Welcome to the inaugural instalment of the Crit Calendar, where we will highlight RPG/Board Game/Card Game/Minis special events happing in the Phoenix Metro area from Thursday to Thursday. Our goal is to also have a consolidated calendar of all the regularly scheduled game days/nights around town as well. (Spoilers: there are a TON of game nights happening around the valley)
This list is by no means complete but we wanted to get even a limited list out, so that you can be in the know of cool events happening. All the headings are clickable links to more detailed information or the host store Facebook page.
So this weekend go out and roll some dice and move some meeples!
Does your game shelf have room for more games? Of course not, but don’t let that stop you from going out and taking advantage of some pretty awesome deals on games and mini’s. (I know I will be heading out to grab one of those TMNT DiceMasters games, DiceMasters is awesome and this is a stand alone game) This is happening now until they are sold out.
FRIDAY Oct 14th
Stop Nazis from summing things that most likely have tenticles. 7pm at Imperial Outpost
Do you like your mini’s creepy, wierd and slightly steampunkish? Do think those mini’s should try to kill each other? Sure you do! Go check out this awesome little mini’s game ran by Crit Hit’s good friend Darrell and Josh! 5pm-9pm at Tempe Comics. (edited to include the Mighty Josh, my bad-EJM)
SATURDAY Oct 15th
Game Depot’s monthly day of gaming goodness happening! Find out who can devour the most hopless heros at the Boss Monster Callange and take part in the Ashes Rise of Phoenix Tournament (limit 8 players) at 11am. Fun starts at 11am-7pm.
Do you dream of being a Board Game Designer with millions of adoring fans, screaming your name as you step out of a limo and into a red carpet illluminated by the non stop flash of paparazzi? Well kid, ya gotta start somewhere and Heat Sync Labs in Mesa wants to help you out. Join them for a night of sharing ideas and techniques for creating the next board game hit!
