Board Games

Our boardgame area is an excellent place to come and spend time.

We offer the following activities in 2018

  1. Learn to play
  2. Free play

Learn to play

We are going to set aside time each day to teach a game to any attendee who wishes to learn. Signup is not required. Just show up. Different games have different durations, so depending on the specific game this could mean we demonstrate anywhere from a few turns (if the game is slow) to several complete games (if the game is fast).

Free play

Any attendee is welcome to come and play any game in our library. You can play with friends family, or other attendees. If you find yourself needing one more player – our staff will be happy to fill in. If you need help with rules or getting started – our staff can help with that too.

Q: Will you help me win?
A: Yes.

Q: If I come in to the board game room do I have to play a game?
A: Of course not! You are welcome to come in and sit at any available table, regardless of if you are playing, observing, or just taking a few minutes to relax. All that we ask in return is that you remain flexible and work with us if we need an empty space to get a new game started.

Q: What if I need help learning to play a game and its not on the “Learn to play” schedule?
A: Our staff in the boardgame room will always be happy to help you out. The “Learn to play” events are intended to help people coordinate and plan their weekend. That said, we love board games and our staff is always willing to help explain rules, get you set up, or teach you how to play.

Q: Will you help me win?
A: Yes.

Q: Don’t some board games have an 18+ rating?
A: Correct, our policy is to set aside any games with an 18+ rating during the Amaicon day shift. For reference: The boardgame room day shift; 10am to 6:59pm and Night shift; 7pm to 2am.
