We want you to come and play!
At Eckhart Public Library, we’re starting a monthly Tabletop Game Night, on the last Thursday of the month from 6-8 p.m. in the Close Community Room at the Main Library. The first event will be on January 29.
Tabletop games include board games, tile games, card games, and other games that can be played on a table or flat surface. And they’ve been getting really popular over the last few years.
We want to give people in the area an opportunity to play together and connect with other people who enjoy board games and other tabletop games! But Tabletop Game Night isn’t just for experienced game players. Tabletop game night is a great, low-stress way to try out a new game, too, or even to dip a toe in the ocean of tabletop gaming.
We’re planning to have a mix of games there, from games that require a lot of strategy to simpler, cozier games. The goal is that everybody will be able to find something that they can enjoy, whether they’re looking to give their brains a workout or unwind.
People who are just imagining games of Monopoly and CandyLand may be surprised, though. There are lots of great games for all ages, not just for children. A lot of the popular games coming out of Europe, like Ticket to Ride and Settlers of Catan, are very popular and a lot of fun, and more American game companies are getting in on this trend, too.
While some old favorites will probably make appearances, people will also get to experience new games they’ve never played or never even heard of, too! No registration is necessary for this event. People may bring games they wish to play, or they may play one of the games provided.
Eckhart Public Library also has a Family Game Night in the children’s department on the second Friday of the month from 4-6 p.m., and the last Friday of the month is Game Day at the Teen Library.
