Manic Monday Game Night @ Aloft Chapel Hill
February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
(<— You know, remember that one time that Mr. Peanut crashed Game Night?)
It’s official! Game Night has returned to the Aloft Hotel in Chapel Hill! And this awesome event is now on Monday Nights!
I know there’s a TON of Game Nights on the calender, but this one is designed to be a little different from the others. Similar to our event at the Aloft Durham Downtown, this is designed to be a low key and intimate (but still fun) event. We’ll be playing a variety of different games, but this event will have a focus on introducing lots of new titles and longer(ish) play games. We’re likely to play lots of Settlers of Catan, Pandemic Legacy, Risk and expect a lot of Game of Thrones themed games, because, why not! Feel like playing something with less brain power? Try out our Giant Connect4!
In addition to access to our insane board game collection, the Aloft Hotel will be providing drink specials for all attendees – including 1/2 price bottles of wine and yummy appetizers/snacks available for sale. I’m a personal fan of the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Special. In fact, they are running a special for a beer of your choice and any meal for $12. You are also welcome to get delivery or take out from many local restaurants.
Like all of my Game Nights, this is an excellent event for people who are new in town, new to meetup or just want to get out of the house to expand their social circle.
What Can I Expect? Manic Monday Game Night takes place every Monday from 7pm to 10pm at the WXYZ Bar/Lounge in the Aloft Hotel in Chapel Hill. When you arrive you will look for Mandy, who will be your game night hostess (she’ll be in a black trianglegamenight.com shirt). From there, you can opt to choose a board game from our “Board Game Library” or walk around and join a game in progress.
What Games Will Be Available? Please note that because of our large collection of games many games will be on rotation. We rotate out games that are not often played, but there will always be 75 available! (Yes, we have THAT many games!) If there is a game on the list below you do not see at Game Night, feel free to ask me to bring it to play the next week!
Can I Bring My Own Board Game to Play?
Yes! In fact, the more games the merrier! Just mak sure your board games are labeled with your name!
What is your current Game of the Month? Our current featured Game of the Month is LOVE LETTER which is provided by our Game Night sponsor, Family Legacy Financial Solutions
It’s February so, OF COURSE, our Game of the Month is Love Letter.
It’s a classic 20 minute game that plays 2-4 players. There are only 16 cards in the entire game so it’s easy to learn and teach. With simple mechanics and 9 different editions, (ranging in theme from Munchkin to Batman) this game is the perfect way to introduce friends and coworkers to gaming. We’ll be giving away a copy of the original Love Letter, but your host Dara is always excited to teach her favorite version: Adventure Time Love Letter, as well.
“Love Letter is a game you’ll play now, tomorrow, and years to come. It isn’t just a summer fling. It’s a lifelong romance.” – Board and Savior
Does WXYZ Serve Alcohol and Food? Yes, they have a full bar and serve food.
I’m New in Town/Recently Single – Would it be weird if I attend this event alone? Absolutely not! This is a GREAT event for people who are new to meetup, new in town or recently single. It’s a great way to meet new people and super low key!
How is this Event Different from all the other Game Nights you host? Located right off of 54, the Aloft Hotel has a great location. The Aloft hotel also has a different vibe from the fast-pace of some of our other venues. It serves as a great venue for a low-key and intimate game night! This is also a great spot for serious gamers who want a quieter environment where they can focus.
Hope to see you there!
