Day of Deduction: Learn-to-Play Double Feature @ Mayfair
Oct 26 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Time to do some sleuthing and deducing!

Join us for this free learn-to-play event, and prepare yourself for a Day of Deduction.

New players welcome! Your event host, Glenn, will teach the rules of these games and answer questions as we play.

More about Detective Club
Detective Club is a social deduction party game featuring beautiful, surreal artwork and intriguing player interactions! Each round, one player secretly writes a word in all-but-one of the other players’ notebooks. The player who does not know the word is the Conspirator this round. All players then take turns playing cards they feel best represent the word. When the word is revealed at the end of the round, each player explains why their cards make sense with the word. The player who didn’t know the word will have to quickly come up with an explanation in order to not be detected!

More about Trapwords
Your task seems simple. You are given a word, and you need your teammates to guess it. But the other team has already seen your word, and they have made a list of “trapwords” that you can’t say. You don’t know what’s on their list. And there’s a time limit. If you succeed, you advance to higher levels with more trapwords and additional challenges!

New players always welcome! Your Barrister host will teach the rules before we begin and provide guidance during gameplay.

More about Tiny Towns
You are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. In Tiny Towns, your town is represented by a 4×4 grid on which you will place resource cubes in specific layouts to construct buildings. When you’re the active player, you select a resource for everyone to place next, but when the next player goes, they’ll be selecting what you place next.

More about Cartographers
Queen Gimnax has ordered the reclamation of the northern lands. As a cartographer in her service, you are sent to map this territory, claiming it for the Kingdom of Nalos.  In Cartographers, players compete to earn the most reputation stars by the time four seasons have passed. Each season, players draw on their map sheets and earn reputation by carrying out the queen’s edicts before the season is over. The player with the most reputation stars at the end of winter wins.
