SNSO is now on the SECOND Saturday of the Month!


We're moving ONE WEEK INTO THE FUTURE! After chatting it over with our main location sponsor, Source Comics & Games, we're now moving our regular Saturday Night Space Opera slot one week later in the month.

This helps us avoid conflicts with holidays and big events at the store, such as when New Year's Eve, Fourth of July, or Free Comic Book Day fall on a game night.

We also have the chance to reach more players with Family Board Game Night on the same evening of the month.

AND...it's never been easier to remember, because: alliteration.

So adjust your calendars and flux capacitors--we're on for Second Saturdays at The Source!

July: STAR TREK Meets VALERIAN in TERROR IN TIME!


Greetings timespace fans! Set your atomic clocks for July 1--that's when spacio-temporal agents from Valerian and Laureline's universe find themselves face-to-face with the Federation from Star Trek! To celebrate the release of Luc Besson's upcoming space fantasy film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, We're diving into an original FASA Star Trek adventure by GM Erik Mornes: TERROR IN TIME. Here's the mission details:
In the 31st century, the United Federation of Planets is threatened by factions attempting to change the course of history and its civilization. As temporal agents of the Temporal Integrity Commission, you are to investigate the corruption of holomatrices, normally used for entertainment, into terrifying nightmares. The theft of a time-pod leads you on a chase through space and time. Inspired by the Temporal Cold War from Star Trek: Enterprise and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
