First Moves
The second Saturday of the month,
9:30am-10:30am


We are frequently asked to hold events for younger children. First Moves will run from 9:30 to 10:30 on the second Saturday morning of the month, just for kids from 3-5 who love puzzles and games.

We will play all sorts of great games designed to help dexterity and logic, math and language, and even social skills. Our “First Moves” classes are specifically designed to help children learn the basic skills needed to play games, including taking turns, winning and losing with grace, and following directions. We play many cooperative games too. This helps the children learn to work with others in a productive manner. They’ll also get to exercise their creativity as they get to design their own jigsaw puzzle to take home every session.

Each class will be $10 per child. You may drop your child off or stay with them as you prefer. This offers the perfect opportunity to get a free hour to explore Eastern Market. Children must be potty trained. You must reserve a spot for this class by visiting our Eventbrite page.

Super Moves Advanced Game Club Summer Session

**FALL SESSION NOW AVAILABLE FOR RSVP!**

Due to popular demand, we're continuing our advanced game club through the summer! This class is designed specifically for middle-schoolers who have more experience playing games, or for rising 4th and 5th graders who have participated in our regular game class for at least two years and are now ready for more advanced games. The class explores advanced European games like Settlers of Catan and Dominion, and explores some collectible card games like Magic: the Gathering.

To register, please use our Eventbrite page. Cost is $5/class.

Pokemon Tournament Trainer
Saturday, November 22
12pm-2pm


This is an event for experienced Pokemon players, ages 6 to 10, who have been through our Learn to Play classes previously. Registration and more information is available at our Eventbrite page.

The Pokemon Tournament Trainer is a special event geared towards teaching you everything you need to know to play in a tournament. We'll go over how to build decks for tournament play, how to make a list of what's in your deck, and teach you how tournaments work. Then we'll go through one or two rounds of mock tournament play.

Games are more competitive and rules are much more strict in tournaments, so this event is really for those kids who have played frequently in our Learn to Play classes and who are ready to move forward competitively. You need to be able to remain calm whether winning or losing matches, and you must be able to be a good winner and loser.

Cost for this event is $15.

Kids' Magic: the Gathering Group
First Saturday of the month
4pm-6pm

We've started a monthly play group specifically for our younger Magic players. We'll teach the basics of the game, plus more advanced tips and tricks and deck-building strategies. This class is great for kids who know how to play but are looking for opponents their own age, as well as for any kid who wants to learn how to play. Magic is a complex, strategic game that develops analytical and mathematical skills. 

Recommended for ages 9+ due to a dark fantasy theme. Cost for each session is $10. Please RSVP at our Eventbrite page.

Learn to Play Pokemon

Sunday, November 9
4:30pm-5:30pm


If your child begs for Pokémon cards and loves collecting them, but doesn't really understand the game, this is the event for you. The game of Pokémon is very strategic and improves math skills (don't tell the kids). This two-hour class (you can drop off your kids - plenty of time for a nice, peaceful dinner) is for children from 6 to 10 years old.

 The cost will be $30, and each child will receive a complete deck of the latest Pokémon cards (normal cost is $16.54 for just the cards). Space is limited. You must register for this class at our Eventbrite page.
