BF Day Boardgame Club

BF Day Boardgamers is a new after-school club at BF Day.  We are a small group of parent volunteers who love playing games and would like to host a learning, social, and fun after-school experience.

We are going to start out small with three meetings in December to sort of “play test” our ideas and format.

Our objectives are:

  • Create a fun, and engaging environment that promotes the learning process.
  • Growth in friendly and healthy competition, gracious winning, and respect for
    fellow players.
  • Engage logic, math, communication, and problem solving strategies.
  • Engage reading comprehension, converting read materials into action and
    applied strategy.
  • Experience true teamwork.

 

We’ve all been told that making mistakes is how we learn. A game setting is a perfect environment to make mistakes. It engages the learning process by getting feedback from your peers, seeing other options to a problem, and good old fashioned trial and error. A game gives us the freedom to fail without harmful consequences.  And that, is how we learn.
Oh, and by the way, it’s massive fun, too.

 

  • December 1st – Introductions, Goals and Club Charter.
    Catan Jr, Exploding Kittens, Splendor, Sushi Go, Forbidden Desert, more.
  • December 8th – Ticket to Ride with Card Kingdom
    Card Kingdom is bringing extra copies of the game and will lead game play.
  • December 15th – Favorite Free Play
