Green Bay Packer Spot It!If you purchased one of these from Gnome Games and would like to return it – please bring it in with your sales receipt and we will refund or exchange your Green Bay Packers Spot It! as we want you to be able to play the game.

GBE – Kill Team Campaign!

Gnome Games Kill Team Campaign

When: October 13th – December 15th
Where: Gnome Games Green Bay East
Cost: $5/player (covers the entire league)

What is the Kill Team Campaign

Each player will chose an army and begin the campaign with a total of 32 resources split into 4 categories. Using the rules outlined on page 63 of the Kill Team Core manual players will fight out 100 point matches using a “Battle-forged” Kill Team. The player that loses the mission will also lose some of their precious resources as determined by the scenario.

If any of your resource categories fall to 0 support from your faction is pulled! If this happens don’t fret you still may play league games but as part of the guerrilla faction! There are even special prizes for the guerrilla player that plays the most games!

When can I play?

Players are encouraged to play on Saturdays, however league games may be played any time during the week. Players should report their games and update their resource cards as their games finish. A league week runs from Saturday morning to the following Friday night.

Spoils of war! Fabulous Prizes!

Participation prizes are given out weekly, the first time a player checks in that week. These include “Tactics” cards that give players cool in-game benifits! In addition if you play at least one game each week in a 3 week period you get the following:

  • Oct. 13th – Nov. 2nd: Play in all 3 weeks to earn a pair of Kill Team Counter Spinners!
  • Nov. 3rd – Nov. 23rd: Play in all 3 weeks to earn a set of Unique Kill Team Dice!
  • Nov. 24th – Dec. 15th: Play in all 3 weeks to earn set of Unique Kill Team Objective Markers!

Also, at the end of each 3 week period, the player from each faction with the most remaining resources will receive a “Best in Faction” button to show off their tactical skills! If a player has lost their faction and are fighting for the guerrillas, they will be awarded the Best Guerrilla button if they have played the most games (only applicable in league section 2 and 3).

The Best Overall Kill Team (the single team with the most resource points) will be awarded a Prize Medal as follows:

  • Nov. 3rd – Nov. 23rd: Silver Medal
  • Nov. 24th – Dec. 15th: Gold Medal
  • Oct. 13th – Nov. 2nd: Bronze Medal

If you have any questions about the league, stop in and ask!

October 13th will be the league kickoff so come in and unleash some carnage!

D&D: Wednesday June at GBE

Play Dungeons and Dragons at Gnome Games

Wednesday Nights are for Adventure!

Play D&D at Gnome Games every week!

Every Wednesday night at Gnome Games Green Bay East‘s New location at 1683 East Mason Street we host 2-Hour beginner friendly D&D sessions! During June we will continue to play chapters from Tomb of Annihilation! Seating is limited so be sure to sign up in advance here. Tickets are on sale on 6 days prior to the event.

*Gnome Games Green Bay East‘s new location: 1683 E. Mason Street, Green Bay, WI 54302 (Next to Happy Joes!)

Tomb of Annihilation

Tomb of Annihilation
Join us every Wednesday!

Dare to defy death in this adventure for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

The talk of the streets and taverns has all been about the so-called death curse: a wasting disease afflicting everyone who’s ever been raised from the dead. Victims grow thinner and weaker each day, slowly but steadily sliding toward the death they once denied.

When they finally succumb, they can’t be raised—and neither can anyone else, regardless of whether they’ve ever received that miracle in the past. Temples and scholars of divine magic are at a loss to explain a curse that has affected the entire region, and possibly the entire world.

The cause is a necromantic artifact called the Soulmonger, which is located somewhere in Chult, a mysterious peninsula far to the south, ringed with mountains and choked with rainforests.

This is a beginner friendly event!
