The Nerdologues: Bring Your Own Game Night!

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am

| Free

We’ll be in the House Theater at the Public House Theatre. The one where Your Stories is at. We’ll be playing some games, duh. More elaborate details to follow!

BYOG. Bring Your Own Game! So, we’re going to focus on everyone bringing their own favorite game this month and celebrate learning about other people’s favorites.

In addition to that, we’ll be doing a playtest with our friends over at FLOAT A GOAT Games. They are working on a new game called, Something Different. So, we figured we’d try it out with them.

Play test: 5pm.

Casual gaming: 7pm.


More details:

Float a Goat Games is an indie table top game development company started by a few friends who were at the time all looking for jobs and decided to make their own. Having one successful kickstarter under their belt with the Zombie themed drinking game ‘Zombies: a Game on a Glass’ the group is now working on several new card games. The group is currently getting ready to attempt to launch their largest card game release yet later this summer: ‘Something Different’.

Something Different is a card game that functions like Flux meets Mao. Inciting players to duel their opponents and follow ridiculous rules that change every turn, the game is a race to empty your hand while keeping in line with the laws of play. Overall Something Different promises to be just that.
