Indie Board Game Showcase

We're adding Gamewright games to the list of designers demoing at our indie board game showcase tomorrow at @NightShiftBeer. Come play Trash Panda, where you're raucous raccoons competing to stash the best trash. Is the art work adorable? Of course it is. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

Indie Board Game Showcase

Jay Bucciarelli's been busy since our last showcase night, building three--count 'em THREE-- games over the last few months. Tomorrow he'll be showing off Burned, a fast-paced dice-rolling, sand-timer-flipping game pitting rival chefs against each other as they compete to prepare the best dishes and sabotage the opposition! Just one of 10 games we'll have at our indie board game showcase at Night Shift Brewing: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

We met the designers of Schism at BFIG last year, and we instantly knew their game would be a great fit for our Indie Showcase. You're rival churches competing to best indoctrinate the masses in a game that combines trick-taking with modern gaming elements to create something really cool. Try this game and more at our indie game designers event at Night Shift Brewing this Tuesday: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

Indie Board Game Showcase

Four more game designers added to the slate for our indie board game showcase night at Night Shift Brewing this Tuesday! That brings the total to 10! Play cool new games, meet the designers, drink delicious beer and eat yummy handpies all for the stupid-low price of $10.

eventbrite.com You're a board game lover. Getting a text that reads "game night at my place" fills you with a joy that most people only experience at Christmas and Game of Thrones season premieres. And yet you haven't played every game. Out there lies an entire world full of tabletop competitions you've never even...

We asked Jeff Johnston if he had made any new games since our indie showcase last year. Turns out he made two.

That's right, while the rest of us lazily spent our free time watching Netflix, he banged out two brand new games. Battle to become the leaf-pile jumping champ of the neighborhood in Leaf Me Alone! Or work together to help all the bears hibernate so you cubs can play all season long in Bearly Asleep. We'll have these games and more at our indie showcase night this Tuesday at Night Shift Brewing: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

We first became aware of Cheer Up! about six months ago and we've been itching to showcase it at an event ever since. It's everything you could want from a party game: Fun, easy to learn, silly, goofy and there's an adorable dog for a mascot. You make the jokes, but you also make the rules too.

Check out this game and more at our indie board game showcase at Night Shift Brewing this coming Tuesday: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

One game we are very excited to showcase at our indie game designers night at @NightShiftBeer is Midnight Riders. It's a competitive supernatural biker gang battle with players turning into monsters. Tell us you don't want to play that! Grab a ticket now: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

When we get a group of people looking for a fun party game, one of our absolute go-to recommendations is Anomia. It's a fun, easy-to-learn game that gets you shouting wildly at your friends in no time (and we mean that in the best possible way). It's won a bunch of awards and even been honored by MENSA. And guess what, it turns out the guy who invented it lives right here in Boston. It's just one of the awesome games we'll be demoing at our indie game designers showcase next week at Night Shift Brewing. Grab your ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/indie-board-game-showcase-tickets-55297396000

We are excited to announce that you can now buy tickets for any upcoming BoardGame Empire event at Knight Moves Cafe in Brookline! (Don't worry, you can also still buy them on our website: www.playboardgameempire.com)

For those of you unfamiliar, Knight Moves is a board game cafe with about 1000 board games on their shelves. You pay a few bucks at the door and then can play games for hours upon hours with your friends, all while sitting in a nice cafe that serves yummy treats. It's a really cool place and we're pumped to be partners with such a great business.

We've got an indie board game showcase night Feb. 26, and board game speed dating nights each of the next two Wednesdays. Why not drop by Knight Moves, play some board games and buy some tickets?

BoardGame Empire recognizes greatness in any game and that's why we are proud to give a hearty congratulations to the New England Patriots for winning yet another Super Bowl. Just because you make the challenging look routine doesn't mean we should take it for granted. Congrats on number 6.

Here at BoardGame Empire, we celebrate greatness at games of all kind. Even when they don't fit on a table. Congratulations to the New England Patriots for making the amazing look routine and going to yet another Super Bowl. Best of luck in Atlanta boys and game on!
