About this week's games:
BANG! The Dice Game
A new take on a classic, BANG! The Dice Game combines the tense, social deduction of BANG! with Yatzhee-style dice rolling and asks you to put your faith in your luck and your intuition to survive the wild west.

You'll have to sniff out your enemies, roll just right, and survive the natives, who are understandably miffed about that whole genocide thing.

A light social deduction dice game for 3 to 8 players, each round of BANG! The Dice Game takes only 15 minutes.

MYSTERIUM
Years ago a murder took place. An act of cruelty that echoes through time, leaving a lost spirit aching to know the truth of their end. On All Hallows Eve a team of psychics and mediums descend on the mansion to uncover the dark secrets hidden in the walls using the greatest tool at their disposal: Abstract imagery!

Mysterium almost single-handedly popularized asymmetrical gameplay with the mainstream board game audience and creates a delightful an immersive experience unlike anything else. One player takes on the role of the ghost, trying to communicate several possible theories of what could have happened to them to the intrepid mediums. The trouble is that the trauma of their grisly end has left the spirit unable to speak, instead only able to communicate using the game's 84 gorgeous vision cards.

Follow your leads, piece the story together - Clue-style - prove your psychic mettle by betting on how it really happened, and then work together to set the poor spirit free!

Mysterium is a fast, easy to learn moderate strategy cooperative game that takes anywhere from 2 to 8 players! Halloween night lasts about 45 minutes, but the game's beautiful art, engaging concept, and collaborative fun are sure to cast their shadow over the entire night of fun.

Tabletop Game Night

The Brooklyn Strategist

$5.00

Every Saturday night we run Games With Strangers. Grab a drink or dinner, meet some new people, and learn a new game. Our game expert will teach you our featured games for the night and introduce you to your fellow players.

We run games of all levels, from the lightest of the light to the ones that need four hours and a book. Each week we feature two games. Run a kingdom, build a farm, assemble your heroes, or craft the best story, but, whatever you do, come do it with us.

NOTE: Due to the pandemic (the slow, creeping nightmare that has become our lives, not the award winning board game) we respectfully ask that attendees make sure to RSVP to Games With Strangers. If we do not have enough RSVPs to fill a game by noon on game day, that night's event will be cancelled, so sign up early and let's break some attendance records!
