Arkham Horror

Taken from

Arkham Horror is a cooperative adventure game themed around H.P Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. Players choose from 16 Investigators and take to the streets of Arkham. Before the game, one of the eight Ancient Ones is chosen and it’s up to the Investigators to prevent it from breaking into our world. During the course of the game, players will upgrade their characters by acquiring skills, allies, items, weapons, and spells. It’s up to the players to clean out the streets of Arkham by fighting many different types of monsters, but their main goal is to close portals to other dimensions that are opening up around town. With too many portals open the Ancient One awakens and the players only have one last chance to save the world. Defeat the Ancient One in combat!

More information soon to follow.



Taken from

A game of Eclipse places you in control of a vast interstellar civilization, competing for success with its rivals. You will explore new star systems, research technologies, and build spaceships to wage war with. There are many potential paths to victory, so you need to plan your strategy according to the strengths and weaknesses of your species, while paying attention to the other civilizations’ endeavors.

The shadows of the great civilizations are about to eclipse the galaxy. Lead your people to victory!

Danger and Adventure on the Darkland Moors!

Fighters, clerics, thieves, magic-users, elves, dwarves, and halflings are needed to explore the Darkland Moors. Why are so many orcs scouring the moors, concentrating on a ruined castle? What could be the cause of the rumors of a giant that is terrorizing towns to the north? What is the Barrowmaze? Find out, and be a hero, or just get rich! Old-school Dungeons & Dragons sandbox-style gaming using the Labyrinth Lord retroclone rules.

Part 1 will be on Friday night at 7pm. Part 2 will be on Saturday night at 7pm. (You don’t need to have played in Part 1 to play in Part 2.)
The Labyrinth Lord fantasy role-playing game allows you to experience the game play of the earliest editions of the world’s most popular fantasy role-playing game. The Labyrinth Lord rules emulate the rules and game play experience of the Moldvay 1981 D&D Basic set.
