Seeking Dungeon Masters!

We are actively seeking DMs for an exciting new format of D&D Encounters, coming soon to Game Universe – Greenfield. With D&D 5E releasing in just a couple weeks, we want YOU to bring your DMing skills to our tables.

Interested DMs will need to make a 3 month commitment, will receive the adoration of their players, and the proceeds of a special GM program designed to get DMs and GMs free materials for their games. Interested? Email Matt at

D&D Encounters is an exciting, weekly campaign that plays out one epic encounter at a time. As you defeat enemies, solve puzzles, finish quests, and perform heroic deeds, you’ll earn Renown Points that you can use to get exclusive rewards. Each session only takes 1-2 hours to play, so it’s easy to fit your game in after school or work. And each week there’s a new and exciting challenge. Jump in anytime!

4-5pm, Character creation and overview for new players
5pm – 8pm Organized Play for all levels of experience

$2 GM fee per player
The GM fee goes to support the GM at YOUR table, helping pay for all the modules, minis and more that he or she brings to each game for you to use. As such, all of your money goes back to the GM at your table in the form of a gift card after the game.

This is an official Catalyst Agent event, designed to be friendly to new players, but fun for those already versed in Shadowrun 5th Edition. So jack in and join us for a night of fun and games!

M15 $99 Booster Box Sale & Win-A-Box Tournament

Our $99 box sale returns for M15 release day, this Friday, July 18, starting at noon. As always, buying a box from your local game store gets you a free Buy A Box Promo.

When you buy a box from our new Franklin location (sorry folks, only at Franklin), you also get free entry into one of our Buy-A-Box, Win-A-Box events at 2 pm or 6 pm.

What is a Buy-A-Box, Win-A-Box tournament?

First, buy a box from Game Universe Franklin. Next, open your box at the store. 
You then build a sealed deck from it, using whatever cards you want, in whatever amounts they appear in your box. Then we play 3 rounds of Sealed, and every undefeated player wins an additional booster box of Magic 2015 boosters. Since it’s a Release Day FNM Event, you also get a Release Day Promo and a Buy-A-Box promo with your entry. If you’re going to buy a box anyway, this is the best way to do it.
