CHOOSING YOUR CAUSE - update coming soon
The purpose of this event is to have fun while putting resources into organizing and movement building for collective liberation. Choose*** the cause you are playing for based on the following criteria:
1. grassroots group or organization
2. engaged in some form of organizing or movement building
3. building toward justice and liberation
4. working locally in boston/new england

*If you've got a question about our criteria or a group choice, just email us at LiberationGameNight@gmail.com!
*If you're wondering who to choose, we suggest playing for any local/regional group funded by Resist or Haymarket People's Fund.
*We reserve the right to deny any proceeds going to groups that don't fit the criteria. (Get that capitalist white supremacist heteropatriarchy sh&t outta here.)


EVERYTHING ELSE

Food/drink - we'll have dinner plates for sale and drinks for recommended donation.

Childcare - we'll have it! make sure you get a free childcare ticket for each child. there will be follow-up questions on the order form so we know the ages and if you would like to contribute to cover childcare costs (not required).

Wheelchair accessibility - the first floor is wheelchair accessible, which includes the Game Room, food and the bathrooms. The second floor, where tournaments and bar are located, is not wheelchair accessible. We plan to accommodate for this by moving tournament tables to the Game Room as needed - just give us a heads up in advance (LiberationGameNight@gmail.com) or at the door.

Game room - open for self-organized gaming. Cards, board games, etc. Please bring your own to share and teach, and we will have some too. Game room buy-ins will be distributed to featured organizations through a non-competitive process. We encourage players in the poker or spades tournaments to have fun in the game room (if you get knocked out).

Tournament times - TBD. Tournaments are likely to last until 11:00PM or later. Once the final tables are set, tournaments will move downstairs while the dance party heats up upstairs.

Tournament rules - will be set and posted by committee in advance.

Teams for spades - entering as a team is allowed but not required. Each individual must use their event ticket as a tournament buy-in.

Lessons - We'll have lessons throughout the night for games like poker, spades, dominoes where you can learn the game. Afterwards, if you're feeling up to it join a tournament!

Volunteer - we can definitely use your help with setup, cleanup, tournament operation and more! let us know if you're interested in helping out LiberationGameNight@gmail.com
