Otafest Board Game Room - Friday

Otafest is an annual Asian animation and cultural festival happening at the University of Calgary. This year, we are doing a test run of anime-themed board games at Otafest to broaden tabletop gaming to the Otakus of the world (otaku = anime geek). We really want to pack the room so we can look into doing it on a larger scale next year. We are focusing mainly on Puzzle Strike, Tsuro, Takenoko, and King of Tokyo, but we do intend to have other anime/asian style games as well for the events. We have 3 - 2 hour time slots (one each day of Otafest weekend, that we will probably run over time on most days), for which people can come play and try out our selection of games.

If you are planning to attend the convention, we would love to see you there. Come early and help us start something uniquely different.

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.
