What better way to spend a few hours than sit around with your friends, escape to the land of high fantasy, befriend some wizards, pillage treasure, explore dungeons, and kill some monsters!   That is what rpg is all about, and it is loads of fun! 

You can create custom maps, unique characters, and paint little miniatures of your favorite heros and monsters.  Here are some of our favorite painted minis!  

If you don’t know how to play, you can book an Adventure Party here at Off The Shelf Games.  Our experienced Dungeon Master will lead your party through a one-shot adventure, no experience required!  The ideal party size is 4-5 players, and is a great idea for a small birthday party or something different to do.

We also look forward to participating in the annual Free RPG Day each year.  Check out our 2020 RPG Day here, and can’t wait until the next one in 2021!  

We have temporarily suspended Thursday One-Shots and Friday Adventurer’s League in mid-March 2020 until further notice.  We REALLY look forward to being able to start those again soon.  Individuals may reserve our castle room for their established group, and is free for members.
