What we're about

Crit Hit! Is a local adventure gaming community in Phoenix, Arizona that hosts a large 3 day gaming retreat in the summer and a 1 day gaming festival in the winter (both funded via Kickstarter), in addition to bi-weekly game nights & other small events throughout the year.

At Crit Hit we have a simple, 3 word ethos that we strive for:

Meet. Learn. Play.

Meet new players and GMs; socialize; maybe find a new game to join after the event is over; even enjoy a panel or other social event at Crit Hit! Join our ever-growing and active online community and find like-minded gamers. Make new friends, go on new adventures.

Learn about some of the best indie RPG and Board Games around, from award-winning designers to highly experienced GMs, you will walk away from Crit Hit having learned about something new in our hobby! We also feature OSR games and, of course, we have Dungeons & Dragons.

Play games, enjoy yourself, and consider Crit Hit your gaming retreat. Life is hectic, and finding time to game is difficult. Set a side 3 days to do what you love!

Snakes & Lattes Tempe

JOIN US THE NIGHT BEFORE YOU FEAST WITH OUR BOARD GAME NIGHT AT SNAKES & LATTES in TEMPE! Learn to play the COIN system! COIN can be described as multi-factional guerrilla wargames with a simple area control system that is driven by actions and objectives that are often unique for each faction. Bolted on to this is a card-driven historical event system; the result is simplistic, asymmetrical progression with a historical narrative. With four players the military environment has a political layer of oversight that drives player interaction, sub-optimal decisions, and tense tactical trade-offs. Even your so-called friends can pose a direct threat to your efforts through corruption, cultural patronage, or shady business practices. This is a great beginner game to introduce you to world of the COIN system and war games in general. If you like Euro strategy board games this is a great gateway to a whole other world of games!
