Brimstone Board Game Nights for July - Munchkin and Splendor

Hey Windsor area gamers, come out to Brimstone Board Game Night! Meet other gamers, play some great games and maybe even win a game to bring home.

Brimstone Board Game Night hits on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. These events run from 5pm to 10pm and are open to all ages.

Every event will feature at least one game. There will be demo copies of the game available and someone on hand willing to teach the game so you can try before you buy.

You can win games just by coming out to play. At every Brimstone Board Game Night you earn tickets that give you a chance to win free games. Every event we will be giving away a copy of the featured game and some events will feature even more. 

Players earn 1 ticket for playing games, 1 ticket for purchasing a snack or drink, and 1 ticket for bringing 1 or more board games for people to play. Earn 5 more tickets for each game you purchase. First time players will receive 5 additional tickets.

Heads up, as of July 1st you can now find Brimstone at 1421 Tecumseh Rd. E. right next to Franco's. There is parking in back and there is a municipal lot across the street that is free after 6pm.

July 2nd: Munchkin Night

July 2nd the featured game will be Steve Jackson Games' Munchkin.

We will be Giving away, 1 Regular Munchkin, 1 Themed Munchkin & 1 Deluxe Version!

Munchkin is a humorous take that game where players are competing to get to level 10. At first players must work together but once it gets near the end it's all about who's stabbing who in the back.

July 16th: Splendor

July 16th the featured game will be Splendor from Space Cowboys.

This game is hugely popular here in Windsor. I can't remember the last game night that at least one game of Splendor didn't get played.

Very simple rules and very easy to teach but so difficult to master. In this abstract tableau builder players are using gems represented by poker chips to buy various cards that give them more gems to spend each round. In addition higher value cards are worth victory points. Get the right sets of gems and you get a bonus Royalty scoring card. It's a race to 15 points but the player that gets there first may not win if someone gets more on the final round.
