Tabletop Gaming

The Panorama Ballroom will once again be hosting a massive tabletop gaming area, for all of your cardboard related activities. Sign up for a board game tournament, borrow a game from our collection to play with your friends, challenge all comers in your favourite card game, or join an RPG session run by one of our friendly volunteers.

Come on in and borrow a game from the library to play with your friends in our free Indie Board Games Room. We have a big selection, with all your favourite games and a bunch of others you may have never seen before. If you’re interested in trying out a new game but aren’t sure how to play, ask one of our volunteers and they’ll help you figure out the rules and find opponents.

On top of this, we will also be running tournaments for some of your favourite board games and learn-to-play sessions for anybody who’s interested in sitting down and learning about a new game.

Role Playing Games

A role-playing game (RPG) is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making or character development. Actions taken within many games succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines.

Ok get ready to roll for initiative!

Showcasing the following systems
· Dungeons and Dragons 5th Ed (Adventurer’s League & Homebrew)
· Shadow Run 5th Ed
· Dark Heresy
· World of Darkness
· Legend of 5 Rings RPG
· Call of Cthulu
· Gurps 4th Edition
· Bloody Quest
· Starfinder Society

You’ll find something to peak your interest in the RPG area.

So whether you are an RPG veteran or have never played before; bring your strength, cunning and charisma and sign up for some games in the panorama ballroom.
