Board & Card Games Marathon @ West LA -- April 28

  • April 28, 2012 · 12:00 PM
  • St. Bede's Church


Everyone is welcome to join us for board games and card games!  This is an all-day event, so feel free to come for a quick game or two, or stay for the long haul.

Come check out some of the best games you've never heard of: build ancient empires, escape from a pirate fortress, spell words to steal letters, collect chameleons, race robots, battle zombies, connect railroads, and more!  We'll have TONS of board games & card games to choose from (well, it feels like tons when we're unloading the car!).  You're also welcome to bring your own games to share. 

We'll have game captains on hand to introduce members and explain rules, so don't worry if you haven't heard any of these games. Part of the fun is learning! Board games are a great "thinking person's relaxation" and offer much funny and odd fodder for conversation.

WHO?
This event is great for newcomers and veterans alike. Meet some new friends, bring a friend or three if you like, and get ready to have some fun! 

TIME?
The event starts at NOON and goes til 9 PM. There will be a prize drawing at 5 PM and we'll round out the evening with a large game of Werewolf.

COST?
$10 adults, $5 for kids 12 and under.

ANYTHING ELSE?
There are plenty of places to grab food nearby. People tend to get dinner between 5 and 6 (after the prizes and before Werewolf).  We'll have some snacks for sale.

Hope you can join us!

    I was skeptical of the fee at the door, at first, but it was totally worth the admission price. I'll be happy to be a regular attendee (though I'll probably miss May...). Thanks, everyone!!!

    Only ::THE:: most epic end to Werewolf ever at tonight's Games Day....... From 29 people to just 3. And with my special role as The Hunter, with my dying breath, I got to kill off one of two people - Dan or Doug - an innocent or an evil werewolf..... I had trusted Doug, but then he started to look flustered while Dan looked still cool as a cucumber. I started to doubt. And after great agonizing over the decision, I chose to kill Dan.......and when I picked wrong, 30 people around us all shouted at the same time: "Nooooooooooo!!" Evil, evil nerves-of-steel Werewolf Dan. I will never live this down.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
