How far would you go to crush your monopoly friends – or any board game for that matter?
If you’re in desperate need of a game night to grab bragging rights and dice-roll dominance, then you’re in luck.
This summer, a West End street will be closed for a big night of outdoor games.
After its great popularity last year, West End Game Night at Jim Deva Plaza will be back not once, not twice, but six times this summer.
Starting in June, Vancouverites will be invited to take to the square every other Thursday to participate in free board games and listen to local musicians.
Classic games like Monopoly, Settlers of Catan, Scrabble, Cards Against Humanity, and Pictionary will be available.
A very popular game of jumbo jenga and hex-a-pong (table tennis for six) will also be returning each year.
If you’re unfamiliar with any of the games, but are keen to learn, volunteers will also be on hand to lead tutorials and help participants get started.
The event is organized by Young Ideas, a group of neighbors who coordinate events, activities and workshops for people in their 20s, 30s and over and who spend time in Vancouver’s West End.
Outdoor game evenings on the esplanade will begin on Thursday, June 14 and will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., every other Thursday until August 23.
When: From Thursday June 14 to Thursday August 23, 2018
Time: 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Or: Place Jim Deva – 1200 Bute St, Vancouver
Admission: To free!
