I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners of The Game Chest, Karen Altwein, and her love for games and sharing them with families inspired me to help pass the word on about their offerings with you all!
The Game Chest carries a wide assortment of STEM based games, activities, and features gaming events in their TGC Learning Center.
They also offer:
Game Rentals - Want to try before you buy or having a game night with friends? No matter the occasion, they have a large selection of games that you can rent for only $5 for a week. Love the game and want a copy for yourself? You can credit that $5 towards your purchase.
Board Game Nights - Bring your family and friends and join them for a Board Game Night. They have a room dedicated to game play and on these nights they offer free gaming as a group. Get to know other families and make new friends as you learn a new game or compete with an old favorite.
Parents’ Night Out / Date Night - Imagine this, a night out with just the two of you while your kids are not only fed dinner (that you didn’t have to cook) but are also kept entertained for three whole hours. THREE peaceful hours filled with adult conversation. Yes, this can be yours. Drop off your kids for one of their Date Night events and grab a little alone time while they teach your kids some games, they make some new friends, and enjoy some pizza.
Check their Events Calendar (and count the minutes) until the next scheduled night.
Tournament Play - Is Pokémon your game or is Magic: The Gathering your battle of choice? Are you a Dungeons & Dragons fan or do you prefer the whimsical Munchkin series?They have interest lists forming and will be rolling out their tournament schedules soon. Please let them know if you want to be added to their list!
