Try new board games while sampling a magical brew

Downstairs in “The Apothecary” of The Cauldon there will be board games aplenty to enjoy. Play an old favorite or try something new! While you’re there, enjoy a molecular cocktail meticulously crafted by The Cauldon’s bartenders using science (the magic of our world). You could spend the whole night down here, but if you’re looking for something truly unique, purchase a ticket for the upstairs event: Casters & Cantrips


D&D like you've never seen before! 

Casters & Cantrips is a ticketed, live, interactive Dungeons & Dragons campaign in which the audience affects gameplay and triggers new character abilities through Favor Tokens, magic wands, and other forms of audience interaction. 

Set in the modern magic of The Cauldron NYC, this event brings tabletop gaming to the next level. Enjoy fantastical food and beverages from the Cauldrons & Dragons specialty menu -- featuring some of The Cauldron’s signature Potions!

Whether you are an avid fan, a new fan, or just simply curious, we welcome you to this event co-presented by Active Player Network and The Cauldron NYC that is focused on audience inclusion and accessibility. 


Welcome to the World of Casters & Cantrips

Downtown, amidst the twists and turns of the guts of Manhattan, past the suits, the proliferation of chain coffee shops, and the swarms of bedraggled locals and lost visitors, there is a very old stone street.  

A tree stands on that stone street, around which a pub has been built.However, this is no ordinary pub - far from it. It is a gateway to somewhere else, both closer than you can imagine and yet more alien than your wildest dreams. 

Welcome to The Feyde! 

Join us as we accompany four soon-to-be heroes through the root-wreathed door and into the magical floating city of Fai’Dai’, where a strange sickness has begun to spread through the Tree of Life - the root of all magic - and even threaten the future of New York itself!


How Does the Audience Interaction Work?

We’ve created items called Favor Tokens that allow you to affect gameplay and story progression while you watch! You receive a number of Favor Tokens with the purchase of a ticket, so you are automatically able to interact with the game. From there, you can receive more Favor Tokens with every purchase made from our specialty menu created for this event.

Your Favors can fill the flasks of our adventurers and give them access to new tiered abilities that increase in potency with the amount of favor you bestow!You’re encouraged to collaborate with fellow conspirators at other tables to consolidate your favor and create incredible results! 

 Tickets are available for the live, interactive event at The Cauldron NYC. Tickets include 1 free drink and a starting supply of Favor Tokens, and are available at: www.thecauldron.nyc/dnd. Can’t make it in person? This event will also be streamed on the Active Player Network Twitch channel: twitch.tv/activeplayernetwork
