Boardgames played and taught. No fee. Family-friendly and open to the public. (Partial concessions available).
Bring the family! We want to show families some of the Next Step Games for your Family Game Nights! This isn't Monopoly, Scrabble, or the Game of Life! Bring some friends, too!
We play/teach family games, board games, party games, card games, etc. Tons of games will be available or bring your own.
Other activities*, contests, and soccer fields will also available!
* Soccer Ball Races were a hit at our last event, so they'll be back!
From the Fair Game (a terrific game store in Downers Grove, IL) website, a philosophy that our group shares:

"... re-discover the joy and wonder one experiences when interacting with other people over a simple game. In our age of iPhones, Xboxes and microwave ovens, we all need to take some time to refocus our priorities and engage with one another. Face to Face. Come... discover a new way of enjoying our fellow human beings... Our goal is to help people discover the joy contained within the box. A game is made not of the pieces inside, but the people outside."

Do you have a Family Game Night...?

And remember:
"We do not cease playing because we grow old, we grow old because we cease playing." ~ Joseph Lee
