Come check out a game of bluffing, deduction and cute cats at our Indie Game Night tomorrow! It's just one of 6 games you'll get the chance to play.

Indie Board Game Demo Night

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-demo-night-tickets-45584444300

Grab your tickets now for our 3rd ever indie board games showcase night! You'll have a chance to play games made by local individuals and companies, chat with their designers, and meet other board-game-loving folk.

Tickets are $10 but come with a token good for a free beer of your choice at one of the best local breweries you've ever (or possibly never) heard of: Down the Road in Everett, MA.

What games will be there? There's Moonquake where you're aliens trapped on a prison planet fighting over the one rocket that can get you out of there before the place blows up. There's Clubhouse Defense Squad where you're a team of children defending their clubhouse from the most evil bad guys imaginable. There's Fellowship, which is kind of like Lord of the Rings meets Secret Hitler, as you all quest to Mordor but must worry which members of your team have been corrupted by the ring.

There's Shrodinger's Cats, which combines bluffing, deduction and cute cat pictures with famous feline physicists such as Sally Prride and Neil deGrasse Tabby. There's Mission to Planet Hexx, a retro-style game of space adventure and exploration, where the galaxy is unfolding as you play and complete your missions. And finally, there's Knuckle Sammich, where you are a Kobold trying to tooth and claw your way to a full belly by grabbing the last few sandwiches, but along the way, you may just give up the pretense of making sandwiches and eat your friends instead.

Tell us you don't want to come to this. Buy your ticket here before they're all gone:

BoardGame Speed Dating...

What if looking for a partner was actually fun?

A few spots are still open for our event this Wednesday at the Friendly Toast. Over the course of two hours you play classic games you love and new ones you've never heard of with a range of single people. At the end, you write down the name of anyone you met that you like. If they put your name down too, we send you each other's e-mail address and you can schedule a time to go out.

In short: meet fun people, discover new board games and have fun.

BoardGame Empire's first convention! Thanks to the fine folks at Perk for putting on an awesome event. We met tons of cool companies and can't wait to bring board game parties to each and every one of them!

While his opponents were fighting over the largest army, Josh Wilson was staking out his victory. Our 2018 Settlers tourney featured a kid who could solve rubik's cubes in 50 seconds, a heated battle for a wild card entry into the finals that culminated with a barenuckled rock-paper-scissors match and, of course, plenty of sheep. But Josh Wilson won back-to-back games to emerge as our first tournament champion at Down the Road Brewery. He joins a hallowed list of victors in our Hall of Champions: http://www.playboardgameempire.com/hall-of-champions

What? This isn't what you bring to work on a regular Wednesday? Our Settlers of Catan tournament is tonight. We have 15 people signed up but thanks to some newly purchased 5-6 player expansions, we can squeeze in a few more.

If any of you have ever come to our Dungeons & Dragons for First Time Players Nights, then you know Seamus, the delightful game lover who runs them. Well, he also runs this great website, and they'd love to get some new contributors. Check them out!

We're always looking for more (and more varied) contributions . . .

We are updating our Jenga game by writing rules onto certain blocks. So, for example, you might pull one block that says "Must play rest of game left-handed" or "Put this block onto pile with your eyes closed and player on your right giving you verbal directions. If the pile is knocked over, you both lose." Still not really sure how we're going to fit that last one on a block. But the point is, we are looking for other ideas. Anyone got some fun ideas for things to write on the blocks?
