We've been invited to the Carolina Ale House every Wednesday to host an awesome Game Night for Chapel Hill locals. Giant Jenga. Giant Connect4. Wii on a Projection Screen. 75+ Games. We'll have it all! Come out for the yummy food and cheap drinks, and stay for our Game Night.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Does This Event Work?
You will arrive to the event and check-in with Donald, your Game Night host (look for the guy wearing the black TriangleGameNight.com shirt). If you can, please make a $1 donation to our board game fund, as that helps us to add more games to the collection every month! After you have checked in, you are welcome to browse the Board Game Collection aka "The Library" and grab a game to play, otherwise walk around and join a game in progress if there's room. Once you finish playing a game, please return it to the collection then feel free to grab another!
