3PM The gathering

Bring your pot luck and spend an hour of fellowship and community while you and your DMs get ready for an afternoon of magic and mayhem.

4PM: The Adventure Begins

You’ll take on a brand new quest full of dangers and treasures and you’ll need every good die roll you get!

Entry Fee: $5

This is our weekly entry fee every Wednesday. Your ticket gets you a seat at the table plus enters you in our Gold Reward system which earns your store credit every time you play.

The time is now. Draw your sword, raise your bow, or open your spellbook. No matter how you want to face the challenge, our tables are full of unforgettable fun and incredible wonder.
