Summer Game Club
Tuesdays, 4pm to 6pm

Our weekly summer game classes return! Please register through our Eventbrite page. 

Does your child love playing board games? Labyrinth Game Club’s summer session is a great chance for game-loving kids between 1st and 5th grade to learn more about non-electronic games, from strategy to design! This will be our fourth year running this incredibly popular program

Each week we introduce new games and work on developing skills and strategies with games previously introduced. We focus on strategy, logic, spatial relations, math, language, and creative skills. We also concentrate on important executive functions and social skills, such as following directions, playing fair, winning and losing with grace, teamwork, and competition. Toward the end of the summer, we will teach camp participants about game design and work with them to create and test their own games.

Labyrinth Games Summer Camp will run every Tuesday, 4pm to 6pm, from June 24 to August 19. You will be able to purchase individual tickets above for each day your child is attending. Please complete a separate registration for each child. The cost is $10/child/day. We will call you within two days of receiving your registration to process your payment for the class. Payment is required to reserve your child's space in the class. You may also call us with your credit card number, or stop by the store if you would prefer to pay in cash.

To register, please visit our Eventbrite page.


First Moves
The second Saturday of the month,

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.

D&D Encounters
Every Wednesday, 6:30pm

It's the return of the popular D&D Encounters program on Wednesday night! Come join in a game and try out the brand new system! Encounters are free, easy for beginners, and meant to be jumped into at any time. You must RSVP on Eventbrite for each week. RSVP will go live at 1PM Monday afternoons each week for that Wednesday's game (for example: you will be able to register for Wednesday, August 20's games at 1pm on Monday, August 18.)

**Please note that RSVP for one week only counts for that week. If you wish to play in the following week's session, you will need to RSVP the following Monday. If a Dungeon Master gets a pretty committed group together, we can discuss reducing the amount of seats per table that go up for RSVP.**

If you're interested in volunteering to run a table, please email Judy.


Kids' Magic: the Gathering Group
First Saturday of the month

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. 


Kids' RPG Play Group

Second Saturday of the month,

**August Kids RPG Group has been cancelled. This event will resume in September!**

We've noticed a few of our younger patrons with an interest in tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons, so we've decided to offer a monthly group specifically for our under-20 crowd. We'll teach a variety of role-playing games, from basic rules and how to play to world-building and creating your own campaigns. 

We recommend this group to kids who have a real interest in playing, and who have the patience to sit through an entire game. They must be able to pay attention to what the Game Master is telling them, and be able to work with others as a team. 

There is a maximum of 5 seats available per table. Cost per session is $10. Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page.


Super Moves Advanced Game Club Summer Session
Wednesdays 4pm-5:30pm
June 25 - August 20


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 $10/class.
