Shared Breakfast: Board Game Edition

14 December 2017, 09:30 - 10:30

Play, generally, adds joy to the life, but specifically board game playing brings some unique health and life improving benefits to a person’s life. Boardgames can test your intelligence. They can be tactical, they can be strategic or they can just be simple and fun. Some boardgames offer a taste of all of these aspects.

In order to spice up our weekly Shared Breakfast, we invite you to test your logics, patience and teamwork at a round of fun boardgames on Thursday, December 14 in Tekwill Café.

The 3 games played on this upcoming Thursday Morning will be:

  • Carcassonne- a tile-placement game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The tile might feature a city, a road, a cloister, grassland or some combination thereof, and it must be placed adjacent to tiles that have already been played, in such a way that cities are connected to cities, roads to roads, etcetera. Having placed a tile, the player can then decide to place one of his meeples on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner.
  • Activity - a party game from Piatnik played in 2-4 teams with at least 2 players each. The teams' meeples move over the board, the goal is to reach the finish. Depending on the sort of field they are currently standing at, one player has to act (pantomime) or to describe or to paint a phrase given on a card and the other members of his team have to find out what that should be. If they manage to do so, their meeple moves forward.
  • Jenga - played with 54 wooden blocks; each block is 3 times as long as it is wide, and slightly smaller in height than in width. The blocks are stacked in a tower formation; each story is three blocks placed adjacent to each other along their long side, and each story is placed perpendicular to the previous. There are therefore 18 stories to the Jenga tower. Since stacking the blocks neatly can be tedious, a plastic loading tray is included.
