The last Thursday of each month is now your excuse to play board games.
Can you remember the last time you played Hungry Hippos? Are you familiar with that evil feeling of satisfaction that comes with playing the 'draw four' card in Uno? Remember the humble fun that was had when making rude words in scrabble? Why is it that we only ever play boardgames during a blackout? Or while camping? Or when bored on holidays with our parents? So many questions! There is an answer though.
The last Thursday of each month is now your excuse to play board games. Thanks to the Brisbane City Council in association with Sinuosity, King George Square celebrates Games Night, a place where the simply joys of Connect Four and the sleek strategies of Chess are celebrated.
On Games Night you'll find all sorts of board games. Learn a new one, be reunited with an old favourite, bring your own board game or join in with someone else. And for those of you who like the look of the above picture – yes it is true! At Games Night there are also giant board games available to play with - Honey I Shrunk The Kids style. Just in case you needed yet another excuse to play. Check mate.
