Put down the controller and pick up some dice, this upcoming Saturday (Nov. 24) is Board Game Day at the Tysons-Pimmit Library.
The event is hosted by the Northern Virginia Board Game Group, which describes itself as “small group of passionate board game enthusiasts.” The NOVA Board Game Group says the event will be relaxed and casual, catering to all levels of interest and experience in board games.
The event will run from 1-5 p.m.
The board games played aren’t the traditional staples like Monopoly or Life. Instead, the group tends to favor modern games like Pandemic. Most are traditionally easy to learn games, while a separate group meets to play the more complicated strategy games.
Players are requested to bring their good sportsmanship but leave the electronic devices away from the table. Players are also asked to avoid bringing greasy or oily foods as they may damage the games. Children under 16 must have a parent present.
The group hosts board game days at libraries across the region and is scheduled to return to Tysons on Dec. 29, in case you can’t make it out this weekend.
