(Voiced by Michael Clarke Duncan)  “And on the eighth day god created board games, so that man would have something to do while drinking.”

If you’ve ever drank to much Nog and flipped the Monopoly board, this is the event for you! Brew & Board Games is an event created to bring adult gamers and local game developers together over a frosty beer. We all need a little hobnobbing in our lives, so I ask, why not do it while learning an awesome new board game? We’ll be rocking this shinding every third Thursday at a local brewery until the zombie apocalypse. We have a raffle with some great prizes, happy hour drink specials, and each developer is bringing a game to showcase & teach. So come for for the fun, stay for the games, and leave sober enough to get home safe!

No party poopers invited.
