Rum Runners and Master Dater Events ( have teamed up to bring you Thirsty Thursday Game Nights! Every Thursday I will be bringing my massive board game collection to Rum Runners for your gaming enjoyment!

This is a super fun event for people who are new in town and new to meetup! It's a great way to meet new people - especially if you're a little on the shy side :) There's nothing like bonding over a good game of Cards Against Humanity!

**Please note we typically get 40-50 people
attending this event every week**

Here are some more details below:

What Can I Expect?
Thirsty Thursday Game Night will be taking place at Rum Runners in Downtown Raleigh from 8PM to 10PM. This event will be open to everyone - both singles and couples alike. When you arrive you will give us a $1 board game fund donation (it helps to fund our board game collection/habit!) and grab a goodie bag-and mardi gras beads if you're single! From there, you can opt to choose a board game from our "Board Game Library" or walk around and join a game in progress.

What Games Will Be Provided?
A complete list can be found here (

August Game of the Month

Bears! is a fast-playing, competitive game in which you score points by pairing dice. Shoot bears and run from tents for a few points, or take a risk and score big by sleeping through the attack! But watch out! If Bears are left at the end of the round, your sleeping campers are done for!

Can I Bring My Own Board Game to Play?
Yes! In fact, the more games the merrier! Just make sure your board games are labeled with your name!

Does Rum Runners Serve Alcohol?
Duh, of course they do! In fact, on Thursday nights at Rum Runners - ALL DRINKS ARE $3.50. Yup, that's right. ALL DRINKS. Rum Runners does not serve food though, so be sure to grab a bite to eat before you head over! And please remember to drink responsibly!

Is this a Singles Event?
No, this is a social event that is open to everyone. Since there will be singles attending, Master Dater ( will be distributing Mardi Gras beads to all the singles in the room - just a fun way to meet fellow singles ;-)

**Because of this event's popularity, please note that this event has been cross-posted on other meetup groups to give more people a chance to attend. We apologize in advance if you receive multiple emails.**
