We're back for another HUGE day of board games and card games.... and everyone is welcome! This is an all-day event, so feel free to come for a quick game or two, or stay for the long haul.
If the only games you know are Monopoly, Scrabble, and Trivial Pursuit, you're in for a treat! Come check out some of the best games you've never heard of: build ancient empires, escape from a pirate fortress, 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 loading the car!). You're also welcome to bring your own games to share.
We'll have game captains on hand to lead games, 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.
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! IT'S OKAY TO "JUST SHOW UP"!
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 (a social game about figuring out who you can trust and who is secretly plotting against you. Lots of fun--see the picture below!)
$10 adults, $5 for kids 12 and under.
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 to see you there!
