Douglas Green, right, on his way to becoming ‘Lord of All Catan’ in the championship game at last year’s GeekWire Game Night.

Are you ready to rip it up with some fun board game action? Or, just want to hang out with fellow geeks in a relaxed setting?

Back by popular demand, we’re hosting the 2nd annual GeekWire Game Night & Meetup at the Spitfire on July 10th. Things will get rolling at 5 p.m. Get your tickets here.

For those who missed the festivities last year, we basically turn the Spitfire into a board gaming paradise, from old-school favorites to modern classics.  I’ll be participating once again in the Settlers of Catan tournament, hoping to ride off my success from last year as I avoid the pesky robber and shoot for the longest road.

Start placing your bets now on who will be GeekWire’s “Lord of All Catan.” Prizes will be awarded, and we’ve got some extra special surprises in store this year.

Feel free to bring your favorite board or card games as well. We can’t guarantee there will be enough players interested in your specific game title, but we’ll do our best to get everyone matched up.

If you are not into board games, plenty of old-school social networking will occur in the main bar area where will be hosting the beverages for a portion of the evening and serving up some delicious snacks.

This is a 21-and-over event, and there’s a $5 ticket price for developers, designers, engineers and startuppers. It’s $10 entry for general admission. We’ve got limited capacity, so make sure to get your tickets today before we sell out!

We’ll break into teams around 5:30, and play until the winners are announced. You can register here for the GeekWire Meetup and Game Night. See everyone on July 10th!!
