What we're about

This group is for people who want to learn about and play a variety of different RPGs. Everybody knows Dungeons and Dragons, but there are a ton of games out there covering everything you can imagine (plus D&D already has its own group >_>). From versatile systems like FATE and the Apocalypse Engine to indie RPGs to storytelling games that don't even have any dice rolling, you can play them here. We even do LARPs occasionally!

If you want to play a particular game, post it in the discussion page! You don't have to have a time and place set up to make one. You can play a one shot in a system you've never heard of, or maybe you'll find a regular group playing that one game you've always wanted to try.

The Checkerboard

Disguiser Party Game Lounge

The Checkerboard is a murder mystery game set in a hotel. The goal is the find out which player is the murderer while playing through side events for each character. Each player is given a booklet describing their role in the game for them to act out. There are evidence and clue cards to find, and a moderator will run the game and help handle clues.

RPG Night at Thirsty Dice

Thirsty Dice

Thirsty Dice, Philadelphia's first board game cafe, has RPG nights every other Tuesday night. Most of the time I won't be there, but they do have open tables for you to drop in and play something. Mostly D&D. I hear parking can be difficult, so keep that in mind if you're driving. It's a few blocks from the Fairmount stop on the Broad Street line if you're taking SEPTA.
