Miniature Painting Sundays @ Greenfield
Dec 16 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Paint miniatures in the company of others—and make use our supplies!

  • Bring a project to work on, or browse for one on the shelves when you arrive.
  • Exchange advice with other minis painters of all skill levels.
  • Come and go as you please. Feel free to stay for an hour one week and four hours the next!

We supply: Brushes, paints, pallets, paper towel, water cups, and primer upon request.

When done for the day, painters are asked to clean their brushes and pallets, and empty their water cups.

Any miniature priming will need to be done outside the store. In extreme warm or cold weather, we suggest priming miniatures at home beforehand, and in a well-ventilated area.

We’ll see you on Sundays!

 

KeyForge Casual Play @ Mayfair
Dec 16 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Get in some weekly KeyForge, every Sunday at our Mayfair location. Stop in any time between 2pm and 6pm to meet up with other local players and get in some games with your favorite decks!

 
This event will feature open play, and will be the regular meeting night for organized play events and leagues.
 
 
New to KeyForge?
KeyForge is the first-ever “Unique Deck Game,” meaning each of the game’s pre-built decks has been mathematically crafted to be completely one-of-a-kind among over 104 quadrillion possibilities.
 
Decks never change, so the real challenge of the game is to master your knowledge of the cards and outplay your opponent.
 
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!
Commander at the Pub @ Oak & Shield Pub
Dec 16 @ 3:00 pm

Join us for a casual Commander format Magic: the Gathering event—Sunday afternoons at Oak & Shield Pub!

Upon arriving, you’ll be given a pod of players to join, and settle in for an afternoon of legendary creatures, unforgettable plays, and free-for-all fun!

Then, for anyone who wants to play more games, we’ll break into new pods and do it all over again!

New to Commander?
You’re welcome to join us! The Commander format, also known as Elder Dragon Highlander (EDH) is a casual Magic format featuring some truly unique deckbuilding options.

In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (Adventure) @ Greenfield
Dec 16 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Your training is complete and it’s time to begin your life of action and adventure in Dungeons & Dragons!

Together, we’ll tell an amazing story about your character’s heroic choices and amazing quests. All game materials will be provided, but players wishing to bring their own dice or a miniature representing their hero may do so.

Important:
Players in our Adventure events will first want to attend one of our D&D for Kids Class events.

 

Adventure Event
This D&D “adventure” will allow young players to use the knowledge they learned in the academy to tell a story as a group and accomplish great deeds!

Tier 1 Event
This “Tier 1” event will focus solely on the fundamentals of Dungeons & Dragons gameplay. Participants will utilize the essentials of:

  • Listening to descriptions of the story world and making choices for their characters;
  • Interacting with the Dungeon Master’s story world and the characters it contains;
  • Basic rules of adventuring and fighting (Example: Roll a die and add your attack value to see if you hit this goblin);
  • Acting in turn so that the whole group participates.

A “trimmed” portion of the Dungeons & Dragons rules will be used during this gameplay session. To continue learning the complete D&D ruleset, also join us for our future Tier 2 and Tier 3 events.
