RPG (Role Playing Games)

Embark on epic adventures through worlds of sword and sorcery, urban tech, thrilling dystopias, horrific histories and more! Roleplaying games (RPGs) are a collaborative storytelling experience that put you at the center of the action. Adventure awaits at the limit of your imagination and the roll of the dice! 

Want to know how to grab a seat at the table? The Brooklyn Strategist offers multiple ways to play! 

Grades: All Ages

Wednesdays 7:00pm-10:30pm

Encounters is our weekly, casual format for new and experienced players of 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons. We have numerous campaigns ran by volunteer Dungeon Masters happening throughout the night. Players with little to no experience with role-playing games, or are returning after a long absence, are all welcome. Ages 16+

Play begins every Wednesday at 7:00pm and ends around 10:30pm, but we suggest showing up 15min early to get seated at a table. Late arrivals and early exits should try to notify their DM in advance, but are rarely a problem. The average table takes 5-6 players, so be sure to show up on time!  There is a $10 door charge for all players. You can also purchase our discounted $80 Encounters Pass which covers TEN entries.
