Express everything you like. No word can hurt you. None. No idea can hurt you. Not being able to express an idea or a word will hurt you much more. As much as a bullet.

Game Night: Ticket to Ride

Wednesday, March 22 at 6 pm

Adult Game Night is an attempt to get adults interested in gaming, again! We associate playing games with kids, but adults need to play just as much as younger folks, maybe more. It is a great way to relax after a long day, a social, relaxing activity to take your mind off your troubles. So—come and play Ticket to Ride with Katherine on Game Night! Ticket to Ride is a set collecting game, in which you try to collect a number of train routes across North America. To win, you have to balance greedily collecting cards with actually setting reasonable goals.

This event is aimed towards adults, but if children over the age of 8 are interested, they can come, too. And convince their parents to come play, because we should all be playing more games!!
