How to Shop for the Perfect Gift

Tuesday, November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Were you thinking of gifting a board game for the Holidays, but you are not sure which one might be a good choice?

We would like to help!

Olaf will host a 1-hour presentation about the different choices of games, and what we might want to consider when shopping for the right title.
He will outline the different types of games and game-mechanisms, as well as the difference between games for families and games for younger children

Topics will include:

  • Difference between the game categories, (Party, Family, 2 Player, Strategy, and Children’s Games)
  • What does the age-suggestion on the game box mean?
  • Different choices for entry-level and experienced players
  • Great games for family-gatherings
  • Different price-points, from stocking stuffers to elaborate gifts
  • The differences in complexities, from easy-to-learn to elaborate rulesets
  • Difference between a core game and expansions
  • What are the different versions of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Carcassonne?
  • and more

We will be available to answer any more questions that you might have after the event

Walk ins are welcome!

We are looking forward to see you there!
