Postponed: No D&D Kids’ Table This Week @ North Shore
Aug 3 @ 3:00 pm

POSTPONED: Due to a special event in our event space, as well the unavailability of our usual DM David, we will NOT host a Kids’ Table for Dungeons & Dragons this week, August 3, 2019.

Thank you for your understanding, and we’ll see you next week!

 

 

At this 15-and-younger table, our local youngsters have a place to adventure with others their age and pursue their characters’ wildest whims.

Your Dungeon Masters, David and Erik, started this table to give kids a place to express themselves without worrying about whether adults will think they’re playing “wrong.” There is no wrong way to play D&D—it’s all about telling a great, hilarious story and growing with your characters!

Parents Welcome to Join!
Any player who can follow the rules of our event space is welcome to play without supervision, but parents are also welcome to play at the kids’ table in their weekly adventures, or jump into Adventurers League for the week.

D&D Competitive Adventurers League—Return to the Ghost Tower of Inverness @ North Shore
Aug 17 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us on August 17 for a competitive Adventurers League event!

Signups start at 2:30PM.

Return to the Ghost Tower of Inverness
This is a familiar scene. Shackled. Bound. The same faces surround you as the last time you were in this dark, dank cell. Your friends, your party members. You’ve been told that your actions have led to death and destruction near and far, but you were only doing what was demanded of you from those who hold you captive again now. A looming figure goes over your crimes and holds out a glowing gemstone, offering a trade for your lives. “You must undo what you have done and put this back,” he whispers. “You must return to the Ghost Tower.”

This is a Four‐Hour Competitive Adventure

This event will replace our standard Adventurers League play for the day.

As a participant, you will be assigned to one of three 4-player parties.

Use of Pregenerated Characters will be required, and they will be supplied.

POSTPONED: Dungeons & Dragons (Casual Homebrew) @ North Shore
Aug 17 @ 5:30 pm

Due to a special event taking place in our event space, we will not host our usual bi-weekly evening Dungeons & Dragons table.

We appreciate your patience, and we’ll see you again in two weeks!

 

Join us for a bi-weekly Dungeons & Dragons campaign!

Create a character, prepare to combat great threats, and dive into your own unique story in this massively popular roleplaying game! D&D is as much as game of collective storytelling and memorable moments as it is about slaying dragons and collecting loot.

This story will be taking place in Upaven, a world filled to the gills with adventure. The first place the players will see is Teldras, The Home Of Forests.

Your Dungeon Master, Justin, will guide you through this open-world adventure campaign, welcoming all players new and old to a fantastic world.

New players welcome!
Players with little or no experience with Dungeons & Dragons are welcome at this event. Your Dungeon Master is available to provide guidance and answer questions during the event. No materials necessary!

Sealed Deck Academy—Prerelease Prep for Learning Players @ North Shore
Feb 7 @ 6:30 pm

Welcome to Sealed Deck Academy!

This hands-on, instructor led event prepares Magic learners and kids to build amazing decks and win more games at Prereleases and other Sealed Format events.

No cards, materials, or Sealed Format experience required!

Build a new deck at each Academy!
As an attendee of this Sealed Deck Academy, you will receive six booster packs of Core Set 2020 as well as invaluable instruction on how to turn that assortment of cards into a powerful Magic deck.

Using the tips and skills you discover at the Academy, you’ll be able to determine:

  • What makes a great “bomb” card;
  • Which colors to choose from your pool of cards;
  • How and when to create card combos;
  • How to fill out your mana curve so that you’ll be able to use all your mana every turn;
  • And much more!

Your instructor, Taylor, is a Sealed pro who has been achieving perfect win-loss records in his last five years of prerelease events. An excellent teacher as well as Magic player, he makes great deckbuilding fun and easy to understand.

Sealed format is fantastic for everyone because it creates an even playing field. Everyone is working with new cards; no one gets to bring the unbeatable deck they’ve been building for years.

What is Sealed Format?
In Sealed Format events, players will open six booster packs each, and from the contents of those packs, build a deck of at least 40 cards. Then, we pair everyone with an opponent to play some best-of-three matches using our newly built decks!

Each session, we’ll also have promo card prizes for some lucky participants.

Event Schedule
Registration: 6:10PM-6:30PM
Academy Discussion: 6:30PM-7:15PM
Deckbuilding Practice: 7:00PM-8:00PM
Two Paired Matches: 8:00PM-10:00PM

What to know ahead of time
This event is suggested for kids and Magic learners who already know the basic rules of Magic. If you’ve never played a game of Magic before, we suggest stopping into the store and asking for a walk-through from one of our Barristers. (Better yet, if you call ahead, we can let you know whether we’ll have time to take you through a full tutorial.)

Want to keep improving?
Stop in for another Academy session! Each session will present you with six new packs, more opportunity to practice, and a new deckbuilding puzzle to solve.
