TUESDAYS ARE INFINITY GAME NIGHTS

We have added Infinity to our Calendars on Tuesday nights.  So be sure to show up for pick-up games as we attempt to grow our Infinity gaming community.  Eventually we will also run leagues and campaigns on Infinity Game Night from time to time.  So join us this Tuesday at 6:00pm!

 

New D&D Starter Sets are Here!

This week, we’re excited for the release of Starter Set products for the newest edition of Dungeons & Dragons.  This kit contains everything you get to get started in the thoroughly playtested and extremely well reviewed new set, and should keep folks excited until the release of the Player’s Handbook in August.  If you’ve participated in our D&D Encounters series, this is the official release of the edition you’ve been beta testing for months.

What’s in the Box?  The new starter set includes a 64-page adventure book with everything the Dungeon Master needs to get started, a 32-page rulebook for playing characters level 1 – 5, 5 pre-generated characters, each with a character sheet and supporting reference material, and 6 dice.

How Much is it?  It’s never been easier to jump into D&D.  This box sells for $23.99 and lets you jump right into the game.

When can I learn more?  Our D&D Encounter series is wrapping up for the summer over the next few sessions and will resume in the fall.  In the mean time, our resident DM and D&D Standard Bearer Tommy will be offering a few Wednesday nights of his time to do demo days of the new system.  Join Tommy on July 23rd and July 30th at 6pm to learn what you need to know to be an expert for Encounters in the fall, or to start your own sessions.
