Join a band of adventurers to create your own fantasy story instead of simply reading one.

Dungeons and Dragons (4th edition) is a tabletop roleplaying game that mixes high fantasy action with collaborative storytelling. Open to both first-time and experienced players between the ages of 12 and 25. Pre-rolled character templates will be provided to customize and jump right into the action, but characters created at home of level 1 to 3 are also welcome. The game will be casual and slow paced so players can learn the mechanics of the game, but veterans who want to help guide or even run their own campaign are encouraged to attend.

Interested in collectible card games, instead? Bring your Yu-Gi-Oh! or Magic: The Gathering decks and casually duel other players, or bring a tabletop game of your own to run.
