We will learn “gateway” games (games which are easy to learn and play in a short amount of time) and put our skills to the test as we play against each other. We are in the Golden Age of Board Games. Take your seat at the table and enjoy a relaxing, stimulating, and friendly day of gaming. Class limit: 8
