Milwaukee Chess Wizards @ Oak & Shield Pub
Aug 19 @ 7:00 pm

We’ve never heard a group of people laugh so much while playing chess!

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to play chess, improve your play, or upgrade your tactical arsenal—the Milwaukee Chess Wizards are here for you! Settle in for a great night and meet other local chess players while we duke it out in some fast-paced blitz games.

We’ll be meeting in the downstairs bar area, known as 42 Lounge. We’ll have a few physical boards and clocks available, but please feel free to bring your own sets. If you want a great way to play on your phone, we recommend grabbing the Lichess app as it’s completely free and comes with a bunch of cool features.

We’re proud to host public gaming events in our pub, and to offer free admission to those events.

Drop-In Dungeon Crawl Classics @ Oak & Shield Gaming Pub
Aug 20 @ 6:00 pm

Tuesday, is now the deadliest day of the week at Oak & Shield. Bring your pitchfork and livestock, and charge blindly into an incredibly dangerous dungeon!

Every great Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) campaign begins with a “funnel” or “meat grinder”, in which a small army of level-0 farmers, smiths and rat-catchers head into a full-scale dungeon, with only their cows and cheese wheels to protect them.

Each player controls 2-4 characters, but will anyone survive to make it to First Level and beyond?

New Players Welcome – All Materials Provided
DCC is a silly game, and is an amazing experience for any new player who is looking for a low-stakes RPG romp. Our game master, Christophor, will provide characters and all the materials necessary to play. Players are welcome to bring dice and paper if they wish.

Drop-In Dungeons & Dragons @ Oak & Shield Pub
Aug 20 @ 7:00 pm

Get in on Drop-In D&D every Tuesday! Each week, you’ll explore brand new stories and face off with exciting challenges in the 5th Edition of D&D.

DMs drink for free!*

Each session, your table will feature a different one-shot adventure. Space is very limited, and is first-come first-served.

Please bring one or more pre-built characters for each week’s session. If you do not have a character, or your character is not an appropriate level for the adventure, we will have pre-built characters available for you to use!

We also ask that players have a basic understanding of the rules.
If you have never played D&D before, we suggest learning the ropes at one of the many weekly events at Board Game Barrister locations.

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!
