Interested in Dungeons & Dragons but wished it was less time-consuming? Here is your chance to try the Index Card Role Playing Game (ICRPG).

The game play is shorter and more interactive, the rules are simpler, there is minimal math involved, and it’s still a great time gaming together! Perfect for first-timers or gamers with busy schedules. Come give it a try as RPG expert/Game Master, Jon Langer, leads you through an evening of tabletop gaming.  Ages 14 and older, please. Registration begins September 1 – limited seating!
