When: 7pm Tuesday 23rd April 2019
What: Games Night

Game night at the Hackspace!

All work and no play make Jack and Jill dull hackers. So come to the Hackspace, and lets use that deck of Cards Against Humanity and those board games we have in the library!
Bring your own, too, as long as they're simple to explain and play, won't take up all the evening, and won't cause an everlasting blood feud between players (so, no Monopoly)

NB: There is now a weekly Social, so only special one off events will be listed here in future.
