Stay-at-Home Play

Due to the current Stay-at-Home advisory in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts all three Battleground Games and Hobbies locations are currently closed. During this temporary closure we are exploring a lot of different ways to keep our community alive and vibrant. There many ways we can interact socially while we are all isolated from each-other physically. 

Please do join our Discord server at: – people are gathering there to talk about games, show off hobby progress, and even chat while they play board games and RPGs online. 

Wizards of the Coast has provided us ways to work with our community even when our stores are closed. For Magic the Gathering players we have codes for unique card backs for use in Arena to give away each Friday – check our Facebook and Discord for details. There are also a number of resources available for DMs and D&D players online – check out We will be providing D&D fans a way to order books through our web store soon.

For fans of painting and modeling we are running an ongoing casual event: the “Cabin Fever” competition. Choose any model in your collection and let your imagination run wild. Post modeling progress to our social media and when we re-open bring your completed work in to show it off.

We’re also streaming a lot on our Twitch channel and welcome folks to the chat there so we don’t feel so alone. – any subscriptions or bits there go directly to Battleground.
Most of all stay safe and well.  We look forward to seeing everybody when we have our grand re-opening!
