Event description

Description

You're a wordsmith in a world of unappreciative minds. You use fancy 15-letter words and people just look at you dumbfounded. You crush the competition in Words with Friends. And you always correct people when they say who instead of whom, even if you're only right 70% of the time. But for years, your talents have gone unappreciated. Well this ends on February 5th with our second ever word games tournament.

Get together a team of 2-4 and compete in three rounds of word-themed board games.

Round 1: Codenames. If you haven't heard of Codenames, don't worry, we'll explain the rules, and you'll love it.

Round 2: Taboo. If you haven't heard of Taboo, you clearly had a terrible childhood and for that we're sorry. But don't worry, we'll explain the rules, and you'll love it.

Round 3: The team splits up with members playing either Bananagrams or Word Domination and scoring points for their team. That's right, it's a game called Word Domination and it's fantastic. And yes, we can explain the rules to those too.

All this is taking place at Pizzeria Regina in Allston, so you can eat food or order drinks from the bar while you play.

The team with the most points will get a not-very-expensive prize and be immortalized in our Hall of Champions (http://www.playboardgameempire.com/hall-of-champions). Bad at word games? Come anyway, it'll still be fun. Don't have a team? Grab the ticket labeled "I don't have a team but I want to play anyway" and we'll find a team for you.

Oh, by the way, we have another tournament in March you might be interested in. It's for liars, bluffers and cheats (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-board-game-tournament-for-liars-bluffers-and-cheats-tickets-42055104951). And we're hosting a board game speed dating night in February (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/board-game-speed-dating-tickets-41970005416) too. Come play some games with us.
