Game Day recap: Sept. 15

Another great game day at Osterville Village Library today as we welcomed two new gamers. Wingspan continues to be a popular game as it was up and running on two tables today. We also got Carcassonne out and Sushi Go Party for a fun wrap-up to the afternoon.

Meanwhile, six kids enjoyed D&D Club for Kids. Summer session ends next Sunday and then D&D Club for Kids Autumn Session stars Oct. 6 for six weeks of D&D fun.

Thanks to everyone who came out today. We’ll see you next Sunday the 22nd for more gaming.

Dungeons and Dragons for adults with Reboot Game Lab

Screen Shot 2019-06-29 at 9.02.00 PM.png

Earlier today we played Dungeons and Dragons at our home at Cape Cod Coffee in Mashpee Commons. I have to say it was tremendously fun as eight people joined the adventure. For four hours we explored the secret of Yokotoro Village along the Sword Coast. I don’t want to spoil anything but I’ll say that things were not what they seemed.

If you want to join us for adult D&D, follow us on Meetup, as that’s were we arrange things. We’ll be back next Saturday, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM for more fun.

Never played before? Veteran with a drawer full of characters? This is for you! I provide dice, characters, adventure, and minis (of course, you’re more than welcome to bring your own). I hope to see you at the table soon.

Game day for June 23

Another week of gaming has come and gone. This week we started summer session of D&D Club and had a group of six people play The Reckoners.

In this massive game (we had to push two tables together), you play as humans who have to assassinate the “Epics” who’ve taken over Chicago, now called “Newcago.” There’s a lot of planning, plotting and assassinating. Here are a few photos from today’s epic (see what I did there?) battle.

Dungeons and Dragons for adults

We’ve been running Dungeons and Dragons Club for kids for several months now. What started with three kids has grown to over a dozen, and summer session is about to start. It’s been a lot of fun, and now several of you have asked:

“What about D&D for adults?” We hear you, and we have a plan.

We’d love to host this for you all. After all, beheading kobolds with friends is one of life’s simple pleasers. The challenge right now is location and timing. Let’s start with location.

Currently, we meet every Saturday and Sunday at Cape Cod Coffee in Mashpee Commons (map). It’s a great spot, albeit a little small. We currently run D&D Kids Club there and that plus drop-in gaming really commandeers most of the available space in that tiny cafe.

The next issue is timing. Many of you have asked for evening D&D, and we get it. People typically work during the day and have free time for leisure activities in the evening. The current location closes at 4:00, so there’s that.

Just like a barbarian swinging his battleaxe with a buff of Bardic Inspiration, there is hope.

Soon, Cape Cod Coffee will move to its new, bigger location across the street from the current spot in Mashpee Commons, and we'll be moving with them. The new place will have a full menu, beer, lots of seats and evening hours. When that happens we can have an RPG night, no problem. That’s great, but what about now?

Until then, we’ll offer one-offs at the current location on Saturdays. Bring your own adventure, or I can even DM a one-shot. We can use Meetup to coordinate the who’s, what’s and how’s. I can provide graph paper for maps and minis. You provide the fun.

It’s not perfect I know, but it’s something to tide us over until we're across the street. Let me know if you’re interested, either here in the comments or on Meetup.

Unboxing: Stranger Things Dungeons and Dragons set

The D&D “red box” has gotten stranger.

Long-time Dungeons and Dragons fans remember the starter set released by TSR in 1983, which shipped in the now iconic “red box,” featuring cover art by Larry Elmore. Today, Wizards of the Coast has teamed up with the gang behind Netflix’s mega hit Stranger Things to release the Stranger Things D&D Starter Set which ships in, you guessed it, a glorious red box.

The set features everything you need to play Dungeons and Dragons:

  1. Rule book.

  2. An adventure “written” by Mike himself, featuring a monster of Mike’s own creation (don’t worry, we won’t spoil it).

  3. A set of dice.

  4. Two Demogorgon minis, one painted and one not.

You also get five character sheets featuring third-level characters that are ready to play, including a half-elf wizard, a hill dwarf bard and a human paladin. What I really like about the character sheets is they tell you what each character can expect to receive at 4th and 5th level. So you can keep playing them as long as you like.

It’s a solid kit and fans of the show will really enjoy playing Mike’s adventure. It’s really meant for players new to the game, but veterans will get a kick out of it too, provided that they enjoy the show. You can pick it up at a game store near you, or online. Check out our unboxing gallery below.

Eager to play? We have D&D Clubs for kids that meet weekly: one co-ed and a D&D Club for Girls. Additionally, if you’re looking for a place to meetup with your adults and play — or you want us to expertly run a terrifically fun one-night adventure for you and your friends or coworkers at your home our business (D&D is a FANTASTIC team-building activity) let us know. We can being the Demogorgon — or the upside-down — to you.
