Play the Bay - Board Game Night - Brewcade

Brewcade

Board games. Arcade games. Beer. What could be better? Play the Bay and Brewcade are joining forces to bring you SF's most exciting night of gaming! Far flung from just adding points and waiting your turn, come prepared to laugh, cheer, and point fingers. And when you swear your best friend has burned you for the last time in The Resistance, shake it off with a few rounds of pinball or Pac-Man! Don't play games? Don't play board games? Haven't touched a piece of cardboard outside of an Amazon package in a decade? You're fine. We'll find a game that sounds good and we'll get you started. No need to ever read a rule book. Come discover something strange and beautiful with us!

RPG & Story Game Night

Victory Point Cafe

A night of collaborative storytelling and exploration. We'll be focusing on games that fall somewhere between your favorite TV show and your favorite painting. If you're still in your long running D&D campaign and want to try a different sort of RPG, we've got you covered. If you're already an avid fan of indie RPGs and want to get more play into your schedule, then come join us. If you've never played any of these games, but want to know what all the fuss is about, the only way is to grab a seat and experience it yourself. Join us! We focus on indie games. Some have a GM, but many don't. Either way, we'll have someone at the table who can guide you through the rules and help get everything rolling. Each night has a slightly different menu of games - please see the discussion section. We focus on one-shots that are complete experiences in a single night, so games and systems change every week! RSVPing helps us schedule enough facilitators. We will begin game sign-up at 6:30 and gameplay will begin by 7. If you show up after this point, we cannot guarantee that you will get into a game, so try to be on time! Also, Victory Point is graciously waiving their standard entry fee for this event - so please show them your appreciation by making a purchase of food and drink. Menu here: https://www.victorypointcafe.com/pages/menu If you'd like to see a fuller guest list or discussion of the event we're much more active on Facebook. The event is here https://www.facebook.com/events/321296348552868/ We love these games and can't wait to share them with you!
