KeyForge League @ Greenfield
Jan 8 @ 6:00 pm

Welcome to KeyForge League!

Over the course of this 5-week league, you’ll have a chance to play many different Archon decks—one deck for each player in the league. Your $10 entry will add one Archon deck to the League Pool, and you’ll be given game pairings that enable you to play every deck in the pool.

League Games
Refer to your League Pairings to determine who your opponent is while you play each deck.

For example, a line on your League Pairings might read: “Play Deck #1 vs John Smyth Deck #4.” In this case, John will also have a matching pairing to play Deck #4 against you.

It’s up to you to organize when to play these games. We suggest coming to as many League Tuesdays as possible—and letting most of your games fall into your lap—but your games can also be played on other days of the week. Join our Facebook Group for a great way to set up games with your opponents.

All League games must be played at Board Game Barrister—Greenfield.

League Prizes: Selecting your Archon Deck
At the conclusion of the League, you’ll have an opportunity to submit your deck preferences. In order of standings, we’ll fulfill those preferences as best as we’re able.

Everyone takes home an Archon deck for participating in League!

Open Gaming
League entry will grant you time in the event space on the day you sign up. On any other days you play, normal weekly play fees (100 MVP points or $3) will apply.

Dungeons & Dragons—New Groups (First Session) @ Mayfair
Jan 9 @ 6:00 pm

Get in while the getting’s good! We’re starting THREE new D&D tables with “zero sessions” where we’ll get to know one another, create characters, and set the scene for the adventure to come.

If you’re new to the game, or if you’ve been looking for a regular D&D group, this is the perfect opportunity to get started.

After Week One, your group will continue meeting on Wednesday nights, so we hope you can join us again sometime—or even every week!

More about D&D Wednesdays at Mayfair
This ongoing weekly campaign is open to players of all experience levels. With the guidance of your knowledgeable Dungeon Master, you’ll go on great quests, explore deep caverns and distant landscapes, and share a few laughs along the way.

New players are always welcome! We understand that players will come and go as this campaign continues, and we are happy to accommodate a shifting group of players each week.

Dungeons & Dragons for Kids! (Class) @ Greenfield
Jan 13 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

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.

 

Class Event
This D&D “class” will prepare young players to join in on any of our D&D for Kids adventures in the future.

Stick around for a same-day adventure at 4:00PM, January 13!

Tier 1 Event
This “Tier 1” event will focus solely on the fundamentals of Dungeons & Dragons gameplay. Participants will learn the essentials of:

  • Choosing an adventuring class and race (elf, dwarf, gnome, human, etc) for their character;
  • Listening to descriptions of the story world and making choices for their characters;
  • Interacting with the Dungeon Master’s story world and the characters it contains;
  • Basic rules of adventuring and fighting (Example: Roll a die and add your attack value to see if you hit this goblin);
  • Acting in turn so that the whole group participates.

A “trimmed” portion of the Dungeons & Dragons rules will be used during this gameplay session. To continue learning the complete D&D ruleset, also join us for our Tier 2 and Tier 3 events.
