CNJM Gala Games Night hosted by Java Joe

CNJM is once again sponsoring our semiannual Gala Games night. Java Joe, a consummate gamer, will be your host. Come and join CNJM for a night filled with great games and you’re sure to have a fun and enjoyable time! As always, guests are very welcome.

Join in and learn a new game you haven’t played before or you can play ‘classic favorites’ that will also be available. Java Joe will supply playing cards and ‘classic favorites’ such as Scrabble, Go, and Mille Bornes. He will bring games from his collection which includes games played at Mensa Mind Games (MMG) over the years.

Some of the games that Joe will provide: Ticket to Ride; Dizios (MMG 2010 Mensa Select); Pyramix (MMG 2014 Mensa Select); Compounded (MMG 2014); Lanterns, the Harvest Festival (MMG 2015 Mensa Select); Musee (MMG 2015); Circular Reasoning (MMG 2016 Mensa Select); The Last Spike (MMG 2016 Mensa Select); and more ....

You are encouraged to bring your own favorites to share with other Mensans. Feel free to contact Java Joe if there is a particular game you have always wanted to try - who knows, he might actually have it.

The January Monthly Meeting will be held at the home of our President, Erin, who has requested that members please RSVP so that she has a rough headcount. Light refreshments will be provided. If there’s something specific you’d like to eat or drink, feel free to bring plenty to share!

We look forward to seeing you!
