BOARDGAME SPEED DATING
As recently featured on ABC's Chronicle.
Had you visited this page not too long ago, you would have seen perhaps the most amazing sales page ever built. One describing the kind of event you could tell your grandkids about! And in fact, we're so proud of that page and that event that we've left the wording mostly intact so you can read it below. However, in light of the COVID-19 virus, we are suspending all of our events until it is safe to resume them.
To be notified about the next boardgame speed dating event, whenever it may be, simply sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of the page.
Finding someone can be horrifically painful. But board games are always awesome. So what if you combined board games and searching for a partner?
Picture this: You sit down for a night of games. A gaming concierge walks you through several games over the course of the night. You play classics and have fun playing brand new games you've never heard of, playing each with a different group of people, getting a chance to meet some other fun singles. All while in a fun restaurant that serves adult beverages and breakfast for dinner. At the end of the night, you give your gaming concierge a list of the folks you met that you'd like to date and a list of those you met that you'd like to just hang out with as friends. If any two people put down the same name as each other in either column, then your gaming concierge will make sure you get each other's e-mail address and you can coordinate a time to hang out.
Best case scenario: You find true love, discover some awesome board games, and make some new friends.
Bad case scenario: You accomplish only one of those three things, which is still pretty great.
Worst case scenario: There will be alcohol.
Before you decide to buy tickets, a few basics we should cover:
1) All are welcome. We normally offer events for men & women as well as same-sex events. There is no required age to participate, but many have asked the average age of the attendees, and we have found that most of the participants have been in their 20s and early 30s. As a result, we are working to set up an event specifically for people in their 30s and 40s so that everyone can enjoy the magic of board game speed dating.
2) How many games we have and which ones we use will be based in part on how many people attend, so we can't tell you for sure what we'll have right now. But they will all be fun, light, easy-to-learn games, and include games from both the something-you-have-played-before category and the something-you-haven't-played-before category. No, they are not games focused on sparking conversation, but we have a hunch that over the course of a game together, you'll have a gut instinct about whether or not you'd want to date/hang out with someone all the same.
