Nashville Game Night is a chance to relax and unwind by playing games with friends and colleagues! Snacks, drinks, and lots of fun gaming action in a fun-filled atmosphere at some of the best places in town. B.Y.O.G. (bring your own game) or just show up and see what's "on the table". Dice games, card games, board games, co-op gaming and more. These aren't your grandparents games (or maybe they are if your grandparents are awesome).
Head over to http://www.meeplemountain.com/game-night/ for details on location, history, and hosting.
Nashville Game Night is open to gamers of all beliefs and backgrounds and our goal is to cultivate a community that can come together over our shared love of board games.
Friday, August 18th at 6:30pm The Game Keep
This will be an on going campaign. Please rsvp early and feel free to ask questions.
This is meant to be a heroic adventure, where the players will be front and center for major events. I roll from last sessions end to next sessions start with as little downtime inbetween as possible, no time skips. This is as open world sandbox as I can get, and I try to be as flexible as possible.
Saturday, August 19th at 12:00pm The Game Keep
The Pathfinder Society is a living campaign. On Golarion, the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the Pathfinder Society is an organization of explorers, vagabonds, sages, and treasure hunters determined to plumb the depths of the darkest tombs, and collect relics and lore from bygone ages. In Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you play a member of the Pathfinder Society, seeking fortune and glory all over the face of Golarion. At the same time, your character works for one of eight factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas. The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is an evolution of the 3.5 rules set of the world's oldest fantasy roleplaying game. You can find a free download of the Guide to PFS play here: http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety/v5748btp... There will also be pregens on hand. Come join us! New players (and GMs!) welcome.

Monday, August 21st at 6:00pm The Game Keep
Join the Nashville Board Game group for some games!
Monday, August 21st at 6:00pm McAlister's Deli
We are meeting at McAlisters Deli. They have the FOUR S's---Sandwiches, Soups, Salads and Spuds. As usual games start at 6pm. But I will be there at 5:30 for food. RSVPs open two weeks before the meetup starts.
REMINDER: please keep your RSVP updated, it helps with planning.
Tuesday, August 22nd at 6:00pm The Game Keep
The Track & Hull Club is a historical miniature gaming group that plays strategic games, primarily historical recreations or situations. We meet weekly at the Game Keep for miniature gaming.
Tuesday, August 22nd at 6:00pm My Place
We're attempting to cut costs by instead of having game night every week at a restaurant (which can get expensive for some) we alternate weeks at the restaurant and my house, thus only going to the restaurant 2 times a month as opposed to 4. As far as parking goes there will be plenty of space to do that in front of my or anyones house (People in the neighborhood are perfectly ok with people parking in front of their houses). Just try to avoid blocking (or using) driveways (including mine).
This will be a B.Y.O.R (bring your own refreshments/snacks) event
I'll be trying to keep this particular trial run limited to 12 people which should be ok since thats the max we usually get on a packed/"big" night anyway. Thus the "limitation" isn't really limiting at all. So anyone coming be sure to RSVP so I can get accurate counts. On the subject of RSVPing there are some in my official Facebook group that dont come/post here and some here that dont come/post on the FB group page so RSVPs here aslone wont always reflect the full/accurate total nor does RSVPs alone on the FB group. I'll handle the mediating between the two. Though as Ive said before since we've never went over 12 before in 2 years doing this even withe the discrepancy of RSVP's between both groups. I dont for see the limitation being met or exceeded.
If there are any questions, please do feel free to message me or post here. Thank You.
Tuesday, August 22nd at 7:00pm The Cumberland
Open boardgame evening - although additional meetup numbers are limited due to space restrictions. We usually have 4-6 other non-meetup people from the building who come.
Feel free to bring a favourite game. I have a small selection of games available: Dominion (all sets), Five Tribes, Splendor, Stone Age, Ubongo, Evo, Raiders of the North Sea, Alhambra Big Box, Ticket to Ride, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Munchkin, Portal, Incan Gold, Piece of Cake, Genial and a number of smaller quicker games.
This is a secure building, so to enter you will need to buzz the concierge and tell him that you are here for games. He will let you in, and direct you to where we are.
Parking is free at Bicentennial mall in the employee lots after hours and there is a free bus that will bring you very close, or else it's an easy 5 - 10 minute stroll. The Library Garage parking is right across the street. There is very limited on-street parking in the area, but you might get lucky.

Farmer's Guild Launch Party!
With the height of summer upon us, the sun is high in the sky, perfect weather for the farmhands of the Empire of the Free Cities! The Farmer’s Guild: The Honest Land will be hitting your local gaming store on August 18th. And to celebrate the release of the newest guild to take the world by storm, we’re also releasing a Farmer's Guild Launch Event Pack.
WHAT IS THE FARMER'S GUILD LAUNCH PACK?
This purpose of this pack is to enable your local gaming store to hold a 16-man Farmer’s Guild launch event, a day to celebrate everything about the Farmer’s Guild, and play a bunch of games too! Launch Party events are likely to be held on the release weekend or the immediate weekends following 18 August, as this would allow for players in your area to pick up The Honest Land. So, it’s best to check with your local gaming store, to see when they’re running their Farmer’s launch event(s)!
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE EVENT?
The Launch Event is designed for all Coaches, whether you've picked up the Farmers or not, with special Launch Party rules designed specifically to capture the style and play-mechanics of the Farmer’s Guild. Each Guild will benefit from their own unique special rules throughout the Launch Party for that added variety, challenge and reward. Regardless of the Guild you use, you’ll only need to bring a Captain, a Mascot, and 4 Players (including up to 1 eligible Union player if you wish) in order to play. FARMER SWAG!
But, It’s not just about playing with new awesome special rules either! Every Coach will also be getting some brilliant limited edition swag, just for turning up and playing! Each Coach will receive two Harvest-Markers, Turnips and Cabbages, to make Planting and Reaping in game all the more satisfying. Not only that but every Coach also receiving an alternate art Grange player card at the end of the event. OOOOHHHHHH!
Over the course of the Launch Party, Coaches will also be able to vote for the best painted team in attendance, along with voting for their favourite opponent. The Coaches fortunate enough to find themselves in these positions at the end of the event will receive an additional prize. The favourite opponent will be awarded with a limited-edition Metal Tater model, while the Coach with the best painted team will receive a limited-edition cauliflower ball, suitable for punting around any Farmer’s pitch!
If getting to play with some fun and exciting rules, bagging some limited edition Farmer’s swag and playing Guild Ball sounds like a good day out to you, be sure to ask your local gaming store when they’ll be holding their Farmer’s Guild launch event and get signed up now!
Wednesday, August 23rd at 6:00pm Cheshire Hall
Open board game and card game night - feel free to drop in! We have a large library of advanced board games and card games. There are usually a couple games running at any given time, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to jump into a game.
Parking in backyard; try to park next to each other to make room for everybody. The driveway is a bit steep down to the back, street parking is available if needed.
Doors open at 5:00pm; games usually get going around 6:00pm and end between 10:00 and Midnight.
Where is the new location? West Inglewood: that’s basically the bit of East Nashville directly north of downtown. Take 24/65 north, and turn right (east) on Trinity Lane. Turn left at the third traffic light (1 mile off the highway) and follow Jones Ave past the two quick turns left and right. The house has a huge pale blue side that we’re hanging a Tennessee flag from as a landmark for players.
It’s also easily accessed from Gallatin Pike or Ellington Parkway in East Nashville: we’re between the highway and all the foodie places you could want, a block from East Nashville Beer Works, a minute from fast food, a dozen restaurants, and two minutes from Kroger.
But… I use my phone for directions: The address is 2005 Jones Ave, Nashville, 37207
What about parking? There is ample parking in the backyard: it is one of the reasons we selected the location. The driveway is a semi-steep incline. Street parking is available.
The Games? Room? The NAGA Game Library is at the new location, and we have a much better layout: multiple large rooms, plus a socializing kitchen, a big backyard, and so on. Events will continue as they have in the past, just in a better location.
How far is it from the old place? Easy for current gamers: The new location is the same travel time for anybody who takes 24 from the south and nearly the same if you take 65 from the south (Franklin/Brentwood). It is closer if you take 40 from the east or 24/65 from the north, and the same if you come in from west of the 440/40 split (Dixon). If you are nearby, it’s about 15 minutes from here, plus traffic if it’s rush hour.
Cheshire Hall is at 2005 Jones Ave, 37207 as of August 2017 - Spread the word!
Wednesday, August 23rd at 6:30pm The Game Keep
• We have limited seating, please make sure to RSVP in order to save your seat!
• All new players should visit http://dnd.wizards.com/playevents/organized-play and download the free players handbook and catch up on all the rules.
The new season of Dungeons and Dragons Adventurers League begins!
Greater Nashville D&D Adventurers League
The D&D Adventurers League is an ongoing official organized play campaign for Dungeons & Dragons. It uses the fifth edition of the Dungeons & Dragons rules, and features the Forgotten Realms setting. You can play D&D Adventurers League games at any place that features adventures bearing the D&D Adventurers League logo. You can create a character and bring that character to games anywhere D&D Adventurers League is supported.
THE NEW SEASON CONTINUES:
When the shadows grow long in Waterdeep and the fireplace in the taproom of the Yawning Portal dims to a deep crimson glow, adventurers from across the Forgotten Realms, and even from other worlds, spin tales and spread rumors of dark dungeons and lost treasures. Some of the yarns overheard by Durnan, the barkeep of the Yawning Portal, are inspired by places and events in far-flung lands from across the D&D multiverse, and these tales have been collected into a single volume.
Enjoy, and remember to keep a few spare character sheets handy.
Tales from the Yawning Portal includes the following adventures:
Against the Giants, Dead in Thay, Forge of Fury, Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan, Sunless Citadel, Tomb of Horrors, White Plume Mountain
This season's Dungeon Masters:
Robert R, Kristine T, Mike S, Josh L, Jonathan R
BRING A CHARACTER OR YOU CAN CREATE ONE AT THIS EVENT. (We do not roll for stats or hit points, use standard array or point buy only.)
BRING YOUR PENCILS, PAPER, AND LUCKY DICE!
NEW AND VETERAN PLAYERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN ANYTIME.
Want your group listed here? We're going to be opening up this website for collaborative editing in May 2016, or you can contact Evan to get your group listed right now. You can also list events on the NAGACentral Meetup, or ask that your meetup be added to the calendar to the left.
Every Wednesday Cheshire Hall hosts a Open Board Game Night, which can range from card games through all manner of board games, through to strategy wargames. There is often a pot luck dinner, and plenty of pick up games. Everybody is welcome to show up, meet other gamers and play from the extensive library of games our members have. Feel free to bring a game, or show up to look for new players. For more information, call Evan at (814) 889-8845, or Sarah at (814) 404-0008.
Another Wednesday group meets at Frontline Games in Clarksville on Wednesdays, and it's a great open group too!
Every Friday Cheshire Hall hosts a Open RPG and Strategy Game Night, which is honestly just the night for longer games -- including board games if you want. It's a little more organized, so you might want to declare a game you want to run and get some players. On the other hand, there are usually a few people who just show up that can form a table.
Do you like murder mystery parties or improv theater? Are you into urban and modern supernatural fantasy games? Then join the ongoing story that is Nashville Unveiled! This is a theatrical style LARP: no foam weapons, and more like a dinner party with character sheets. Well... and occasional bloodthirsty combat resolved through a variant of the classic RPG turns and dice. Alternates with Tabletop RPG Day on Saturdays.
Every year we head up to the biggest four days in gaming: GenCon Indy. The 2016 Caravan is already shaping up for the largest gaming convention in the world.

Historic Dungeons & Dragons® Campaign Returns
Loxley, Madison, WI, August 11, 2017
Legendary game designer Frank Mentzer, famed for his worldwide version of the Dungeons & Dragons® game, has teamed with fiction author Ted Fauster to revisit one of the earliest known D&D® fantasy worlds. The game continues to be one of the most popular of all time, and Mentzer’s version is still available in fourteen languages, on every continent.
In 1981, Mentzer was given written permission from E. Gary Gygax (co-author of the original game in 1974) to establish and develop this little-known portion of Oerth, one of the game’s original settings. This new realm of Empyrea has a 40-year history (starting with simple materials from Judges Guild) and is still actively used. The artist Darlene, who painted Gary’s maps in his 1980 product, will create similar maps for this one. Other famous artists of that era -- including Caldwell, Dee, Diesel, Easley, Elmore, Holloway, Jaquays, and Otus -- are being invited to join the project.
Empyrea is on the mysterious and isolated continent of Aquaria, east of Gygax’s World of Greyhawk™ setting. Until now, knowledge of this portion of the world has remained largely a mystery, as the broad and dangerous Solnor ocean separates the two. The continent is briefly described in the Advanced D&D® adventure “Egg of the Phoenix” (Mentzer & Jaquays, TSR Inc., 1987).
“It’s time to share this Dungeons & Dragons® world with hobby gamers,” Mentzer says. “Unlike others, Gary approved this personally. Empyrea combines both traditional fantasy and science fiction elements. Magic is dominant, but technology lurks. And it’s one Realm… this isn’t a cluster of medieval city-states like Greyhawk.”
Author Ted Fauster has accepted the role of Creative Aide, which was Mentzer’s original title when he worked with Gygax at TSR in the 1980s.
Mentzer and Darlene will finance the set through crowdfunding, with support from Judges Guild. It will be compatible with the most recent Fifth Edition D&D® game (D&D 5E) as well as Mentzer’s own world-famous "Red Box" edition of the game.
An official start date for the Kickstarter will be announced shortly after the GenCon® 50 Game Convention in August.
