RPG Roulette: Dread @ Mayfair
Oct 31 @ 6:00 pm

We’re breaking out the Jenga tower for a night of DREAD!

Dive into a high-tension horror story told by your game master, Theo, 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 face, in accordance with Mayfair Mall and store policies.

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

Learn-to-Play: Tiny Towns & Cartographers @ Mayfair
Nov 2 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join us for great Learn-to-Play weekends in November!

This time is Tiny Towns and Cartographers.

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

More about Tiny Towns
You are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. 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. When you’re the active player, you select a resource for everyone to place next, but when the next player goes, they’ll be selecting what you place next.

More about Cartographers
Queen Gimnax has ordered the reclamation of the northern lands. As a cartographer in her service, you are sent to map this territory, claiming it for the Kingdom of Nalos.  In Cartographers, players compete to earn the most reputation stars by the time four seasons have passed. Each season, players draw on their map sheets and earn reputation by carrying out the queen’s edicts before the season is over. The player with the most reputation stars at the end of winter wins.

More about Bubble Tea
Welcome to the most popular bubble tea shop in Taiwan where you’ll find drinks flavored like rich milk tea with a chewy texture and unforgettable good taste! In Bubble Tea, each player has two cards called cups and nine bubble tea ingredient cards. One player uses the shaker to shake out which ingredients will be needed this game, and whoever assembles these ingredients the quickest wins the game and gets the rewards! To make an unforgettable bubble tea, you need to pay attention to crucial elements like having more bubbles and less sugar; even your method for adding ice will make the drink taste differently.

More about The Tea Dragon Society
Discover the ancient art form of Tea Dragon care-taking within The Tea Dragon Society Card Game, based on the graphic novel The Tea Dragon Society. Create a bond between yourself and your Tea Dragon that grows as you progress through the seasons, creating memories to share forever. Each player’s deck represents their own Tea Dragon. From turn to turn, players choose to draw a card — triggering effects and strengthening their position — or buy a card, improving their deck or scoring points.

Learn-to-Play: Fairy Tile & Photosynthesis @ Mayfair
Nov 24 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for great Learn-to-Play weekends in November!

This time is Fairy Tile & Photosynthesis.

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

Fairy Tile
Welcome to Fairy Tile, a kingdom of magical lands where a daring Princess, a devoted Knight, and a dreadful Dragon roam looking for adventure. They need your help to discover the kingdom and tell their epic tale! Develop the kingdom of Fairy Tile by putting new land tiles in play and moving the Princess, Knight, and Dragon across different places such as mountains, forests, and plains. Help them have extraordinary adventures by accomplishing objectives written on the pages of your book. Be the first to read all the pages of your book to win the game.

Photosynthesis
The sun shines brightly on the canopy of the forest, and the trees use this wonderful energy to grow and develop their beautiful foliage. Plant and grow new seedlings wisely and position the shadows of your growing trees to slow your opponents down—but don’t forget that the sun revolves around the forest and that shade might swing back the other way soon enough.

Each turn in Photosynthesis, the sun will revolve 60° of the way around the hexagonal board and provide sunlight to all of the trees that are not in the shade of the trees in front of them. Each player will then have a chance to spend their sunlight, planting seeds and growing trees in preparation for next turn’s revolution!
