Game requests are always welcome at games. Space for scheduled events is limited. People can sign up for any block of time to host whatever games they want, no matter how ridiculous. Any open space remaining will allow Open Gaming. The casual format of open gaming has worked well for us in the past, so we’re sticking with it. Thanks for the continued support.

10 am–Dungeons and Dragons for KIDS!! We’ll run this quick and fun event for kids (any age welcome, there is math involved) We will ask that parents participate in this event. The intent of this project is to give kids a taste of what a roleplaying game is. Not intending a long session, so maximum is about two hours. As soon as we have enough interested players, we’ll throw together a game. I’ll have 4 scenarios ready to run with pre-generated characters. Dungeons and Dragons v. 3.5 event. If it develops into a longer game, all the better!
10 am–Dungeons and Dragons 1st Edition–An old woman approaches you in the local tavern. “I need your help great adventurers. Close by is a deep dungeon with great monsters and I need someone who can brave the darkness and danger to retrieve the glittering Orb of Healing to save the town.
