Work and socializing aren't the only things going on at the clubhouse. The club membership includes a large number of gamers and NESFA has embraced this to allow for limited gaming on Wednesday evenings and more general game days once per month.
On Wednesday evenings (when many active members normally get together at the clubhouse), the current favorite is Dominion. Since there are enough sets to run three different games at the same time, nobody is left out, but gaming has to share with other activities.
One Saturday each month the club hosts an open games day; the dates are posted in our calendar. A wide variety of games are available to play, suiting all tastes and abilities. If you don't know how to play a particular game, one of our GMs will be happy to teach you. If you'd like to bring in a game and show the club how to play it, please do; we're always willing to learn new games. There's no charge to play and you don't have to join the club. Simply show up and enjoy a game.
