Games Day

When: Every Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Game day is pleased to announce the arrival of new games: Loaded Questions and Balderdash. Loaded Questions asks players to answer questions ranging from “What do you often make fun of?” to “What profession do you admire, but would never want to do?”  It’s a funny, engaging game that allows players to get to know others, all while having a riotous good time.  In Balderdash, players create fake definitions of real English words and then guess the correct definition.  Players gain points by getting the correct definition, or by having others choose theirs.  Playing Balderdash reliably ensues in hilarity and new social connections.   So come join the fun, every Saturday.  You are also welcome to bring a game to share! Board Games, cards, dominos and GREAT COMPANY!
