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.

D&D Club for Girls

Tabletop gaming is a hobby traditionally monopolized by men and boys. Our D&D Club for Girls provides a supportive, fun environment for girls ages 10 and up who are ready to pick up the dice and make way for adventure.

Roleplaying Games (RPGs) like Dungeons and Dragons are narrative game systems that encourage cooperation, decision-making and creative thinking. RPG players are immersed in a shared story-telling experience as they work together to overcome obstacles. This program will focus on introducing players to the core concepts of Dungeons and Dragons.

During our five-week session, girls will:

  • Create a custom character and a custom character sheet

  • Receive their own mini figure, representing their character

  • Receive a full set of seven RPG dice in a drawstring dice bag

  • Receive a copy of the basic rules of D&D

Experience screen-free fun while practicing teamwork, cooperation, critical thinking skills and playing lots of Dungeons and Dragons!

Where: Cape Cod Coffee, Mashpee Commons (48 Market Street)

When: Saturdays, March 9 - April 6, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Cost: $150 for five weeks ($35 drop-in)

The problem: You and your friends want to play RPGs together, but struggle to find a reliable location. People cancel, availability of each others’ homes changes and so on. It can be frustrating.

The solution: Reboot Game Lab. We provide the beautiful, clean, well-lit cafe as a reliable location for your RPG night. Dungeons and Dragons, Star Wars, Pathfinder, Fiasco, Gloomhaven…whatever. Gather your party and get ready to play.

Play begins every Saturday at 12:00 pm and ends around 4:00 pm. Late arrivals and early exits should try to notify their DM in advance. The average table takes 5-6 players, so be sure to show up on time! There is a $10 door charge for all players. You can also purchase our discounted $80 Encounters Pass which covers TEN entries.
