New Years Eve Countdown Party with Trivia and Boardgames (organic)

We will be celebrating at Pizzeria Ludica. It is near the stadium station next to T&T. There will be board games available and Trivia questions every hour.

If they're charging a cover charge at the door. Just say you're part of "Extremely Shy" and there will not be any covercharge. Please buy something as the venue is opening for us free of charge to celebrate new years. 

At regular intervals throughout the evening the owner will hold a trivia game, asking several questions. Participating tables compete, and the table with the most points wins either one free game, or desserts for everyone at the table!

Host Expectations: 

This is an "organic" + "no frills" loose event that has no structure or theme. You may or may not have a host at your table but that shouldn't stop you from joining in on boardgames and meeting people. Feel free to come as you like, sit anywhere and meet anyone and have a fun time. Everyone is invited to connect with one another at this party.

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.
