Most of you have probably already heard of the Learn to Play events we started over a month ago – we have sent out email and flooded Facebook with announcements. However, in case you opted out of our email (I completely understand) and don’t “do” Facebook (I absolutely positively completely understand), you can find some info below.
Note: Due to the demand which these events have garnered, we highly recommend reserving a spot by calling the store at 630/963-0640. We will take down your name and number and hold a spot for you. We will also take requests for standby spots in case someone does not show up.
Please arrive 15 minutes before game time to assure your spot in your chosen game!
Every Saturday we coordinate with a group of volunteers to arrange a schedule of games to be taught. The volunteers set up the games, teach you how to play, and handle the clean up.
Players pay $5 for their seat, and in exchange get $5 of store credit.
For rating the complexity of the games, we use a simple scale of 1 to 3:
Games with a rating of 1 are appropriate for everyone except young children. Board game novices looking to learn something new should look for 1’s on our schedule.
Games with a rating of 2 are distinctly more complex than 1’s. If you are a gamer, these games are probably your “bread & butter”. Board game novices should probably avoid these until they have played a couple of 1’s (I guess at that point, you aren’t a novice!).
Games with a rating of 3 are much more intense. They will have long play times, complex rules, and many components. Depending on the time required, these games may not be completed fully in the allotted time.
