Learn to Play Day
Sunday, February 12
Curious to try a new game but have no idea where to begin?
Y'all should meet up! At this event specifically!
This is part of a series of "Community Days" which will be happening at Atomic monthly. This one will be dedicated to teaching, learning, and introducing games to new players.
List of games currently being shown:
Role Playing Games
- Magic: The Gathering
- Arising amidst the CCG boom of the 1990s, Magic was often overshadowed by bigger, more popular games like Wyvern, Rage, or Spellfire. Its unique mechanics, innovated by its little-known designer, Richard Garfield, earned it a cult following and in 1999 it caught the eye of the plucky upstarts at Hasbro, where it enjoys modest success to this day.
- We will have training decks to borrow, but if you want to build your own, click here.
- There will be foil promotional cards and playmats available to all new players.
Legendary is a deck-building game like Dominion or Ascension, in which you recruit heroes that will allow you to attack various villains. Throughout the game, you are working against a Scheme that will challenge the player in defeating the mastermind. The game ends either when you defeat the mastermind four times, or the scheme plays out where evil wins.
- My Hero Academia
In a world populated with superheroes, few are able to make it to the ranks of Pro Hero! The game uses the UniVersus system to replicate fast head-to-head fighting action.
- Cthulhu Wars
Cthulhu Wars is a fast-moving strategy game about the apocalypse. You play as various otherworldly monstrosities seeking to dominate the Earth. You can take on the role of Great Cthulhu itself, or you can take charge of the other factions, such as the gibbering hordes of the Crawling Chaos, or the Thousand Young of the Black Goat of the Woods.
- Kill Team
Set in the same universe and using the same miniatures ranges as Warhammer 40,000 but with a different rules set, it allows you to play a game of fast-paced tactical skirmish combat, in less time and with a fraction of the models you’d need to play a full game of Warhammer 40,000.
- Aeronautica Imperialis
Take your WAAAAAGGHHH! to the skies!
- Middle Earth Strategy Battle Game
Merry and Pippin have gone and done it again! Can you save them from the Nazgûl ambush on Weathertop?
- Bolt Action
Come out to learn about Bolt Action, a tabletop war game. We'll recreate the epic struggle of WWII battlefields between a squad of 101st Airborne and a squad of German Grenadiers in a French bocage.
- Star Wars: Legion
Legion invites you to enter the ground battles of the Galactic Civil War or The Clone Wars as the commander of an army of miniatures filled with troopers, powerful vehicles, and iconic characters. With innovative mechanics for command and control to simulate the fog of war and the chaos of battle, the game’s unpainted, easily assembled minis give you a canvas to create the Star Wars army you’ve always wanted to lead into battle.
If you want to participate in this event as a teacher, please contact email@example.com with details about the game you want to demo and I will add you to the list if there is space remaining.
