    Curious about Dungeons and Dragons? Give it a try with this one-session-long adventure for beginners!

    D&D is a popular fantasy role-playing game in which you play a character who teams up with other players to explore, solve puzzles, and fight or outwit monsters. Learn the basic rules of this popular game as you undertake an adventure with fellow players!

    This adventure uses pre-generated characters, so you must register by July 13th to bid of your preference of character and get your info sheet before game-day. Late registrations will be assigned a random character.

    Ages: 12-18

    Note: this is a repeat of the game played on July 15th, so if you played that session, please do not also register for this one - it would not be as fun knowing the puzzles and enemies ahead of time. Give other players a chance to learn, and stay tuned for new games coming up later!
