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.

An Evening of Dread @ North Shore
Oct 31 @ 6:00 pm

We’re breaking out the Jenga tower for our second annual Dread game played on Halloween!

Last year, the group successfully survived an electrifying mystery at an asylum… who knows what dark depths this year will explore. Join us for a frightfully good time!

More about Dread
Dive into a high-tension horror story told by your game master, Erik, and push the story ahead with the actions of your characters. Every time you find yourself in a perilous moment, you’ll need to successfully pull a block from the Jenga tower—or meet your final fate!

If you haven’t experienced the pure, high-tension elegance of the Dread RPG, then we hope you’ll join us on Halloween night.

And by all means, help us celebrate the spookiest night of the year by coming in *costume!

*For the best and safest in-store experience, we ask that participants not wear masks or headwear covering the full face.

X-Wing: Aces High Event @ North Shore
Nov 21 @ 5:30 pm

Join us for FFG’s Aces High Event. Battle against your opponents in a single free-for-all match, and seek to be the best Ace!

Registration: 5:00pm – 5:45pm
Event Start: 6:00pm

Format & Squadbuilding
Players will fly only a single ship, up to 80pts.
Free-for-All Match
Aim to get the most points before the end of the 75 minute round.

Points are scored for the following:

  • First Hit:​ After a ship performs an attack, if the defender was at full health and suffered damage, the attacking ship’s player scores 1 point.
  • Shot Confirmed:​ After a ship performs an attack, if the defender was destroyed, the attacking ship’s player scores 2 victory points plus all victory points on the defender’s ship card (remove them from the defender’s ship card when they are scored.) Then place 1 victory point token on the attacking ship’s card.
  • Stay in the Fight:​ If a ship flees, remove all victory points from its ship card. Its player loses 1 victory point plus victory points equal to the number of victory points removed this way.

Special Rule—Restore Ships (Start of Round): ​Starting with the first player, each player with no ship in play rolls 1 attack die, and then restores their destroyed ship, placing it back in play with its rear guides at any position on one of the hyperspace points matching the symbol rolled. If it cannot be placed this way at any of the matching positions without overlapping another ship, that ship’s player places it anywhere in the play area at range 0 of a board edge (not overlapping another ship) instead.

Event Scoring
The player that has scored the most victory points when the 75-minute round ends is the winner.

Event Prizes
Top Scorer—Plastic dual-sided card: Rebel R2-D2 Astromech upgrade // Imperial Black Squadron Pilot
Participation—Your choice of promo: Extended Art U-wing OR Proton Rockets

X-Wing: Aces High MK-III @ North Shore
Mar 19 @ 6:00 pm

This is a new take on the FFG Aces Aim High Event. Each player will be battling against one another in a single match and seek to be the best Ace!

Registration: 5:00-5:50PM
Event Start: 6:00PM

Format: Players will form a squadron of fighters all from the same faction with the following point costs:

  • 1 single ship up to 100pts
  • 1 single ship up to 80pts
  • 1 single ship up to 60pts
  • 1 single ship up to 40pts

When a ship is destroyed that ship is removed for the rest of the game. Instead they must pick one of their other ships in the squadron. The game ends when 120 minutes has passed OR 1 player has all of their squadron destroyed.

Players are aiming to get the most points before the end of the 120 minute round.

Event Prizes:
Most Points: Plastic Heroic card
All Participants: Extended alt-art of the Bombardment Drone bomber.

Scoring Points:

  • First Hit:​ If a ship at full health suffered damage by an attack, a friendly remote, OR payload upgrade the friendly ship’s player scores 1 point.
  • Shot Confirmed:​ If a ship would be destroyed after an attack, by a friendly remote, OR payload upgrade, the attacking ship’s player scores 2 victory points plus all victory points on the defender’s ship card (remove them from the defender’s ship card when they are scored.) Then place 1 victory point token on the attacking ship’s card.
  • Stay in the Fight:​ If a ship flees, remove all victory points from its ship card. Its player loses 1 victory point plus 1 victory point equal to the number of victory points removed this way.
  • Obstacles: ​If a player’s ship sets a maneuver dial and the controlling player executes a maneuver onto an obstacle and suffers damage to result in losing full-health, the controlling player loses 1 victory point. If a player does the above and results in being destroyed, it is treated as if it was fleeing.
  • Restore Ships (Start of Round): ​Starting with the first player, each player with no ship in play rolls 1 attack die, and then places one of their remaining ships, placing it back in play with its rear guides at any position on one of the hyperspace points matching the symbol rolled. If it cannot be placed this way at any of the matching positions without overlapping another ship, that ship’s player places it anywhere in the play area at range 0 of a board edge (not overlapping another ship) instead.
  • Initiative: ​Every new ship that enters the play area that has the same initiative as other ships will have players draw Numbered ID Tokens and place on their ship card to determine Initiative order until initiative is no longer tied.
  • Scoring:​ Whoever scores the most victory points wins. In case of a tie it breaks in the following order: ○ whoever has lost the fewest ships in their squadron ○ whoever has the most health on their ship at the end of the game ○ final salvo between all tied players.
