Open invite for Boardgaming on Free comic Book Day

This is an open invite to all Windsor and surrounding area gamers. Join us on Free Comic Book day and play some great Boardgames!

The Windsor Gaming Resource will be hosting an afternoon of gaming on May 2nd at the Walker Road Knights of Columbus, in Windsor Ontario, from Noon until 6:00PM. This will be our fifth Games and Grub event. At previous events we played some great games including Power Grid, Alhambra, Formula D, Bang!, Shadows Over Camelot, El Grande, Settlers of Catan, Hacienda and Bohnanza.

We have reserved two large tables that should fit up to three reasonably sized boardgames each, or one massive one like The World of Warcraft Boardgame. A third table will be available if we need it. The Knights of Columbus will be open to the public at the time, but this has never been a problem in the past and we have held multiple events at this venue. The worst that happens is regulars come over and ask what the heck are we playing and then ask if it's anything like Risk.

The KofC has a good sized offering of home cooked comfort food style items. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic Beverages will also be available. As the Council is not charging us to host this event I encourage everyone to support the venue by purchasing some food and/or drink.

The KofC is is located at 1711 Walker Road between Tecumseh and Seminole.

At these events we usually play boardgames, but we have also had people there playing Star Wars Minis and various CCGs. I'm not sure exactly what games I will be bringing this time, but I am more then willing to teach any game I do bring. I also encourage others to bring games they would like to share with their fellow gamers.

If there are any requests for games to be played please let me know and I will do what I can to accommodate.

Due to this event falling on Free Comic Book Day, we have decided to give out some free comics (mostly stuff from previous free comic book days). We also encourage others to bring in comics to trade or give away if you no longer want them.

A disclaimer: The WGR has no ties or affiliation with the Knights of Columbus or what they represent, it's just a good venue to play some games at that also happens to be free.
