As Brennan announced over on Burlington Board Gamers, the Fletcher Free Library decided to make board game days a regular part of their programming. The fun starts January 23rd, a mere two Saturdays away. From then on, there will be game days twice monthly in the library’s community room — well secluded from the high use areas of the library, so we can celebrate critical successes and failures appropriately. Details still need to worked out about the exact timing of the Saturdays in question.
The nice thing about this opportunity is it opens up the opportunity to play board games to people who typically can’t make the Tuesday do at Quarterstaff Games, or wouldn’t normally wander into an out of the way hobbyist shop — Quarterstaff may be centrally located in Burlington, but it’s easy to miss up on the second floor of the building unless you know what you’re looking for.
If the last two library game days are a guide by which to judge, this is going to be fun. There’s lots of table space, a solid five hour block in which to play and the opportunity for newcomers to discover tabletop games. Both times we played at the Fletcher, we had new people come in just to see what was going on, then sit down and play.
