Triangle Game Night is a group of board game enthusiasts who meet up at a variety of venues in the Triangle to play games. The group has a huge collection of board games–more than 265, including nostalgic games, like Hungry, Hungry Hippos, party games like Cards Against Humanity, and serious gamer games like 7 Wonders. Here’s a list of the games in the collection.
At events they bring out about 75 of the most popular games, and they add a new game every month, so there’s always something new.
Each game night is hosted by experienced game night staff, easily identified in a Triangle Game Night t-shirt. If you’re trying a new game, you’ll appreciate the demos at the beginning of the night.
Follow Triangle Game Night on Facebook, and you’ll find lots of details about all the events.
Here are their weekly events. All are free to attend, but you’re encouraged to donate $1 to the game fund. Also, food and drink are available for purchase from the venues. Please tip your bartender. You’re also welcome to bring your own board game.
These events are a great, low-key date night, and also a good way to meet new people.
They also have a collection of giant games, like Giant Jenga, available for rental for parties.
