POSTPONED: 5th Annual Night of Board Gaming for Good on Top of the World!

March 13 @ 6:00 pm - March 14 @ 1:00 am


FTW Events and Calliope Games are proud to present the Fifth Annual Night of Board Gaming for Good on Top of the World!

Join us Friday March 13, 2020, for an evening with the gaming community as we play games, feast from a fantastic buffet, enjoy Top of the World views from the 76th floor of the Columbia Tower (the highest publicly accessible point in the city), and raise funds for a great cause.

Our beneficiary, the Imagine Guild, supports the Seattle Children’s Hospital, Uncompensated Care program. This program helps vulnerable families by easing the financial burden on parents, allowing them to focus on the most important thing – their child’s health.

Stay tuned to our event page at to be updated the latest event info, such as when we announce our special VIP Guests of Honor, our list of sponsors and their donated raffle prizes, and more. Tickets are on sale now at
