Battletech

Days and Times TBD

Bootcamp

Bootcamp is designed primarily for players new to Battletech, or those needing a refresher on the sequence of play. Players will learn the basic rules for moving, firing, and resolving damage in a quick, fun game against an opponent. Bootcamp is run concurrently with Battletech Grinder, and upon completion of Bootcamp, players join directly into the Grinder game. A typical Bootcamp session runs 30-45 minutes and can accommodate up to four players, with new session starting after the completion of the prior one. All materials are provided.

Grinder

Battletech Grinder is a progressive free-for-all Battlemech combat, designed to transition players from the introductory rules and technology of the Bootcamp scenario to the full scope and technology of the Battletech Total Warfare Core rule set. Players begin with a light Battlemech, equipped with the most basic weapons. When that unit is destroyed in combat, the player re-enters the Grinder with a more powerful Battlemech equipped with more advanced weapons and new equipment, and this continues until the player commands the most advanced and deadly units in the game. This allows for the teaching of the rule set in a stepped fashion. Players can play as long as they wish, leave, and return during the scheduled event listing if they wish due to the continuous nature of the Grinder. Players who have not played before should complete the Battletech Bootcamp prior to entering into the Grinder. Grinder can accommodate from 2 to 14 players. All materials are provided.

D&D Next (Fifth Edition)

Days and Times TBD

In January 2012, Wizards of the Coast announced that the fifth major edition of the game, officially referred to as D&D Next, was under development.

Public playtesting began on May 24, 2012 with the final playtest packet released on September 20, 2013. D&D Next is scheduled for release in Summer 2014.
