Demo Day: Tiny Towns @ Greenfield
Apr 28 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

Learn a new game at this free learn-to-play event!

Our event runner, Will, will be running demos of Tiny Towns from 11AM to 4PM, so stop in anytime and give the game a try.

About Tiny Towns
You are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest in which the smaller creatures of the woods have created a civilization hidden away from predators. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. Cleverly plan and construct a thriving town, and don’t let it fill up with wasted resources! Whoever builds the most prosperous tiny town wins!

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. Each building scores victory points (VPs) in a unique way. When no player can place any more resources or construct any buildings, the game ends, and any squares without a building are worth -1 VP. The player with the most VP wins!

International Tabletop Day 2019 @ Bayshore, Greenfield, Mayfair and Oak & Shield
Jun 1 all-day

The Tabletop Day Schedule of Events is Now Live!

Friends, Gamers, Champions—Lend me your dice!

International Tabletop Day draws near! On June 1, gamers across the globe will come together as a community to celebrate and share our passions—by playing more games!

Board Game Barrister is getting in on the fun with an all-day schedule of events and free open gaming for those who want to spend the day exploring our wall of demo games.

So get in on the fun, discover some great new games, and maybe you’ll walk away with some goodies and promos for your favorites.

Tabletop Day at the Pub!
Thanks to the mysterious forces of fate, our Oak & Shield Pub will have been open for 56 weeks without hosting a Tabletop Day. Let’s change that! Oak & Shield will be in full gaming mode with an entire day of events, food, drink, patio games, and more!

 

Call for Event Runners
Bring your passions to the table! This is your chance to spread the love for your favorite games and find folks to play with. Worker placement, deck-building, roleplaying, party games, bluffing, miniatures and social deduction games—whatever you want to play on the international holiday for our favorite hobby!

(Oh, and did I mention? You’ll get MVP points for every game you host!)

Choose one or more games to host from the Tabletop Day games list.

 

Prefer to play games rather than run them?
Brilliant! Playing games is what International Tabletop Day is all about, and we’ll have plenty of event runners looking for players to fill their tables! Stop in and celebrate the tabletop games you love surrounded by your fellow gamers, all day at the Board Game Barrister locations in Bayshore, Greenfield, Mayfair and the Oak & Shield Pub!

Learn-to-Play—Star Wars: Outer Rim @ Greenfield
Jun 29 @ 4:00 pm

“Far from the shadows of Coruscant’s skyscrapers lies the dangerous Outer Rim. To many citizens, the galaxy’s edge represents a hive of scum and villainy that is better left ignored. But to the scoundrels of the galaxy, the Outer Rim represents the opportunity to become a legend.”

Join Barrister Jeremy for this learn-to-play event, and make your mark in the Star Wars galaxy as a smuggler, mercenary, or even a bounty hunter in Outer Rim!

More about Outer Rim
In Outer Rim, you and your fellow players will take on the roles of outlaws on the fringes of society and set out to make your mark on the galaxy. You’ll travel the Outer Rim in your personal ship, hire legendary Star Wars characters to join your crew, and vie to cement your place in the legends of the Star Wars galaxy!

Leap Day: Time-Themed Game Day @ North Shore & Greenfield
Feb 29 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

It only happens every four years, and this year it’s on a weekend!

Celebrate your Leap Day by joining us for some games themed around Time.

New players are always welcome. We’ll go over the rules of each game before we get playing.

Games about time travel, games with time-based mechanics, maybe even just games with timers—any excuse to spend our Leap Day gaming, really.

We’ll see you then!
