What we're about

We are a female and non-binary led table top role playing and board game group based in NYC (currently playing mostly online due to the pandemic). Our focus is on people traditionally underrepresented in the gaming industry and making sure they have a place at our table. We are open to members of all genders and backgrounds. Our events aim to be a safe and fun environment for the hobby we all love. We also encourage participation from all skill levels! First timers are more than welcome and all of our events include a brief system overview for anyone who needs it.

This will be an informal meeting, we'll play one-shots have some drinks and hang out! Or use this space to host your own campaign! We have the backroom so let's have some fun with it :) I'll be hosting one-shots of either a one-page RPG (honey heist, lasers and feelings, etc.), D&D or maybe thirsty sword lesbians. But feel free to bring your own and DM yourself!

ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME! Just bring a pencil, dice and a player's handbook if you have it.
