Dungeons & Dragons (Casual Group) @ North Shore
Jan 26 @ 12:00 pm

Join us for a bi-weekly Dungeons & Dragons campaign!

Create a character, prepare to combat great threats, and dive into your own unique story in this massively popular roleplaying game! D&D is as much a game of collective storytelling and memorable moments as it is about slaying dragons and collecting loot.

Your Dungeon Master, Larry, will guide you through this open-world adventure campaign. Larry has been DMing for many years, but is relatively new to Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, so this is a fantastic group for new and casual players.

New players welcome!
Players with little or no experience with Dungeons & Dragons are welcome at this event. Your Dungeon Master is available to provide guidance and answer questions during the event. Players are encouraged to bring their own dice, but no materials are necessary in order to join!

Limited Seating—Arrive Early
This event’s seating is limited. We suggest arriving 30-45 minutes prior to the event’s start time each week in order to give yourself a better chance to play in the event.

Miniature Painting Sundays @ Greenfield
Jan 26 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Paint miniatures in the company of others—and make use our supplies!

  • Bring a project to work on, or browse for one on the shelves when you arrive.
  • Exchange advice with other minis painters of all skill levels.
  • Come and go as you please. Feel free to stay for an hour one week and four hours the next!

We supply: Brushes, paints, pallets, paper towel, water cups, and primer upon request.

When done for the day, painters are asked to clean their brushes and pallets, and empty their water cups.

Any miniature priming will need to be done outside the store. In extreme warm or cold weather, we suggest priming miniatures at home beforehand, and in a well-ventilated area.

We’ll see you on Sundays!

 

Torg Eternity @ North Shore
Jan 26 @ 1:00 pm

Later today, earlier tomorrow, sometime next week, the world began to end. The invaders came, causing mass destruction simultaneously across the world and changing parts of the world into “somewhere else.”

Join us for Torg Eternity!

For the first ten sessions, jump in as a pregenerated character that happens to be at these invasion sites (America, England, Japan, Russia, Egypt, France, and India). You’ll do you best to not only survive but also figure out what is happening. After that, you’ll take what you’ve learned and build your own character in an attempt to save Core Earth.

New Players Welcome!
Your Game Master, Dominick, will be available to provide guidance and answer questions during gameplay. No materials necessary!

 

Commander at the Pub @ Oak & Shield Pub
Jan 26 @ 3:00 pm

Join us for a casual Commander format Magic: the Gathering event—Sunday afternoons at Oak & Shield Pub!

Upon arriving, you’ll be given a pod of players to join, and settle in for an afternoon of legendary creatures, unforgettable plays, and free-for-all fun!

Then, for anyone who wants to play more games, we’ll break into new pods and do it all over again!

One Drink/Appetizer Minimum Per Person
We’re proud to host public gaming events in our pub, and to offer free admission to those events.
Please help us continue to run these events with a minimum order of one drink or appetizer.
Event minimum orders are subject to an 18% gratuity. Find out more.

New to Commander?
You’re welcome to join us! The Commander format, also known as Elder Dragon Highlander (EDH) is a casual Magic format featuring some truly unique deckbuilding options.

In Commander, each player chooses a legendary creature as the commander of their deck. They then play with a 99-card deck that contains only cards of their commander’s colors. Also, other than basic lands, each deck can only use one copy of any card. During the game, you can cast your commander multiple times, meaning your favorite Legendary Creature can come back again and again to lead the charge as you battle for victory!
