JUNE SNSO: Inter-dimensional Summer Vacation!



School is out! Summer is here! Time to air up the tires on your BMX dirt bike and tear off on a strange, sci-fi adventure in the suburbs!

In the spirit of Stranger Things, E.T., The Goonies, The Explorers, and many other 80s adventure flicks that became pop culture icons, we bring you TALES FROM THE LOOP!

Based on the stunning, nostalgia-infused art of Simon Stålenhag, this roleplaying game from Modiphius Entertainment superbly weaves massive, industrial robots, strange creatures, and thrilling mysteries into a wistful and moody, 80s landscape.

Tales From the Loop won five ENnies (the Oscars of tabletop RPGs) in 2017 including Best Game, Best Setting, Best Writing, Best Internal Art, and Product of the Year!

Mission details:

The police consider you a nuisance. Your parents want you to back by dinner. But you and your band of tweenage misfit pals are too busy exploring the mysteries dredged up from the reality-ripping "Loop," a massive space-time altering machine guarded in secrecy at a nearby facility in your hometown.

May SNSO: SPACE SCOUNDRELS!


We've got not one, but TWO great games, packed with excitement this month! Just in time for that giant Avengers crossover movie and the new Han Solo flick. Play a slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler or scruffy-looking nerf herder, looking for fame and fortune as you gallivant across the galaxy!

Choose from one of the misfit Guardians of the Galaxy from the Marvel universe or play a quick-draw space smuggler with a wry smile. Either way, space outlaws rule the day!

Mission One: Guardians of the Galaxy: The Mad Titan

The insidious Thanos has stolen a Cosmic Cube, and a combined team of mighty Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy pursue him to Moord, homeworld of the warlike Badoon. Facing a gigantic Badoon warship, can our heroes stop Thanos before he unlocks the unspeakable power of the Cosmic Cube? Hang on to your ray guns, True Believers!

GM: Erik Mornes  

Mission Two: Star Wars: Tern, A Prophet...

Eagle-eyed smuggler Tern Heldo threw you a party last night, and late in the evening let on that he was worried someone was out to "close his accounts". Today, he's missing. Will your band of scoundrels, rapscallions, and ne'er-do-wells find out who--or what-- got him before your oldest surviving friend is gone for good?
