Games & Grub at the Windsor Star News Cafe - Oct 23rd


It's time for another Games & Grub event at The Green Bean's Windsor Star News Cafe. This all ages event runs from 5pm until 11pm. 

The Windsor Star News Cafe is located at 300 Ouellette Ave, 3rd floor. This is the cafe that is part of the new Windsor Star located where the old downtown Palace Theater was.

The Windsor Star News Cafe has great food, coffee and other yummy things. The location is also licensed and offers some awesome beer from Walkerville Brewery as well as local Wines. Street parking is free after 6pm if you can find a spot and there are two parking garages in a very short walking distance if you can't.

We play a wide variety of games at these events. You will find card, dice and board games. We've even seen some miniature gamers bring their armies out. There's no theme to the event. Our last gaming event saw games of Sheriff of Nottingham, Resident Evil, Lanterns, Elysium, Gravwell, DC Deck Building Game, and a whole lot more.

We encourage you to bring some games out, whether an old favourite or something new you want to try out. If you don't have anything to bring, that's cool too. There's always lots of variety and people are always happy to teach you the games they have brought.

November 7th - Live gaming auction in support of Extra Life

It's that time of year again. Time for Extra Life, the 24 hour gaming marathon done in support of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. 

Last year members of the Windsor Gaming Resource raised over $4000! in support of this great cause. A large portion of that money came from our 8pm live game auction. Due to that we've decided to do another this year. 

The auction will be held at 8pm on the night of Extra Life, which is November 7th. It will be at Brimstone games which can be found at 3298 Walker Road in Windsor Ontario Canada.

The auction items will be a mix of new and used games and other cool geeky items. There will be hand knit dice bags from Mercantile 519, games from Z-man Games. Bezier Games, Break From Reality, Game Salute, Black Shark Enterprises, and way more. 

We are still looking for more items to auction off. If you have something you would like to donate to the auction you can either bring it to the event, drop it off at Brimstone Games or contact Moe Tousignant some time before November 7th.
If you are interested in supporting us in some other way, perhaps joining us for 24 hours of gaming or making a donation to the cause, check out this post for everything we are doing for Extra Life.

CG Ream Cgame night featuring: Epic - Oct 10th

The 2nd Saturday of every month the Windsor Gaming Resource is proud to promote The CG Realm CGame night.

The CG Realm is located at 3147 Tecumseh Road East, right here in Windsor.

In addition to a growing collection of games for sale and demo games for you to try out, they also have a great gaming area with lots of tables, lots of room and great lighting.

Featured Game: Epic

This is the new non-collectible card game from the people that created the amazing Star Realms.

This isn't just Star Realms re-themed to a fantasy game, it's quite a bit different and people seem to be loving it. A lot of people are equating it with Magic but loving the fact it's non-collectible.

Come out on Saturday and check it out for yourself. You could even end up going home with a free copy.
