2014 Windsor Gaming Resource Holiday Boardgame Bash - Friday December 12th

Join us at the Green Bean Windsor Star News Cafe at 6pm on Friday December 12th for our second annual Holiday Boardgame Bash!

What better way to celebrate the holidays than by playing some games with friends? This is a free, all ages, open gaming event. It's an excuse to get together one more time before all the holiday craziness starts. It's a chance to try out some new games and find stuff to add to your wish list. It's a great chance to discover the perfect gift for the gamer that has everything.

Door Prizes

We can't have a holiday party without some presents. So in addition to the usual open gaming we will have some cool gaming related door prizes. All you need to do to have a chance to win one of these is show up and play at least one game. I've also got a Mammoth for the first 30 people who show up.

Hidden Gaming Gift Exchange

Bring a gaming related gift to join in the Gaming Gift Exchange. This is completely optional but it's a lot of fun so I recommend everyone take part.

Here's how it's going to work:

Everyone who wants to participate brings a wrapped gaming related gift. These will all be put out on display at the Cafe. The exchange will take place at around 8pm (we'll let people in the middle of games finish up if possible). At that time everyone will receive a random playing card. Then we will draw one card and the first person will pick one of the gifts and open it. Going forward every subsequent person will have an option: open a new gift or "steal" one of the gifts already opened. If your gift is stolen you then get the same choice, open a new gift or "steal" one that's already opened (but no stealing back what was just taken from you). Finally, the player who goes first is at a disadvantage as they have no steal option at the start. To offset that. If no one ever steals from the start player, at the end of the game they can swap their gift with any other person.
