Demo Day: Tiny Towns @ Greenfield
Apr 28 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Learn a new game at this free learn-to-play event!

Our event runner, Will, will be running demos of Tiny Towns from 11AM to 4PM, so stop in anytime and give the game a try.

About Tiny Towns
You are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest in which the smaller creatures of the woods have created a civilization hidden away from predators. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. Cleverly plan and construct a thriving town, and don’t let it fill up with wasted resources! Whoever builds the most prosperous tiny town wins!

In Tiny Towns, your town is represented by a 4×4 grid on which you will place resource cubes in specific layouts to construct buildings. Each building scores victory points (VPs) in a unique way. When no player can place any more resources or construct any buildings, the game ends, and any squares without a building are worth -1 VP. The player with the most VP wins!

Battletech: Learn-to-Play @ Mayfair
May 11 @ 2:00 pm

Climb inside the giant fighting machines of the 31st century. Veteran mechwarrior Barrister Glenn will be taking you through your first battle in this world of constant warfare.

About the Game
The BattleTech board game simulates combat between various military vehicles in the thirty-first century. The king of the battlefield is the BattleMech, but a myriad of other military units bring additional fun to any game, from combat vehicles to infantry to aerospace units and more.

BattleTech is much more than a board game, set amidst a vibrant fictional universe and the valiant struggles of its dynamic human characters.

Learn-to-Play: WreckAge @ Mayfair
May 26 @ 12:00 pm

The world has ended, how no longer matters. You are a survivor, a scavenger, a raider, a settler. Life is a constant struggle to survive in this post apocalyptic skirmish miniatures game.

Learn-to-Play Event
Players of all experience levels are welcome to join in, learn the game, and play a game or two.

All necessary materials will be provided.

About WreckAge
Two hundred years ago, the worlds’ rich and powerful left the planet in a mass Exodus. However, this grand plan didn’t include everyone, and society collapsed in the vacuum.

Now, for the first time in centuries, those left behind take their first baby steps from the culling of previous generations. There’s finally hope, finally something to fight for. Crops are starting to grow and populations are booming. In this burgeoning wasteland, various factions vie for power and resources. There are vast troves of wealth out in The Wilds for those willing to take the risks to obtain them.

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.

  • Alternate sculpt Spearwives miniatures
  • Night’s Watch dice bags

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.
