    Large Events

    Please call for details

    Group problem-solving. Outside-the-box creative thinking. On-the-spot improvisation when a plan goes astray and you’re facing down a fire-breathing dragon. Are these the types of challenges facing a typical company or an adventuring party? We’d argue both are true (though the dragon may depend on your line of work), and that the skills used to solve such problems in Dungeons & Dragons can be put to use in the workplace as well. 

    We’ll custom-tailor our corporate events to fit the needs of your company, whether it’s one evening of gaming or multiple days of education (and fun). Options include workshops, lectures, team-building activities, and our multi-table adventure known as the “epic” in which multiple groups of players simultaneously participate in the same adventure run by multiple Game Masters — where the actions of one group can influence the challenges another faces and vice-versa.

    Additional Details:

    • 5-50+ players.
    • We come to you! Anywhere in Greater Los Angeles.
    • We bring everything! Maps, minis, character sheets, and more!
    • Custom-written adventures made to fit your company or event available for an additional cost, please call for details!
