  • Board Games Evening

    Auer & Co.

    It's nice from time to time to meet in Zurich as well as we cannot always be in the mountains, and board games are a good way to get together :) Let's meet at 6pm at Auer & Co, where we will have a big table (or a private room if we're lucky). We will bring a few games like Dixit, Ticket to Ride, Azul, Dobble, Codenames... You are also more than welcome to bring your own games! This is a free of charge event but as we organise regular board games evenings and always bring our games, a small contribution in cash on the day would be much appreciated to help us buy more games!
