The Valley Nerd Watch!


Happy Holidays, folks! We’re at home hanging out with our great mom, we hope you’re also having a good time.

Take it easy, it’s dark out and we’re pretty confident saying we’ve all had a bit of a year.

We’re gonna deal with it by playing RPGs with friends and going to the movies with our mom!

Movie Night: The Nut Job 2
This is a kids movie sequel of dubious quality, but that’s not what’s important. It’s the tagline. “Nutty by Nature”. The literal only thing that could refer to is the hip-hop group “Naughty by Nature”, which had a hit single in the song O.P.P., in 1991. This is, to say the least, a strange tagline for a recently release children’s movie.
Forbes Library [20 West St, Northampton, MA 01060] at 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Holiday Penguin Party!
A holiday penguin party with local author Eric Bennett as he reads his penguin-related book Noodles & Albie’s Birthday Surprise! He’s also going to talk about penguins, teach you to draw penguins, and have treats and giveaways! Recommended for penguins aged 4-9!

Thursday, December 28th
Jones Library [43 Amity St., Amherst, MA 01002] at 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Family Drive in Movie Night
Decorate your own cardboard cars and enjoy a screening of Cars 3! Whatever you do, don’t think about how many cars are almost certainly killed over the course of the film or how gruesome it would be if they weren’t anthropomorphic cars.

RPGs:

Wednesday, December 27th
Modern Myths [34 Bridge Street #4, Northampton, MA 01060] at 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Youngbloods Adventure Guild
A D&D club for players 8-12! You can become a member of this club by paying $50/mo. That gets you help with creating a character, a mini, a custom D&D session, and a set of dice! It’s the perfect way to play a fun game with friends! We recommend you play a bard. Actually everyone should play as a bard and you should be adventurers by day and a traveling band by night!
Thursday, December 28th
Modern Myths [34 Bridge Street #4, Northampton, MA 01060] at 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Youngbloods Adventure Guild
A D&D club for players 8-12! Play a god trapped in mortal form so whenever you need to retire the character you can explain to everyone that actually you were the toughest and best all along, notwithstanding that time you rolled three critical fails and tripped over your armor into a lava pit.
Modern Myths [34 Bridge Street #4, Northampton, MA 01060] at 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Dungeons and Dragons
Play one of the classic RPGs at Modern Myths! New players are always welcome, and there’s a friendly crowd there every week! We recommend playing fast and loose, since it’s a drop-in drop-out game, so worst case you can come back in a few months with your bard’s ‘long-lost estranged cousin who’s also a mage and much taller’.
