Description

NOTE: Unfortunately, this event is sold out. However, due to the very positive response, we have set up two new dates in Jamaica Plain. You can grab a ticket to one of those here:


Can't make either of those dates? E-mail us at host@playboardgameempire.com and we can let you know about the next one we do after those.

And if you just were really hoping to play board games at Down the Road Brewery tonight, good news, even though the speed dating portion of things is sold out, tonight and every Wednesday at DTR is board game night in the main room. A host brings in 60+ board games and you can play whatever you want.

And now, back to your original event listing...


Finding someone can be horrifically painful. But board games are always awesome. So what if you combined board games and searching for a partner?

Picture this: You sit down for a night of games. A gaming concierge walks you through several games over the course of the night. You play classics and have fun playing brand new games you've never heard of, playing each with a different group of people, getting a chance to meet some other fun singles. All while in a really cool brewery with plenty of delicious adult beverages. At the end of the night, you give your gaming concierge a list of the folks you met that you'd like to date and a list of those you met that you'd like to just hang out with as friends. If any two people put down the same name as each other in either column, then your gaming concierge will make sure you get each other's e-mail address and you can coordinate a time to hang out.

Best case scenario: You find true love, discover some awesome board games, and make some new friends.

Bad case scenario: You accomplish only one of those three things, which is still pretty great.

Worst case scenario: There will be alcohol.

Before you decide to buy tickets, a few basics we should cover:

1) This is for single people ages 21-35.

2) Tickets are $20 each, but they come with a $5 gift card to the brewery. The brewery also will have a food vendor on-hand that night serving deliciousness all night, but your gift card unfortunately can't be used towards the food as they are an independent vendor not associated with the brewery. What food vendor you ask? Great question. They're called T'AHPAS 529 and they are a lively modern Spanish and Mediterranean restaurant with unique specialties from around the globe.

3) Refunds are only available to those who cancel with more than 24 hours' notice (exceptions will be made for emergency situations on a case-by-case basis). After that, we're blowing the money from your ticket sale on something awesome and nonrefundable. This is partly because we love living a life of extravagance on someone else's dime, but also because it's not fair to everyone else if the attendance is lower than they thought it would be because a handful of people flaked at the 11th hour.

4) If we get to 24 hours before the event and still haven't sold five tickets for each gender we will cancel the event (and notify you). We think this is very unlikely, but wanted to include a note about it in case that possibility arose.

5) How many games we have and which ones we use will be based in part on how many people attend, so we can't tell you for sure what we'll have right now. But the goal is for all of them to be fun, light, easy-to-learn games, and to include both ones you have played before and some new ones we think you'd enjoy. No, they are not games focused on sparking conversation, but we have a hunch that over the course of a game together, you'll have a gut instinct about whether or not you'd want to date/hang out with someone all the same.

6) Desperately wish you could attend, but you have plans on the 4th or the tickets you want are sold out? We are strongly considering doing more of these, so shoot us an e-mail at host@playboardgameempire.com, and we can let you know when the next one is happening.
