Adult Board Game Day- Wingspan
Join us for our first Adult board game day! We will be teaching how to play Wingspan, which is a competitive game with the goal to receive the most points by the end of the game. You will go through 4 rounds each game to play birds, collect food, and lay eggs to gather the points needed to win! This game is complex and strategic, which is why the age range is for adults only. Want to get a head start- watch some tutorials online! If you already know how to play, join us to help others learn. Limited space due to supplies. Pre-registration is required. This is an indoor event.
