Droplabs is happy to host the Downtown Los Angeles Chess Club on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 7pm-12am. Drop by, bring your board and settle in for a night of board games, strategy and fun.
What should I bring?
BYOB! (Bring Your Own Board)
Be the person who makes it possible for others to play! Two or more people can play for each one person brings a game, chess set, etc. If you bring more than one, even better!
Droplabs has a tea kettle, an espresso machine and a refrigerator stocked with drinks. If there's interest, we can place a food order from any of the restaurants in the area that deliver to Droplabs.
What does it cost?
This event is FREE. Donations for the venue are graciously accepted.
Is this event only for chess?
You're welcome to bring other board games! Our venue has plenty of room for everyone. In the past we've hosted card games, Go, Carcassonne, and others.
