The SSOG will have a booth setup at this event. We'll be promoting the group as well as board gaming in general. Details of the event below.


NightLab was designed for adults to enjoy an evening out and explore scientific concepts while having a great time. Our first event, NightLab: Brainfreeze, was a huge hit as guests explored the body’s most complex organ – the brain!
