6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12 / Teazer World Tea Market, in the Galleria downtown / Fresno Board Gamers on Facebook / Free
Lest you think that all gaming is done via video, there is Fresno Board Gamers, a loose collection of area enthusiasts who enjoy playing in a more social setting, usually while sitting around a table.
The group acts as informational hub and keeps tabs on local gatherings and events — like the weekly game night at Teazer World Tea Market. The event is free and open to the public.
This is not Dungeons & Dragons in the basement or a family game night of Monopoly, which always seem to end badly. Here, gamers play card-based games like Magic the Gathering or contemporary board games like Kanban, which is based on the automotive assembly line.
