It’s a big month for events at OEJ! We’re welcoming 2019 with a little something for everyone - from board game learn to plays to prerelease events for the newest magic set we have you covered! Learn to play Dungeons and Dragons in a special event run by OEJ or brush up on your Pokemon skills so you can play with your kids! We’re also hosting tournaments for Keyforge and Star Wars X-Wing!
Board Game Learn to Play Events
Our board game learn to plays are super casual gatherings where the staff at OEJ gets to share a new game or an old favorite with you! All experience levels are welcome!
Saturday, January 5th @ 6pm
This week we are featuring Century Golem Edition. In this gorgeous fantasy game, players compete for resources in the marketplace to build friendly Golems from powerful gems. We love this game because its a balanced and approachable resource management game!
Saturday, January 12th @ 6pm
This week we are featuring Dice Throne, a multiplayer combat game with dice rolling and card game components. Play as heroes battling in an epic arena, use your unique hero skill cards and combat dice to best your opponents and emerge victorious! We love this game because it’s easy to learn, has fun and simple mechanics reminiscent of classic games like Yahtzee but leaves you feeling excited by the characters and their traits and abilities!
Learn to Play Dungeons and Dragons
Every month, OEJ offers a staff-run D&D campaign! If you’re totally new to the game and want to learn, this is the perfect event for you! These low-stress games are designed so that all you need to bring is your self and a little imagination! Stay tuned for future D&D workshops for intermediate players and DMs too.
Sunday, Janaury 13th @ 11:30am
You have been tasked with finding and hunting a mysterious woodland monster that has been terrorizing the quiet town of Fairhaven. Will you be brave enough to venture into the dark?

Entry is $5 (huzzah for paid DMs!) and you can sign up to save your seat here. Advanced sign up is recommended, but limited seating available day-of!
