Retro Meeple

Crazy Mocha

Pittsburgh’s classic board game meetup is back with a new name, location, & focus! Join us each 3rd Saturday of the month to play old favorites & discover lost treasures. The focus is on games originally released 10 years ago or more (reissues & reprints are OK). The games played have ranged from modern classics (Carcassonne) to family favorites (Rummikub) to the odd mass market game (Careers). So, be sure to gather your friends, grab that game from the back of your closet, and join us for Retro Meeple!

Meet, Play, Learn: Dungeons and Dragons

Carnegie Library Oakland

Come play 5th edition D&D at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main in Oakland. All experience levels welcome. We have dice and pre-generated characters for your use, or you can bring your own! Typically, there is a table for beginners that starts characters at 1st level. Depending on the availability of other Dungeon Masters, there may be additional tables for higher character levels, or more experienced players. Now in the South Wing Reading Room (formerly known as the International Poetry Room)! On the second floor, on the south end of the main hallway, next to JCEC and the main reference room. Unfortunately, we cannot have food or drink in the South Wing Reading Room. There is a water fountain nearby, but food and drinks must be consumed elsewhere in the library. Please comment below with your experience level with rpgs or with d&d, so that we can try and organize tables ahead of time. If you would like to offer your services as a Dungeon Master, or are interested in trying to learn how to be a Dungeon Master, send Wren a message.
