October game night at Silver Key Lounge THIS THURSDAY!
Come on out for games, drinks(boozy and non-boozy), and fun! This is our monthly board game night and it’s always a blast. It’s been growing every month and we expect to start hitting pre-pandemic levels in a few months.
For you RPG cvltists, I (Jim) have run Mausritter before, but since this should be more about board games, I’ve decided to run the Conan board game! It’s basically a dungeon crawl/adventure game where there is a “GM” and a story line with players going on missions. It feels like an RPG, plays like a streamlined resource management game, and has a bunch of minis and cool map boards. It’s one of the coolest games we own!
On top of that, we have a bunch of other games to jump in on or you can run one yourself and make new friends.
Just be sure to spend some $ and show some love to Silver Key Lounge!

Our good friends over at the UAG are gearing up for Meeplefest, a 3 day smaller, cozy, convention in Mesa, AZ. We’ve been friends with the people from the UAG since their inception, and they always put on fun events!
Here’s the pitch:
Welcome Fellow Board Game Explorers to Meeplefest 2022: Lost Civilizations
Your excursion will take place from November 11th to the 13th in Mesa, AZ.
Some of the delightful things to look forward to on your excursion include:
- 3 days of non-stop board gaming. The event space will be open from 5PM Friday until 5PM Sunday. Thinking of traveling to Teotihuacán at 3AM on Saturday, have at it.
- Over 60 scheduled games throughout the weekend. New to gaming or looking for someone to teach you Lost Ruins of Arnak, scheduled gaming is the perfect way to learn something new or enter the hobby.
- $300 Worth of Prizes! We will have live raffles throughout the weekend giving away a selection of games and other prizes.
- Drinks and light snacks included during the convention. We will have water, soda and light snacks available for your munching pleasure, all included in your ticket price.

Silver Key Lounge is having a big ol’ Halloween Celebration 2022
From the Facebook Event:
Welcome to the 2022 Silver Key Lounge Halloween Party Event!!!
We will kick off activities starting at 6pm.
We will have horror themed games being demoed on each of the 5 big tables. You can sit down and play to earn prize drawing tickets as well as to just have fun experiencing the various horror games we are hosting.
We will also have the Silver Key Society Costume Contest. Top Prize is a $100 Gift Card and runner up is a $50 gift card.
Did we say prize drawings? Why yes, we did.
Every hour we will draw Halloween Treats to give to those lucky few that hold winning tickets. Prizes include games, gift cards, and more!
To earn tickets, you will receive 5 from your entry fee. You can earn 3 tickets from playing one of our hosted games for up to a total of 15 total tickets if you play all 5 games. You receive 3 tickets for wearing a costume, and 2 tickets for each item purchased during the event.
Winners must be present to claim prizes. If ticket drawn is not claimed during number calling, a new ticket will be called.
Entry fee is $25 per person. You can purchase your tickets at The Silver Key Lounge or online by scanning the QR Code listed in the comments section. You must show your ticket receipt at the door or email receipt on phone to enter. Tickets will be available at the door if seats are still available.
This is an all-ages event until 10pm. After 10pm, due to Arizona Liquor Law, all patrons under 21 must call it a night and vacate the Lounge.
Some of you may have noticed that on our social media, we have changed our logo.
We have said goodbye to the iconic “C” and have introduced what will be our new logo.
Why the change? Well, we have realigned our main conventions to focus on RPGS and decided to shift our love of board games to our game days and other conventions we help run such as Game On Expo.
The new logo incorporates different genres of gaming and also allows us to customize it by changing up the ‘d20’image.
There’ll be more detailed in a future blog post/podcast/TikTok where I will go into detail on the change, but for now, if you see this, you’ll know it’s Crit Hit.
Keep on Crit’n!
