INTRO | BOARD GAMES 101
The shorter days and lower temperatures of September may bum out most of us, it can also mean getting back to a normal schedule, and more opportunities to gather with friends around the gaming table!
We have been working on a new program for Thursday’s board game nights, and in honor of schools getting back into session – we’ve decided to start off this season with BOARD GAME 101 courses at the twenty sided store. When you come for an event, you’ll get a dedicated person who will teach you the rules and strategies for some of the most popular and important board games in the hobby. You’ll learn about how the core mechanics work, and we’ll point you to other games that you can explore based on your interests and experience. As part of this process, please give us feedback so we can keep making this experience better and better!
We have broken down the next five weeks into school subjects. Each week we will cover a new game accompanied by a blog article. If you don’t have time to check out the weekly articles on the site ahead of time, that’s okay, because we’ll go over everything at the beginning of each session. Everyone at the table is assumed to be a beginner, so it will be a casual atmosphere designed to teach the game. Check the events calendar for a complete schedule of when each subject will be covered, and the game we’ll be learning that week.
ABOUT CHRIS KREUTER
I am first and foremost a lover of board games. I have made many friends and have had so many great experiences through playing board games – and I really enjoy introducing new people into our amazing hobby. In a time when so many of our interactions are virtual, it’s nice to put down the screen and get some face time telling a story together.
Some of you know me around Twenty Sided as “The Epigo Guy”, but in case you’re wondering about my qualifications to be teaching all of these awesome games we’ll be learning: I’m one half of the game design team that comprises Masquerade Games, LLC. We’ve officially released two games, one of which is the widely praised Epigo available for playing at the Twenty Sided Store.
