Check out what you can expect to see at our tables after October and all the spooky games have had their time.Continue reading
Hello gamers! We’re back with another installation of our interview series. Today’s interviewee is Esther. Esther has been playing games with the Traverse City Board Gamers since the very beginning of the group back in 2013. She was the first winner of our annual Ticket To Ride Tournament. You’ve likely seen her name pop up in posts that have the group stats about plays and wins and loses.Continue reading
Dear Board Game Diary,
I’ve met many through our Game Night meetups from all walks of life. It would seem that board games are the nondiscriminatory glue that binds us all. I’m reminded of this upon meeting these gamers as I get to know them more on a personal level.Continue reading
Well, hello there, gamers! I hope the weekend treated you well and that you had a chance to play some board games. Today’s subject is podcasts. Yes, podcasts. As a member of the Xennial generation, podcasts are a part of my everyday life. I may not listen to them every single day, but Number One does, and he shares with me the things that he listens to. As you may know, there are podcasts for just about every interest under the sun. Board games are no exception! There are a variety of board game podcasts available for you to listen to.Continue reading
We are going to do something a little different with this installment of Coming Soon. We are coming into the Labor Day weekend which we decided to throw an end of the summer party for all the gamers in the group. This will include a little giveaway of 10 different games! I want to showcase those titles to give everyone a little insight of what will be there and to see what potentially could be coming soon to the tables here at Game Night.
The festivities being 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 1st 2019 at Earthen Ales. We hope to see you there and good luck! Enjoy.Continue reading
July comes and goes in a flash. Festivals, events, beaches, and lakes fill our time with many activities. It would appear from the statistics this month that many have put the gaming on the back burner for a short while. Who could blame them with this gorgeous weather which we can only enjoy for a short time? Let’s take a look at the happens last month at Game Night.Continue reading
Hi guys! Today, let’s talk about one of my favorite things besides board games. Yes, we’re going to talk about food. More specifically, snacks that are good for eating while playing board games. I’m a snacker by nature, so I can’t imaging going to a game night and not having some sort of food to munch on. Now, if you’ll remember back to our etiquette post, greasy foods are generally a no-go.Continue reading
Hello all! I hope that the summer is going well for everyone.
As a household with three kids ranging in age from 15 all the way down to 2, summer can be a crazy time for our family. It seems like all I do is drive kids around from one activity to another. That doesn’t exactly leave a lot of time to write, or sleep, or even explore new board games. That got me thinking about subscription boxes.Continue reading
Happy Monday, ya’ll. Next up in the interview series is Matt (or as he is known in my house, Mr. Matt). We’ve already met Matt’s son, Josiah, in an earlier interview. Matt has been playing games with the TCBG since about 2017.Continue reading
Dear Board Game Diary
I’ve recently pushed into the world of game design. As a self proclaimed expert in the matter of all things board games, I figured it to be a natural step forward with my passion. Why not give something back to the hobby that has coddled my every unfulfilled entertainment need like a doting mother. Pretentious as this all may sound, I pushed forward with my creative thinking.Continue reading
