing stores and other usual places people go to during the day.
Although the material can be pretty dry, things pick up quickly when pickup attempts are made. Roosh has a pretty clear idea of what works and what doesn’t and is an encyclopedia of experience. Perhaps my attention span is too short, but while I found it difficult to absorb the written material, once it was demonstrated in practice a structure was developed and then honed in on.
Roosh does a good job of keeping things fun, humorous, and informative. Overall I would recommend this experience to anyone.
Pros: Asking Roosh all sorts of questions about lots of aspects of the game.
Cons: Sitting for a lecture for several hours is why I go to school.
The most common complaint I have is the initial 2-3 hours where students are listening to me talk. I’m aware of this but I don’t want to put students in tough situations without preparing them beforehand. The material takes time to explain, and it should because it’s not easy. Here’s another comment about that:
I didn’t like the amount of time we spent at Starbucks. We were there for about three hours just looking over your packet. It reminded me of school, and so my mind began to wander. I thought we should have been thrown into the fire immediately. If we had left earlier, we might have seen some hotter women.
As far as you analyzing our approaches, that was the best part of the workshop. The nuggets of information you fed me were very useful.
Overall, it was an experience that has numbed me from the nervousness of approaching.
This student had the type of personality where he liked a challenge, but most guys would be traumatized if “thrown into the fire.” In a perfect world I would give students personality quizzes before the workshop and pair them up with someone like them.
Here are the previous things I’ve written about the workshop:
I teach these on Saturday’s now. If you’re interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “workshop” in the subject.Tweet Follow @rooshv

How can you say that direct game is not game? The game is played in comfort my friend. In day game you have to at some point get to a statement of intent, so you might as well do it right off the bat.
A good confident delivery of a direct opener like “I know this is crazy or whatever, but I just thought you were cute and wanted to meet you” will open more often than you think no matter how you look if your clothes are somewhat cool. It will also get you blown out of sets where you have no chance anyway, saving you time. In the words of Brad P, “Blow me out or blow me.”
Hammer’s last blog post: I want DD.
Day/Direct IS post-comfort. It’s a #close or plans for a d2.
I’ve read a lot on here and it’s pragmatic. Gotta have classroom time/lectures to present fundamentals. 1 hr of lecture can equate to 1 day in field.

Break it down…

Hey roosh, has anyone broken the records yet?
(aka getting 3 numbers and longest set?)
“G: I have a workshop opening later in march. :mrgreen:”
Roosh, I would love to, but its 82°F in Southern California today.
Although, I do like DC Day Game in May.
I would roll up to AU or G-town (great places for Day Game by the way), and spit lightning bolts.

i dont think u can generalize indirect daygame for all races…i highly doubt indirect game working for black women..i could be wrong but i have never been succesful
glad that you’re helping the willing. keep up god’s work :)
Benedict Smith’s last blog post: Sunday Night Death March.
So are you planning a BANG follow-up featuring the Day Game Workshops? This would be most helpful to those of us outside of DC.
Ditto Comment #8.
Yea..I’m kinda interested in seeing the workbook, considering I also don’t live in DC.
I have a few projects queued before a possible workbook. So right now the answer is no.
spaceman: nope. I told you whoever gets 3 is going to keep it.
Yay! Thx for teaching men how to act around women and make them feel good. Women every where appreciate what you are doing (esp. women from certain cultures where dating is a new thing and many guys could use the help). Men are the leaders you know, so they must help themselves -just as women must help themselves too

To shorten the lecture time you might provide your students with the material in advance. Put multiple choice questions at the end of each section. And have them study before they meet you. Even if this doesn’t shorten the time it would definitely increase retention.
Roosh should release his workshop packet in ebook, audio, or dvd form. I’d pay good money for it – he offers some of the best value in this industry today, but I simply can not attend a workshop at this time (not before you quit giving them at least).
I think the biggest issue for the average guy who wants a good girl is overcoming anxiety. A more natural approach and method, like the one Roosh seems to teach, would help us to approach w/ less anxiety and thus more consistently.
Most other popular pickup strategies suggest doing some pretty unnatural approaches that will send your anxiety soaring through the roof (I’m a professional – how comfortable do you think I am running Brad p’s horse girl after work in an elevator?). However, I feel that at least some form of structure is needed to be able to approach immediately, consistently, and with reduced anxiety.
Roosh – Try to release the information in another format please. We’d pay for it, and we understand that it may not be as helpful because the full value lies in you teaching it personally. But a loose, natural structure that has been shown to just help guys get out there and strike up conversations consistently and w/ less awkwardness is what we really need.
Logic: After my second book I’m going to see about adapting the workshop manual to a standalone book.
I’m interested. Any chance you’ll do a workshop in Chicago, LA or SF?
