Throwback Thursday Game Night @ Sharkys Place
Come on out to Sharky’s Place in Raleigh from 7pm to 10pm for Throwback Thursday Game Night! This is by far our biggest party event every week! In addition to access to’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 30-50 people for this event, so we often have a very big 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 guy or girl wearing the black 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! 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 ( 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 ([masked]) 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. 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! How Can I Sign Up to Play a Demo of the Game of the Month? When you arrive, tell the organizer know you want to play a demo of the game of the month. Once we get enough interested players they will start the demo! 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 ( Also, click here ( 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 Does the +30 on the Meetup RSVP Mean? Many people attend this event outside of meetup (and even more show up without RSVP'ing) so we often update the Meetup RSVP with a (+30) to reflect an estimate of the actual number of attendees. What is your current Game of the Month? Unfair
