Or stay longer and participate in a variety of board, role playing, or collectible card games. It's a great place to network and share experiences, stories, and gaming ideas.

Cyber Warriors Offline Meet & Greet

The swamps of a foreign land. The aether of the Galactic Rim. The thrill of standing after a battle, the bodies of 1,000 trolls encircling you. You have traveled the virtual landscape to prove yourself. Now come and brag a little. Share your favorite adventures. Recommend your favorite online or console game. Learn what others are playing and what foes they face. The next great adventure could be but a story away ....

Mixed Version Dungeon Crawl

Bring your mini. Bring a character. Bring your dice. And bring bandages - your character may need them. This 3D dungeon crawl will feature multiple entry points, story lines, and encounter levels. Bring any standard PHB character from Dungeons & Dragons: 4th Edition or Edition 3.5. Play in 30 minute segments. Your group of 4 can also reserve time at the table in 2 hour blocks.

Not into D&D? Then your group of up to 4 players can reserve time at the table and run your own system using the landscape provided. The standard 1in x 1in layout of the landscape can be adapted to most RPG schemes.

Board Game Challenge

She looked at you the wrong way! This means war! Chess at high noon or else!

They just couldn't leave it alone. They kept spouting all lies during that last panel. Their Empire is mine in Star Wars Monopoly!

Whether we provide the game or you bring your own, the grudge match is yours to define. It's not destiny or choice. It's destiny and choice.
