Monsterpocalypse is a fast-moving, action-packed battle miniatures game played with detailed hobby miniatures that players assemble and paint to portray the most fearsome giant monsters on Earth!
When the battle begins, you’ll command your monster and lead your units into the city to hunt down and destroy your opponent’s monster. Your monster and units each have weapons and abilities that are activated by special dice to help you achieve ultimate victory.
Monsters can increase their power throughout the game by smashing buildings and destroying enemy units. When two monsters fight each other, the results are devastating – they can throw each other across the city, rampage through buildings, and suplex each other into radioactive rubble! The last monster standing wins the game.
Join volunteer Brian ‘Tolo’ on Tuesday nights from 6:30-9:00pm to explore this awesome miniatures skirmish game!

REMEMBER: Our Constructed games follow Dice Masters Tournament rules. Each player selects a maximum of eight Characters or Action Cards, and 20 corresponding dice. They also select two Basic Action Cards. Constructed games are played at 20 life. Rounds last 30 minutes and then are judged based on life totals.
A player may not bring two characters with the same name, even if they have different subtitles (i.e. Wolverine: Wanted, and Wolverine: Canucklehead).
NEVER PLAYED? No worries! Andrew Miller will be running the event and can teach you everything you need to know to get started. Plus, many of our top players started not too long ago and love introducing new players to the game!
WHAT IS DICE MASTERS? Basically, it’s like a trading card game, but with dice! In Dice Masters, two players take the role of masterminds directing the actions of a team of powerful supers (represented by dice) to battle each other! Each turn, you’ll roll your dice to see what resources you have available, buy dice, send your team members into the field, and then strike at the enemy mastermind. Reduce the opposing mastermind’s life to zero, and save the day!
Dicemasters is a dice-building game (similar to deck-building card games) where players collect and assemble their team of character dice and battle in head-to-head gameplay.
The Maryland Gunpla Club is a place for nerdy modelers and hobbyists, be it Gundams, Zoids, Star Wars, or even normal vehicles. We meet every Thursday now!
