Games Day - Ugly Holiday Sweater Edition! Board/Card Games & Trivia - Free!

  • Dec 14, 2013 · 3:00 PM

We've all received them at one point. That holiday or gift sweater that you never wore because you...uh...just didn't have the right event to wear it to! Well, now's the time!!! For this board game/card game event, wear your most "special" sweater! 

AMC Theater Movie Gift cards will be given to the people with:

• the ugliest overall sweater

• best matched couple (you don't need to actually be a couple, but you may actually match with another person)

• the most creative sweater (feel free to 'decorate' a sweater you already own to make it uniquely atrocious!)

• and, the most festive!

When you arrive, please ask for Daniel, who'll introduce you to other members of the group. From there, you can order some food/drink or you can simply get started on playing your favorite board games.

As for the room layout, there will be a number of different "Board Game" stations which are tables with different board games already set up - all you will have to do is pick a station and wait for some more players, or simply join a game already in progress!

The games that will be provided:

Decks of cards for Spades, Tonk, etc. • Uno • Taboo • Cards Against Humanity • Dominoes • Battle of the Sexes • Chess / Checkers • Connect Four • Cranium • Guesstures • Jenga • Scrabble • Trivial Pursuit • ...and yes, TWISTER! (There's plenty of room for it!)

There will also be some open tables for people who would like to bring their own games - feel free to bring your favorite.

Again, this event is free and you are not required to buy food or drinks, but Ruby's will have specials all day just for us! Let's help support them as they are supporting us for use of their space.

Directions to Ruby's

Ruby's is located on 106th Street, between 3rd Avenue & Lexington Avenue. The nearest subway station is the #6 train line to the 103rd Street. From the street, walk 3 blocks north, then make a right toward 3rd Avenue. Nearby bus lines include the M100, M101, & M102.

The event starts at 3pm and is officially over at 8pm, but may run a little longer, depending on energy/turnout/interest.

As always, feel free to call/text [masked] if you have any questions, running late, need additional directions, etc...

    With Metro North's track record, I better not take a chance with tomorrow's weather prediction. I guess Daniel is off the hook for my birthday drink. Have fun everyone!
