Dungeons & Dragons

Not just Wednesday, every day!

We run Introduction to D&D tables, starting fairly regularly. The tables are an introduction to 5th Edition and are ideal for anyone who has little or no experience of Dungeons & Dragons (or Role Playing Games in general), or for folks who have not played in quite a while and want a refresher before they jump in.

There’s also heaps of other tables playing ongoing adventures!

Check out details on our Dungeons and Dragons page!

Then, if you’ve got questions, ask away in our Games Laboratory Roleplaying Games Facebook group.

Support us in keeping the lights on and rent paid by contributing something to the store when you’re in.
Buy some drinks or snacks here, pick up the last D&D book you’re missing, or buy a few dice to donate to your DM. It all helps 😀

League@Lab (Wednesdays)

League@Lab (Wednesdays) @ Games Laboratory | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

We are continuing our fantastic Board Game League, League@Lab!

Each week we will setup the League participants with a classic game to play. Everyone will play 2 rounds of our specially chosen board game. If you win both of your games you will get a gift voucher to spend on anything in the shop!

The games will be timed and at the end of the round you will take the final results. Even if the game isn’t entirely finished it will end when the time runs out – this is to make sure the league runs on time.

Entry fee is 5 dollars.
6:45 sharp start time.

The games for the next 4 weeks will be:

30th of May – Splendor
6th of June – Carcassonne
13rd of June – Ticket to Ride
20th of June – Monopoly
27th of June – Catan

For the Board Game League we will not be teaching the games on the night, however, we encourage you to come in and use the store copies to familiarise yourself before the night so you can join in on the fun.

This is a fun and casual board gaming League, our goal is that everyone has a fun, relaxed time, and gets to play some awesome board games!!!

Magic Open House Core Set 2019 - Learn to Play Magic - Free!

WHAT IS MAGIC?

In Magic: The Gathering, you are a Planeswalker, one of the greatest mages in the Multiverse. Using a deck of Magic cards, you cast spells, summon creatures to fight for you, and battle against other Planeswalkers in an attempt to take your opponent down.

Complete beginner?
Just played Magic Duels:Origins/Duels of the Planeswalkers?
Love card games and looking to try out a new one?

If any of these sound like you come in and get a free deck and learn to play from an experienced judge. Bring your friends and learn together. You will also get a cool promo card!

The learn to play session is ~40 minutes with some casual play afterwards.
We’re starting at 1pm, no registration needed, but we do need everyone here on time to start together.

We’ll walk you through it from scratch getting straight into some games, everyone gets a deck to take home 😀

If you’re interested, Magic Duels (available on PC, Xbox One, and iOS) is a another great way to learn. It’s free to play and has a great tutorial to learn the basics.

If you’re interested in learning but can’t make this session come in and we’ll give you some learn to play decks to take home and learn with friends.
