Munchkin is a satirical card game based on the clichés and oddities of Dungeons and Dragons and other role-playing games. Each player starts at level 1 and the winner is the first player to reach level 10. Players can acquire familiar D&D style character classes during the game which determine to some extent the cards they can play.

There are two types of cards – treasure and encounters. Each turn the current players ‘kicks down the door’ – drawing an encounter card from the deck. Usually this will involve battling a monster. Monsters have their own levels and players must try and overcome it using the levels, weapons and powers they have acquired during the game or run away. Other players can chose to help the player or hinder by adding extra monsters to the encounter. Defeating a monster will usually result in drawing treasure cards and acquiring levels. Being defeated by a monster results in “bad stuff” which usually involves losing levels and treasure.

Now you’re back, and what better way to celebrate your most recent victory than to spend an evening at the Red Dragon Inn. You and your adventuring companions will spend the night drinking, gambling, and roughhousing. The last person who is both sober enough to remain conscious and shrewd enough to hold onto his Gold Coins wins the game.”

1:30 – 4:30 PM Learn to Play Star Wars RPG ($5).  Jump right into the action and see how the Star Wars RPG works.  Will you be Force sensitive, or are you on the run from the Hutts?  Are you part of the Rebellion, or just trying to stay on the down low and make some galactic cash?  So many possibilities!  Limited spots, sign up in advance on our Meetup site.

5:00 – 6:30 PM  Dungeons and Dragons Character Creation Workshop (free).  Need help creating a new character?  Too many choices, or confused by the process?  Let our experienced players guide you through the steps to creating the character perfect for your game objectives and play style!  Bring your Player’s Handbook if you have one.  Meeples Games will provide character sheets for your use.

7:00 – 9:00 PM Game Master / Dungeon Master Workshop (Learn to be a DM) (free).  The Game Master / Dungeon Master calls the shots.  They know what’s coming and can either help you out or set you up to fail.  They plan the adventure and guide the game.  Is there a trap door at the entrance to that tunnel?  Does the Ankeg get you in her jaws?  Do you find a Bag of Holding? The Game Master brings the story telling, the excitement, and sets the tone for awesome gaming sessions.  Whether you are new to the game or experienced, come share ideas, see how others lead their groups, and find out more about what it takes and how to get started being a Game Master (GM) / Dungeon Master (DM) at this fun workshop!

What We’re Playing

by: on August 25, 2016  |   (Leave a reply)

There are some fantastic new games out this summer and there are two that we’ve been really enjoying.

Junk Art – Pretzel Games

Junk Art came out just yesterday and we’ve been playing all day!  First of all, the pieces are high quality painted wooden building blocks of multiple colors and shapes.  And it comes in a wonderful slide-lid wooden box.  I’ll give it 5 Meeples for the quality pieces alone.

The game play is very unique.  You are an artist who makes art out of junk and you are traveling the world trying to make the best art.  Each city (indicated by a card) has different set up requirements, play methods and win conditions and so the game is always fresh.  In game play, you get cards that dictate what pieces you need to add to your sculpture.  One of my favorite things about the game is that often you are giving and getting cards from other players.  So there’s some strategy around what to keep and what to pass to whom.

This is a great party dexterity game.  We’ve added one to our game library, so come check it out.

Legendary Encounters Firefly – Upper Deck

This game is just fantastic.  If you’re a fan of Firefly, you’re going to just love it.  It’s a twist on a deckbuilding game in which you play characters from the television series working together to make it through the episodes of the show.  In a game session, you play through three episodes trying to meet all of the objectives, keep your characters alive and Serenity flyin’.  The art is really good and the ‘feel’ of the game is pure Firefly.  And, in classic Legendary style, the board is a long roll-up playmat with space for everything.  Give this game a try!
