Newbies Night is organised for newbie who wants to volunteer!
Requirement: We Teach You, You Teach Others.
Fee: Free (you pay it forward with community service)
Venue: Toa Payoh CENTRAL Community Club (TPCCC) (opp the library), 4th floor #04-01 (the room with the sofa and coffee machine)
Time: 7:30pm - 10pm (latest)
7:30pm - Icebreaking/ Party Games over coffee/mocha/milo (not the other way round)
8:15pm - VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY talk (compulsory)
8:30pm - We teach you an assortment of easy beginners games, and we play until 9:45pm, pack up, evacuate before
10pm - The CC staff chase us out.
OUR MOTIVE (don't say we never tell you): Our MOTIVE is that, after we happily taught you the games, you will be happy to contribute to our boardgames community by teaching the others. (basically, we are recruiting volunteers for Game On!)
After the Newbie Night, we will required you to join our closed-group on Facebook where we will spam invite and spam encourage you to help organise games activities for the community (eg. Games Sundays @ Libraries, Family Games Day, Games Sunday for Kids, Games GokON!)
and for the less fortunate (eg. Games Tours @ Children Homes, Old Folks Home etc).
And when you graduate from Newbie to Gamer, you can come help organise future Newbies Nights and even our Games Sundays. And become organisers for our Games Tours! And become our Game On Chairman!!! (we've got big plans for you)
If you are HAPPY with the above, quickly RSVP now, we try to keep it to 1 volunteer to 5 newbies (so that we can psycho you).
What Games To Expect: Click OUR GAMES! For ice-breaking/ beginners games, expect Ugly Dolls to Ubongo, Bang to Blokus, Snorta to Saboteurs. For gateway games (next time, not for this session), expect Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride etc. For heavy euro games, see HEW on the calendar.
