Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm

Frostgrave, Malifaux, Wild West Exodus, Wreck Age, Arena Rex, and more!

Pack your favorite miniatures games, and join us for this weekly casual gaming event.

All miniatures games are welcome, and we’ve already got players interested in a wide variety of games.

What do we play?

First Monday of each Month: Frostgrave
Second Mondays: Malifaux / Wild West Exodus
Third Mondays: Wreck Age
Fourth Mondays: Kill Team / Arena Rex

New players welcome!
If you’ve never played a miniatures game, or you’re looking to try a new one, don’t hesitate to join us! Our players have more miniatures than they know what to do with, and they’re always happy to walk someone through a new game, or welcome a new player to the hobby as a whole.

 

We’ll see you out on the tables!

 

Dungeons & Dragons (Casual Play) @ North Shore
Jun 24 @ 6:00 pm

Join our Monday night dungeon master for a Dungeons & Dragons campaign with old school flavor!

This campaign uses the 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons system and will take place in the world of Faerun.

Players will gather on a weekly basis (as they’re available) to tell a collaborative story, full of adventure, intrigue – and of course, dice.

We’ll see you on the tables!

From the Dungeon Master:
“I’m a friendly DM (not trying to kill characters) open to players of all experiences. I like to create a safe space for less hardcore players to be creative with their characters.”

New to KeyForge?

KeyForge is the first-ever “Unique Deck Game,” meaning each of the game’s pre-built decks is completely one-of-a-kind among over 104 quadrillion possibilities.
 
When you sit down to play a game of KeyForge, you and your opponent will assume the roles of a mighty Archons with their own unique name and symbol. Your path to victory is to gather Æmber, forge three keys and unlock one of the Crucible’s hidden vaults!
A Song of Ice and Fire LEAGUE @ Mayfair
Jun 25 @ 6:00 pm

Lords of Westeros! Gather your bannermen and launch your campaign for the Iron Throne!

Join us on Tuesday nights for this casual 5-week league. Games will be played at 40 points, and your scenarios will be predetermined.

*When you pay your $10 league entry fee, you will receive 400 MVP points, which may be used for entry to the remaining four weeks of league.

At the start of league, you will receive your league pairings with the other players and scenario for each “week.” It is up to players to set up their games—Tuesdays are the designated league night, but games can be arranged for other days as well.

League Prizes
Prizes for this league will come from the Season 2 Game Night Kit, including:

  • Alternate sculpt Conscript miniatures
  • Alternate sculpt Spearwives miniatures
  • Night’s Watch dice bags
  • Free Folk dice bags
  • Night’s Watch measuring sticks
  • Free Folk measuring sticks

Additional Notes

Players can change their army list between matches, but must play the same army for the league’s duration. For example, you can’t play Night’s Watch week 1 and switch to Starks week 2.

“Week” is a loose term in this league as it is understood that it is summer. Games are allowed to be played outside of the scheduled league day and week if necessary. Games should be played at the Mayfair location, but you may arrange a game at another Board Game Barrister location if your opponent agrees.

Legal units for the league are the units in War Council. If there are releases during league and they are in the app they will be considered legal the week of release. There are no proxy models.
