Description:Your last memory of a game might be of wanting to flip the table to end the marathon game of Monopoly or of your toddler clamoring for the fifth game of Chutes and Ladders while you contemplate putting PBS Kids back on. Chances are every board game you've ever played was first published sometime before the Nixon administration. If so, you are missing out on a new wave of exciting modern titles that are fun to play with adults or can be the centerpiece of some great family time - with no screens involved! Games like Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Pandemic are becoming more and more mainstream - they are fun, quick to play, and, dare we say it, maybe a little educational. During this class, USN parent and board game guru RICK KEULER and Bongo Java founder BOB BERNSTEIN will educate you about the hobby and how to get started with these new games. They will also introduce you to a couple favorites, play some as a class, and maybe even give you some insiders' tips on how to beat your kids at Catan. The class will take place at Nashville's new board game cafe, Game Point, and will include some signature Bongo coffee drinks and bakery items. Join them for a fun evening and never look at family time the same way again.
