Overview: Tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs) like Dungeons and Dragons ™ offer creative and cooperative gaming experiences whose only limits are the players’ imaginations. Players choose their own adventures as they explore fantastic worlds, confronting epic challenges and unraveling mysteries, working together to solve problems through strategy, skill, cleverness, and collaboration using the unique abilities they and their characters possess. Tabletop gaming promotes reading and math skills, finding creative and team-based solutions, and building social trust and confidence.  This beginner camp is designed to last five days and will cover all the essentials from introductory to the light experienced level of play.

What: Kids will learn the basics of Dungeons and Dragons and Role Playing Games in general.  They’ll learn about Character Creation, exiting in the fantasy world, etiquette, conflict, leveling up, teamwork and getting into character.

Dungeon Master Biography: Jason Nelson is an author, publisher and entrepreneur who has worked in the gaming industry for 14 years, and been playing RPGs since he was 10 years old.  A proud father of three, he has shared his passion and love for gaming with his own children. As a former elementary teacher, he recognized the value of tabletop RPGs for youth and saw the need for more RPG content for all ages, and his company Legendary Games has begun creating a line of introductory products for new and younger gamers.

Dice Masters at Meeples, with League Announcements

by: on June 6, 2017  |  

Here is updated information for new and experienced Dice Masters players!  If you don’t know about Dice Masters, it’s a game of battling teams of heroes and villians, played with cards and dice that roll energy or characters to field for combat.  Using dice-building (new dice are purchased in-game and added to your dice bag), there is deep strategy and awesome combined effects during play time.  Games last about 30 minutes, and new booster packs with 2 cards and 2 dice are only $0.99!

Sidekick League – the next event is tomorrow Wednesday June 7 at 6:30.  You don’t need to know or bring anything – our Dice Masters experts will teach you about the game and help you build a team to play some practice matches.  New players will be able to take home a team and cool participation prize!  Experienced players – bring a newbie and get a prize!  No charge.

Exclusion League – The Exclusion League will put players to test building themed teams while excluding the cards on the ban list.  This is a ton of fun and offers really cool prizes (Season 1 top prize was a Rick and Morty playmat!).  See all the details here.

New Batman set! – The new Batman set landed on 5/24 and we are loving the new mechanics:  a DC character with Swarm, Flip cards that can change abilities and affiliation mid-game, Gadgeteers, and more!

Upcoming:  DC Comics Superman & Wonder Woman starter set July 12 release, Guardians of the Galaxy set releases in August, new Organized Play kits every month (now playing Xavier’s School and Batman The Animated Series).
