Throwback Thurs Game Night @ Sharky's Place
Come on out to Sharky’s Place in Raleigh from 7pm to 10pm for Throwback Thursday Game Night! In addition to access to TriangleGameNight.com’s giant board game collection totaling over 75 games, you will also have free reign to enjoy the following awesome-ness: legit pool tables, 2 complete cornhole sets, a Giant Jenga set, and Sharky’s impressive giant Connect4 set. You are welcome to arrive early to hang out, play some pool or darts and eat before Game Night officially begins. Following Game Night, starting at 10pm guests start gearing up for Karaoke! Don’t feel like singing? No worries, stick around after game night ends and play a game of pool while watching others sing their hearts (or lungs) out! Please note that we typically have a turnout of 30+ people for this event, so we often have a great crowd. Frequently Asked Questions How Does This Event Work? You will arrive to the event and check-in with your Game Night host (look for the girl wearing the black TriangleGameNight.com shirt). 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! Is This Event Really Free? Yes! However, as a courtesy, we do ask that you purchase something from our awesome venue while you enjoy your games. And please don't forget to take care of your server! What Games Will Be Available? We bring 75 games on a regular basis. Our total collection in storage is over 250 games (you can click here (https://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/trianglegamenight)for a complete list of games in our collection). If there's anything on that list that you would like to play but do not see it at Game Night, email us (erindunphy@gmail.com) and request it and we'll make sure it's there for you next week! We add at least one new game to the collection every month, and run demos on a featured game throughout the month. Can I Request a New Game to be added to the Collection? Yes, absolutely. We often add new games to the collection. We typically choose games with a wide appeal or that are the most requested. Email us your suggestion and we'll add it to our list. If other members request it as well you might see it at an upcoming game night! How Can I Sign Up to Play a Demo of a Game? When you arrive, sign up on our demo sign up sheet. If we reach the minimum number of players needed to start the game, the demo will begin at 8:30pm. You will need to meet your Game Night Host at the check-in table at 8:30pm then he/she will take you to the demo area. Can I Bring My Own Board Game to Play? Yes! In fact, the more games the merrier! Also, whatever games you bring, you are welcome to keep playing after 10pm. Just make sure your board games are labeled with your name! Does Sharky's Place Serve Alcohol and Food? Yes! You can view a copy of their menu by clicking here (http://www.sharkysnc.com/menu.php). Also, click here (http://www.sharkysnc.com/specials)to view the specials for the day. Their food and drinks are super yummy and very affordable. I'm New in Town/Recently Single - Would it be weird if I attend this event alone? Absolutely not! This is a GREAT event for people who are new to meetup, new in town or recently single. It's a great way to meet new people and super low key! What is your current Game of the Month? Joking Hazard.

What we're about

Public Group

If you're a graduate student, young professional or just someone looking to meet new people and make new friends, this group is for you! It's hard to make new friends when you only see the same set of people every day. This group's purpose is to get you out of the house and do some fun stuff with other people! We currently host weekly events in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Cary -- and other events pop up all around the triangle. So join the group, we'll do a little bit of everything!
