Beer & Board Games

Do you play board games? Do you like beer? Adventure Brewing Company in Stafford has you covered. Join them this Wednesday for board games and beer.

D&D Encounters

At 6pm every Wednesday in September, starting on the 3rd (tonight), we will be having a D&D encounters group for any players interested in trying out the the new edition. What is D&D Encounters you ask? From the Wizards of the Coast website:

“D&D Encounters is our weekly Wednesday play program, geared for a casual play audience with short sessions each week. It serves as a great introduction to our main storyline events, and uses material right from published adventure product. Each session only takes 1-2 hours to play, so it’s easy to fit your game in after school or work. And each week there’s a new and exciting challenge. Jump in anytime!

D&D Encounters participants are supported in-store with kits that include player (faction) and DM packs. These packs come in a beautiful folio designed with your faction’s colors and symbol. When you arrive for your first session of D&D Encounters, you’ll choose a faction pack with all sorts of goodies contained within – blank character sheets, log sheets, table tents, special certificates, and more. Dungeon Masters will receive a pack themed to the storyline, containing items for their use.

We’ll introduce the Tyranny of Dragons storyline by adapting a portion (levels 1-4) of the first adventure, Hoard of the Dragon Queen, for play. This adventure adaptation will be available as a complimentary PDF for stores that schedule D&D Encounters, who can then pass it along to their Dungeon Masters. After you’ve finished playing that portion of the adventure, you can continue play by picking up the rest of the adventure from the store or play in D&D Expeditions.”

After 5 gaming visits you’ll get 40% off the game of your choice (provided it’s either in stock or we can order it from our vendor)
