Board Game Speed Dating- Jamaica Plain

Before you decide to buy tickets, a few basics we should cover:

1) All are welcome. Many have asked the average age of the attendees, and we have found that most of the participants have been in their 20s and early 30s. We also offer events for women looking to date other women and men looking to date other men, and you can buy tickets for these at www.boardgamespeeddating.com.

2) Refunds are only available to those who cancel with more than 24 hours' notice (exceptions will be made for emergency situations on a case-by-case basis). After that, we're blowing the money from your ticket sale on something awesome and nonrefundable. This is partly because we love living a life of extravagance on someone else's dime, but also because it's not fair to everyone else if the attendance is lower than they thought it would be because a handful of people flaked at the 11th hour.

3) If we get to 24 hours before the event and still haven't sold five tickets for each gender we will cancel the event (and notify you). We think this is very unlikely but wanted to include a note about it in case that happened.

4) How many games we have and which ones we use will be based in part on how many people attend, so we can't tell you for sure what we'll have right now. But the goal is for all of them to be fun, light, easy-to-learn games. Selection will include games from both the something-you-have-played-before category and the something-you-haven't-played-before category. No, they are not games focused on sparking conversation, but we have a hunch that over the course of a game together, you'll have a gut instinct about whether or not you'd want to go on a date with someone all the same.

5) Desperately wish you could attend, but you have plans on this date or the tickets you want are sold out? We will be doing more of these, so shoot us an e-mail at host@playboardgameempire.com, and we can let you know when the next one is happening.

Game on!
