If you think you have what it takes to brave the fiercest foes, fight the toughest battles, and conquer the vilest enemies, we have the Dungeons & Dragons play experience for you! Gather your master tacticians and rules experts together to kick down the dungeon doors and begin the assault! D&D Lair Assault is the Wizards Play Network in-store program that pits tactically-minded players against a super challenge where the difference between victory and defeat is dependent upon your game knowledge, ability to adapt, and a little bit of luck. You'll pit your wits against some of the most difficult encounters you've ever played.
Each challenge is a mega-encounter that plays in just a few hours, but many will need to make more than one run at it in pursuit of victory. D&D Lair Assault challenges are available for a few months, and stores can schedule their sessions at any time during that period.
D&D Lair Assault has been designed for a quality, fun, super-challenging play experience that really encourages repeat play. We've designed the kits to accommodate as many players as possible by keeping the focus on the play experience, accomplishments, and bragging rights. Rather than making the challenge all about obtaining a physical "prize," it's about having a great time playing a fun D&D game available nowhere else.
Gearing Up for Danger
Each D&D Lair Assault challenge will specify a level. The fourth D&D Lair Assault is Spiderkiller; details: TBA.
Players must bring characters of the appropriate level to participate.
There will not be any pre-gen characters available, nor will there be time allotted for character-building during the event. Characters higher or lower level than the challenge’s level are not allowed.

one magic item of one level higher than their level (level + 1) one magic item of their level (level + 0) one magic item of one level lower than their level (level – 1) gold pieces equal to the value of one magic item of one level lower than their level (level – 1) to purchase any other equipment they think they’ll need you may have no more than two consumable items (like potions or magic ammunition) equal to or less than the challenge’s level you may have no more than one rare magic item Note that players may equip their characters with magic items that are less than the stated levels if they so choose.
We will only accept groups of 4-6 players. You are highly encouraged to assemble your group in advance. Seating is limited to the first 12 players - if you do not RSVP, you are not guaranteed a seat.
