The popular board game lunch is back! Join Professor Ziad Munson every Monday from 11:30 - 12:30 in the SMC room (Maginnes 104). Pizza and drinks provided. Ziad will provide a selection of different games that can be played in an hour or so. You are also welcome to bring others, if you'd like.
For those who haven't joined us before, each week Ziad brings a stack of possible games to play and we decide together what to try. No experience is necessary-- he teaches each game before you begin. The goal is no more than to relax a little, chat, and have some fun. All are welcome but RSVP to email@example.com so we can be sure to have enough pizza!
