Halloween At The Gamers’ Lodge Oct. 28

When’s the last time you went to a Poetry Slam? As far as I can tell, this is a first for Board Game Cafés in Edmonton… There’ll also be Pumpkin painting, Free gaming for those in costume, live music and the finals of the Capital Region Alliance Boardgaming championship!

See all the details at the event link here.

Have we gone mad? Who would possibly create so many spooky activities into one day? WE WOULD!

Throughout the day, anyone dressed in a convincing costume will have their gaming fee waived! As mentioned, these must be convincing. A jean jacket and backwards cap just isn’t going to cut it, okay? Let’s see your best!
