November 7th Plans

Mahjong @ 7:00 + : We are currently planning to have mahjong tables again this month. Bring your friends, your luck, and mahjong set if you have one. We have several available for people to borrow during the event.
Poker tournament @ 7:30 -10:00  : Come join us for a $5 Tzedakah tournament this month.  The winner gets to pick a CBS fund where the entry fee donations go. Arrive and sign up for the poker tournament by 7:30 to ensure entry. Monthly CBS funds and descriptions will be available at the event.
Magic the Gathering @ 7:00 + : Did you ever want to learn how to play Magic the Gathering? We’ll you are in luck! We have a few experts who are willing to share some decks and teach people how to play. The first few people that arrive to play MtG will even get a free starter deck (donated by Paper or Plastic Sports and Games)!
Bring your own Board Game @ 6:00 +: Do you and your friends get together for a board game night? Consider meeting at CBS for your next game night. Several members will bring extra board games for people to try something new if they’d like.

Movies for kids: While we don’t have formal babysitting for this event, we do plan on having some movies available for kids to watch. Supervise your kiddos from a poker table or create a rotation of supervisors with your friends.


October 3rd Summary

Mahjong: We had 2 tables playing mahjong through the night.
Poker tournament: We had a full table playing poker for a custom travelling trophy. It ended in a dramatic come from behind victory and quad kings for the win!
Bring your own Board Game: Board games were a big hit in October with all ages playing various games on several tables. Some lucky attendees received some free Magic the Gathering starter decks that were donated by Paper or Plastic Sports and Games.
Movies for kids: Kids enjoyed the movies and fresh popcorn. Adults were able to hang out, play games, and keep an eye on the kids!
