RESERVING A TABLE:
If you are interested in reserving a table during one of the sessions please register and include the name of the game(s), along with a description in the “Notes” field of your registration. You may also email the information to the event coordinator from the link provided on the event page.
You are not required to register or reserve a table during a session to attend the event. However, registration is free and scheduling a session guarantees you a table for you to host a game or a seat at a scheduled game (as availability permits). You may reserve two morning or two evening sessions back-to-back if table availability permits. There is no time limit on the open tables but they are reserved for board game use only. The open tables are available on a first come, first served basis.
Lunch is not provided. Please bring your lunch or, if you wish, many of Brunswick’s fine dining establishments are readily available downtown (within walking distance from the library).
Please Note: Food and drink are not permitted at the game tables.
Directions to the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick can be found on the Curtis Memorial Library website. We will be holding the event in the Morrell Meeting Room which has a separate entrance to the left of the main library entrance.
Please do not park in the library’s (very small) parking lot. There is plenty of street-side, public parking on the streets that surround the library. Also, additional parking may be found behind the library and at the Hannaford parking lot nearby (all within walking distance).
If you have questions or comments regarding this event please contact the event coordinator using the contact information below.
We’d like to thank Rio Grande Games, GMT Games, Fantasy Flight Games, Slugfest Games, Minion Games and Maine’s own Merrymeeting Games for their contributions to the board game lending library, door prizes and for sponsoring this event.
