Going Cardboard Trailer

Going Cardboard is a documentary about the American adoption of German-style board games, and includes coverage of the 2009 board game event Spiel in Essen, Germany, as well as interviews with many prominent game designers. The film was written, directed and produced by Lorien Green, who was introduced to board gaming by her husband, and the film was financed through the crowd funding service Kickstarter.

"Do you have fond childhood memories of gathering around the table with the family for a game of Monopoly, Scrabble, or LIFE?

Cardboard is making a comeback.

In an era of tech-based entertainment, word is spreading about a new breed of board game. Going Cardboard takes you into the designer "German-style" board gaming scene, from its community of enthusiastic fans to the creative passions of the designers and their journeys from concept to reality."

    This is "First Come First Seated" (35-40 seats, open to other groups and regular and walk in customers as well). I do not limit attendees since some people RSVP Yes and keep spots and never show up. I don't want to close event for those who really want to attend. Door opens 6:30pm and film starts 7pm. If you want to attend but can not arrive early, please post message and I will do my best to save seats for those. For reference, I keep track of "no shows" for my events so I don't offer to save spots for no show repeaters. I completely understand weather, work, sickness, etc can cause changes, so as long as RSVP is changed even last min or "I can't attend" is post, I don't take it as "no show". Even after event start time, message post works to show your intention, so I appreciate it and it really helps to keep event organized. I do not want to be too strict with RSVP but I want to accommodate those who want to attend and as long as we have space, I want to welcome walk-ins and guests, of course. So please und
