A Song of Ice and Fire LEAGUE @ Mayfair
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.

League Prizes
Prizes for this league will come from the Season 2 Game Night Kit, including:

  • Alternate sculpt Conscript miniatures
  • Alternate sculpt Spearwives miniatures
  • Night’s Watch dice bags
  • Free Folk dice bags
  • Night’s Watch measuring sticks
  • Free Folk measuring sticks

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.

RPG Roulette: Wield @ Mayfair

Welcome to Wield, a fantasy roleplaying game where you play an ancient, powerful weapon and the heroes you “wield” are merely disposable hit points.

New players are always welcome! We’ll be starting with brand new weapons and covering the basics of the game before we begin.

About the Game

Tales of “willful weapons” are rife in fantasy literature, and now, here is your chance to play one.

Create your weapon, select the powers you’ll be able to grant your wielders, and become the all-powerful artifact you were always meant to be.

Join us for this learn-to-play event, and play the upcoming game of decisions and deceit: Principle Dilemma

We’ll be running demos of this thoughtful and hilarious game between 1:00PM and 3:00PM, so stop in anytime!

About Principle Dilemma
Principle Dilemma is an intellectual card game which aims to give each player the opportunity to use their creative thinking and moral compass to delve deeper into their own minds, thoughts, and discomforts, as well as those of their opponents.

Make tough ethical decisions, and play Deceit cards to make other players’ reconsider the decisions they’ve made.

Every game ends with the same two results:

  1. The players learned something about themselves, and something about those they were playing with.
  2. They couldn’t wait to play again.
