Board games are cool again —with the South Park crew even playing some board games in the final scene of the most recent episode.
But we’ve been convening board game nerds for years, and we’ll be doing it again Tuesday night at the Spitfire bar in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood for our annual GeekWire Game Night and Meetup.
We’ll be busting out fan favorites such as Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride, and converting the back room into a full casino, courtesy of Game Night sponsor Double Down Interactive. Also be sure to connect with Game Night sponsor Amazon.com.
Tickets are still available, so make sure to get your friends and join this action-packed evening.
Not into playing games? No worries. This is a fun meetup, first and foremost, so just join the crowd and get to know some of your fellow geeks.
Here are the details you need to know for Tuesday night’s shindig.
When: Tuesday, November 11, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Where: Spitfire bar, 2219 4th Ave, Seattle. Map here.
Parking: On-street parking and surface lots available nearby.
Tickets: Tickets are still available for those who would like to attend, so just go here to register.
Prizes: We’ve got some great prizes available from our friends at Meeples Games in West Seattle and Blue Highway Games in Queen Anne. Plus, GeekWire game night sponsor Double Down Interactive plans to raffle off a GoPro camera. Other GeekWire and gaming swag to be handed out.
Important note for Settlers of Catan players: We’ve got a big contingent of Catan fanatics coming out on Tuesday, so if you have an extra copy of the game, please bring it along. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you can bring a copy. Also, make sure to show up at 5:30 p.m. to get seated in the tournament.
We’ll have other board games on hand, but we encourage you to bring your favorite game and round up a group to play.
Mark your calendars for Dec. 3: Can’t make Game Night this week? Don’t worry. Our big GeekWire Gala — the geekiest holiday party on the planet — is coming up on Dec. 3rd at the Museum of History & Industry. . Celebrate the Seattle 10, raise a glass to the Newsmakers of the Year and just party with us geek style. Tickets and details here.
Thanks, and looking forward to seeing everyone Tuesday night.
