What we're about

Hi there, gamer! This meetup is for anyone who wants to join us at Knight Moves Somerville in Teele Square for open table gaming. That means you can come on your own and play with other individual players. Even if you've never played a board game before and just want to find out what all the fuss is about, you are more than welcome. We often organize a larger cooperative game or party game for the group, but smaller subgroups can split off and play any of our 300+ available board games. Admission for gaming is $5 Monday through Wednesday and $10 Thursday through Sunday. We've got coffee, tea, lattes, espresso, etc. but there is no alcohol allowed. Anyone who wants to play is welcome!

Ladies' Knight: Betrayal Edition!

Knight Moves Cafe Somerville

Ladies Knight is a night of gaming that focuses on and celebrates the awesome women in our gaming community. If you’re into board games (or would like to be) and you identify as a woman in a way that’s significant to you (or if you feel like this would be the most comfortable gaming night for you, and are respectful of the intent), come on down and hang out with us! We’d love to meet you. ***We have TWO copies now, so we can host up to TWELVE players!*** This micro meetup will involve an instructional session on how to play Betrayal at House on the Hill followed by a single game. It takes a while so keep that in mind! And we're hoping for a full table (and Micro meetups are restricted to the number who can play a game) so please only RSVP if you do intend to be there. If you are on the wait list, check back on the day of to see if anyone canceled and you were subbed in! The cover charge on Thursdays is $10 per person. Outside food is welcome (and you can get a discount at Broadway Eatery next door if you want to order there and eat here - ask Rachel about the secret code) but alcohol is not permitted. If this Micro Meetup doesn't work for you but you have a game you want to learn, let me know and we'll set something up! Have a game you love to play and are willing to teach? I'd love to put you on the calendar. Here's a link to BoardGameGeek's page for Betrayal at House on the Hill: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/10547/betrayal-house-hill And a little about the game: Betrayal at House on the Hill quickly builds suspense and excitement as players explore a haunted mansion of their own design, encountering spirits and frightening omens that foretell their fate. With an estimated one hour playing time, Betrayal at House on the Hill is ideal for parties, family gatherings or casual fun with friends. Betrayal at House on the Hill is a tile game that allows players to build their own haunted house room by room, tile by tile, creating a new thrilling game board every time. The game is designed for three to six people, each of whom plays one of six possible characters. Secretly, one of the characters betrays the rest of the party, and the innocent members of the party must defeat the traitor in their midst before it’s too late! Betrayal at House on the Hill will appeal to any game player who enjoys a fun, suspenseful, and strategic game.
