RPG Roulette: Home By Dark @ Mayfair
Oct 17 @ 6:00 pm

Fan of Stranger Things or E.T.? How about The Goonies?

Join us for an October of RPG one-shots! This week is Home By Dark, where you’ll play kids, teens, and adults that have discovered a powerful innocent in your small town. You must protect it from nefarious pursuers that want it for their own plans, all the while avoiding the growing danger that threatens the town.

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

More about the Game
Home by Dark is a story game inspired by the resourceful and misunderstood kids of many 80’s films, along with the myriad homage films and series that have come since.  You and your friends help to protect this mysterious secret while insecurities, fears, and latent drama from their own lives will surface and threaten to unravel the whole plan.

RPG Roulette: Zombie World @ Mayfair
Oct 24 @ 6:00 pm

What kind of survivor are you?

Join us for an October of RPG one-shots! This week is Zombie World, where you’ll play survivors fighting against the living and the dead for your own place in the world.

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

More about the Game
Zombie World is a card-based tabletop roleplaying game, where you’ll take on the roles of ordinary people caught up in a zombie apocalypse, struggling to survive day after day, month after month, year after year, in a world destroyed by the restless dead.

Maybe you’re just an accountant who took up a machete to keep her friends and family safe. Maybe you’re an escaped inmate trying to keep your criminal past a secret from your fellow survivors. Maybe you’re a soldier trying to lead and protect your whole enclave in this ruined world.

The game is designed for easy, quick, and intense play.

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.

RPG Roulette: Companions’ Tale @ Mayfair
Nov 7 @ 6:00 pm

“I’ve met the Hero. He and I spent a month traveling together across the frozen north. I set camp, cooked the food, and tried not to get in his way. He was the one that took care of the bandits and wolves that we encountered. He told me he was on his way to gain the Dragon’s blessing, but we parted ways before he did, I’m not even sure if he succeeded, but I know he survived. I’m told he went back to the south and crossed the desert without aid.”

    -The Wanderer

Join us for four weeks of Companions’ Tale, a story game in which you and you fellow players will collectively tell the tale of a mythical hero through the tales (however truthful) told by the companions they meet along the way.

New players are always welcome! Each week, we will start fresh with the tale of a new hero, so feel free to join in any time!

More about Companions’ Tale
Who is the Hero, and what caused a need for them to appear? What is the history of this land, its people, culture, myths. These are the questions that you’ll strive to answer in Companions’ Tale.

Taking on the roles of the Historian, Companion, Witness, Lorekeeper, Cartographer and Biographer, everyone will work together to build and explore a new world. Each role is held by all players, involving everyone in the story of the Hero. No names will be given, and time is not strictly linear. Over Three Acts, the Hero will emerge from the unknown, encounter the disaster that has arisen, and ultimately strive to resolve it. Whether they succeed or fail is in your hands as the player.

RPG Roulette: Threadbare @ Mayfair
Feb 6 @ 6:00 pm

The ragdoll finishes with her stuffed panda patient and wishes him a cheery farewell, tucking his payment (2 buttons and a tiny watch gear) into her skirt pocket. She quickly schools her face to hide her sly, greedy smile when she steps across the threshold to the waiting bulldozer. His repair is going to need glue, and glue is a costly resource, my friend…

Join us for two weeks of Threadbare RPG, a game in which you and your fellow players will play as jury-rigged toys in a broken world.

New players are always welcome! Each week, we’ll review the game’s mechanics as well as where we last left off in the story.

More about Threadbare RPG
Threadbare is a Powered-by-the-Apocalypse role-playing game by Stephanie Bryant. You’ll only need two 6-sided dice to play.

Your character starts out as a Softie (soft-filled toy), a Mekka (hard-shelled, plastic or metal toy), or a Sock (a single sock, often thought to have been lost in the laundry).

As you progress in Threadbare, your character changes. Every time you are damaged and repaired, you change your description and even your personality!
