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.

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (EVENT FULL) @ Greenfield
Aug 25 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This seating cap for this event has been reached. Stay tuned for future D&D for Kids events with our incredible Dungeon Master, Chris!

 

Welcome to Barristerberg Adventurers Academy!

This mythical and magical place is where young adventurers begin their journeys and build lifelong knowledge of how to be a great Dungeons & Dragons player.

Dungeons & Dragons isn’t just about tracking statistics and defeating imaginary dragons. The real fun of the game is in telling a communal story, cheering when your teamwork pays off, and laughing when everything goes wonky.

 

About your Dungeon Master
Chris has been playing Dungeons & Dragons and other tabletop roleplaying games since 1981. For many years, he has run events in Board Game Barrister stores, at official conventions, and at home. Chris has published several pieces in third-party roleplaying books and has written numerous adventures and campaigns.

Arkham Horror LCG: The Blob the Ate Everything @ Greenfield
Sep 8 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

First the meteorite crashed in town. Then the government came and quarantined the area. Last night, the creature hatched and started eating everything. And I do mean everything…

Can the investigators figure out what’s going on and defeat the Blob before they are eaten, too?

Join us for this year’s special Arkham Horror LCG group scenario, featured at Gen Con 2019!

Basic Rules Knowledge Preferred
Because this is a timed group event, we suggest that players have at least a basic understanding of the Arkham Horror LCG rules and mechanics.

BYO Investigator Deck
Pre-build the investigator deck of your choice, and bring that deck along with your game tokens (health/horror/clue/etc)

If you don’t have a deck to bring, we will have a limited number of pre-built decks available.
