Roll 4 Dunedin

We are proud to bring you the inaugural Roll 4 Dunedin event at The Game Store. This event is all about playing Role-Playing Games and we're really looking forward to seeing you all at this amazing event. We will be holding Roll 4 Dunedin on the 24th and 25th of July.

The weekend will be 2 days of various role-playing games across 5 different time slots, each lasting 3 hours. Games will be hosted for players of all levels, with brief descriptions of the games being posted once we’ve confirmed the Game Master (GM). Descriptions of the games will be posted at the bottom of this page as our GM’s send them through.

Instead of paying for the full event, players will pay for each individual time-slot they’re interested in, ensuring that you aren’t paying more than your moneys’ worth, and that we have accurate numbers to create games that aren’t too large, or too small. Tickets for each game will be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis, with a waiting list if some players are unavailable, with games aiming to be 3-5 players (plus the GM).

If you are interested in being a DM for us then please get in contact by clicking the link below. We need your help to ensure that all of our players have an amazing time and you will be compensated for your time!
