Board Games at Swarthmore Borough Hall

Needs a location

Board gaming. Friendly, mostly recently created "Eurogames," such as Ticket to Ride, Azul, and Code Names. Feel free to bring your own or just play the ones that are there. Rules will be taught; no prior experience necessary. It's primarily intended for adults, but kids are welcome as long as a parent stays with them. Note: most of our players aren't on Meetup, so attendance is usually 5-10 higher than the number who use Meetup to RSVP.

As of July 1st, Swarthmore no longer requires those inside Borough Hall to wear masks.
