Unplugged: Summer Board Game Group

Four years ago Robin and I started a summer board game group. Generally, we start sometime in late May and run until early August. Of course, last year was tough with COVID causing us to not hold our usual sessions. This year we are going to give it a go again. While we understand not everyone is comfortable meeting face-to-face right now the bulk of our players have had vaccines and feel pretty comfortable meeting in our large basement. Don’t feel pressured to come though. If you are uncomfortable you can hop back in next year or when you feel comfortable.

We will be having theme nights every other week. That doesn’t mean you can’t choose other games. It just provides some directions so we don’t spend time wondering what we might play. The plan is to finish the season off with a one-day convention on Saturday August 7th that will take place all day. We will have a breakfast kick off and a cook off. Any other meals are on your own. We will have a few giveaways as well. You can sign up for game nights via RSVP here.

That says 57:32. We did it! And no family members we harmed in the process and we all still seem to love each other. 🙂 #breakoutroom ...

5.0 on my 50th! Trying to get this decade started off right with an Iowa City morning run. ...

Hey board game friends! I don’t do this often but...my former student and friend Adam Daulton has a board game on Kickstarter. How about giving it a backing? Just visit Kickstarter and search for Fall of the Mountain King. #boardgames #boardgamegeeks #fallofthemountainking ...
