Adults Only Night: Games We Play
Thursday, March 8, 2018
6 p.m.-10 p.m.
Galleries and activities: 6 p.m.-10 p.m.
Bar Last Call: 9:30 p.m.
We play games throughout our entire lives - with our friends on the playground or in our backyards, in basements and bars, and in casinos. What are the laws of chance and why do we get so involved in the games we play? Do they teach us anything? Come explore the gamut of gaming with us - and even play a few at Adults Only Night!
Adults Only Night is a licensed event for those 18 years of age and older. All visitors must provide valid government issued photo ID.
Check out some of the things going on at Adults Only Night this month:
6-9:30 p.m. Communicable
We can use games to model things that happen in our society ... and we're going to model the transmission of STIs in a pervasive game! See if you can make it through the evening without picking up anything ... interesting. You'll just be swapping fluids from vials though - your bodily fluids are not required.
6-9:30 p.m. Board Game Sampler
Our friends from Myth Games have brought in some of their most popular games, from classics to the new ones you hear about on Tabletop. And if there's that game you've been trying to track down since you played it at a friend's birthday party when you were eight, make sure you ask about it - they know your stuff, so you might be on your way to reliving days of board game glory.
6-9:30 p.m. Giant Foosball
A favourite of college dormitories everywhere; we’ve created a foosball table on a giant scale! Grab a few friends and test your skills. Flick, twist, and roll your players to victory. Remember, this version will be a lot bigger than you, but the only requirement is to have fun!
6-9:30 p.m. Dungeons and Dragons Express
Goblins, Kobolds and Gnomes! Oh my! Dungeons and Dragons has been a cultural phenomenon since the 1970’s. If you’ve never played before, this is the perfect opportunity to see what all the hype is about and embrace your inner adventurer. Come try a quick 30 minute Dungeons and Dragons sampler with our friends from Myth Games.
6-9:30 p.m. Mario Through the Ages
Video games look very different since their 8-bit days. Come see how Mario videogames have evolved through the ages! From simple 2D levels all the way to immersive 3D experiences, our favourite red-hatted plumber is still trying to rescue that princess. You’ll get a chance to try for yourself and see first-hand what’s changed! Experts from Video Game Trader will be on hand to answer any questions about how the technology, controls and storytelling has changed.
