You don’t need to be plugged in to enjoy retro gaming! The Tabletop Gaming area will have all kinds of old-school activities, like pen & paper role playing and board games! Check out some of the events being run by our dedicated tabletop crew:
The Force Awakens Beginner Game
Leap into a galaxy far, far away with the Force Awakens tabletop game! Set just before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, navigate the dangers of the desert planet Jakku and uncover a rising threat to the galaxy. Take the role of an ace pilot, hardened soldier, canny explorer, or diplomatic colonist and face the might of the First Order with your group!
No prior experience is needed to play, and everything you need will be provided at the table!
Learn Dungeons & Dragons
Learn how to play one of the world’s most popular pen and paper roleplaying games! Step into the shoes of a hero and work as a team to overcome deadly monsters and devious traps. Choose from a variety of character classes with a variety of different strengths; go toe-to-toe with your foes as a mighty Fighter or Barbarian, unleash devastating magic as a Wizard or Warlock, keep your party healed with the divine magic of a Cleric, bring down beasts with flawless arrow shots as a Ranger, transform into a deadly forest creatures as a Druid, and more!
Dice, pencils, and pre-made characters will all be provided, and no previous tabletop experience is needed besides your interest and politeness to your fellow players! Our Dungeon Masters running the adventure for you will go through the rules of the game and are happy to answer any questions you may have during the game.
The adventure should take about two hours. To sign up, head over to our Dungeons and Dragons/Call of Cthulhu tables in the tabletop area and write your name on the clipboard. Each session has room for 5 players, and opens one hour before that session begins. (For example, you can sign up for the 1:30 pm session from 12:30 pm onwards). Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Please only sign up if you’re sure you can attend! We will be using 5th edition, the latest version of the Dungeons and Dragons rules.
Call of Cthulhu
Uncover unfathomable horrors in the Call of Cthulhu Horror Roleplaying Game! Players take the role of brave investigators who must survive deadly encounters with the supernatural. Can your group discover the truth and make it out alive and sane? Join us for a tense, immersive horror experience!
Playing as normal, everyday people, your group must rely on their judgement and teamwork to survive against overwhelming threats. Every problem can’t be solved by combat; oftentimes, even firearms will do nothing against the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos.
The session should take about two and a half hours. No experience is needed to play, and all materials needed will be provided. Registration opens on Saturday at 5:30 pm! Sign up at the clipboard at the Dungeons and Dragons/Call of Cthulhu tables in our tabletop area. Each table can run a game for 5 people; please only sign up if you’re sure you can attend! We will be using the 6th edition rules for the game.
