Thursday Games

Please join us for our next gaming event!

The games we play are much different than the board games you played growing up. Some of them will give your brain a very satisfying workout due to the high level of strategy and low amount of luck. Others are totally dripping with theme (pirates, zombies, monsters, etc) that involve more luck and direct player conflict.

We have a growing collection of games on hand, but if you have a new (or old) boardgame you think fits the bill, by all means bring it along (as long as you'll teach us)!

So... let's have some fun rolling dice, placing tiles, or drawing cards - and enjoy some face-to-face interaction! It really isn't about whether you win or lose (at least not entirely). It is about having a great evening, trying to win some of the time, and always playing better the next time! smile

Just to be clear: we don't play Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Scrabble, Uno, Yahtzee, etc. Please see our  About Us page for more information on the types of games we play.

    David expressed interest in doing the "Days of Wonder" Theme Thursday some time in September, so I was going to bring Pillars of the Earth (worker placement) and Manhattan (former Spiel des Jahres winner) with me this week. Demos:

    Haven't seen a Theme Thursday in a while ... what about resurrecting that for August or September? I know that Days of Wonder has a new game, Relic Runners, coming out in September. What about doing a Days of Wonder Theme? A lot of people enjoy Ticket to Ride and Smallworld, but there is also Shadows over Camelot, Colosseum, Pirate's Cove, and Queen's Necklace. A lot of quality games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p10slIhHUKk . Anyone else have comments or ideas?

      I think this is a good idea, regrettably I don't own anything from Days of wonder so I can't contribute.

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.
