Ladies’ Night – March: An Equinox of Horror and Dread

18 Mar
5:45pm – 10pm
Wednesday, February 20
The Green Dragon Bar & Bustro
928 SE 9th St
Cthulhu-Dark
No boys allowed! Let’s drink good beer, eat good food, enjoy each others’ company, and play quick, easy-to-learn, story-based role playing games in a welcoming environment.
The game don’t usually begin until 6:15, so feel free to join us for drinks and witty banter before hand. What games are in store? The peerless CJ will be running Cthulhu Dark, a light weight game of Lovecraftian horrors to satiate your need forbidden knowledge on demand. The saucy Sabrina will be running something as well. Not sure what yet, but I can assure you, she IS the sauciest.
All experience levels are… more than welcome, from first time gaming to seasoned storytellers and roleplayers. We’re always looking for more ladies to help facilitate, so shoot me a message or post here if you have a game you’d like to share! If you are intrigued by RPGs and/or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping in to an established group (especially one that — let’s face it — is sort of dominated by dudes), you are SUPER DUPER EXTRA welcome.
These games take no more than a few minutes to learn, play within a couple of hours, and focus on story rather than rules. Story games are a little bit like board games, and a lot like grown-up versions of the “let’s pretend” games you probably played as a child. Above all, They are about TELLING A STORY TOGETHER. It’s not about winning or losing. It’s not about making the best character or mastering the rules. It’s about CREATING something together and HAVING FUN. Come check it out!
PS: If you got this invite and you aren’t a woman, please do us a favor and tell all your female friends! Thanks!
