Gaming benefit for Calmer Choice

calmer choice

Calmer Choice is a pioneer in secular mindfulness across eight school districts on Cape Cod, bringing positive change to nearly 21,000 students since its inception in 2010. Now, we’re thrilled to offer a family fund raiser to help them reach their goal of serving more than 26,000 students by the end of the 2018-2019 school year.

Join us on Wednesday, February 27th at The Daily Brew Coffee House (map) , starting at 6:30 PM. There will be games (of course), snacks and delicious coffee (naturally) and because no RGL fund raiser would be complete without it, our third…

Hungry Hungry Hippos tournament! Assemble your team of two to compete to have your name inscribed on the Reboot Game Lab Hippo Trophy! Here’s how this works:

  • Assemble your team of two

  • Compete in bracket-style elimination against other teams

  • When it comes down to two, we have a head-to-head playoff and crown the Hippo Champions!

  • The winners get their names added to the trophy via permanent engraving, and may take selfies to share. Hippo bragging rights are on the line!

It’s a five-dollar buy-in to participate and of course all proceeds go to Calmer Choice and the Cape Cod students who benefit from their fantastic services.

Of course, Will and Dave will be on hand with piles of games for all ages to enjoy. Register for this free event below, and join us in a night of fun, laughter and a great cause.

Announcing board game “speed dating!”

board-games-1024x683.jpg

Meeting someone special can be agonizing. Board games are always awesome. What happens if you combine looking for someone with playing board games?

That’s exactly what we’re doing. Here’s how it works.

Imagine this: you’re in the beautiful lounge at The West End in Hyannis on Thursday, February 14. Game Gurus walk you through several simple, fun games, including classics you know and some new ones you might not. You play each with different people, getting a chance to meet fun singles, all the while enjoying adult beverages and delicious snacks.

At the end of the night, you write down the name of who you’d like to get to know better as a friend, and who might be a little more than that, on a card and hand it to the Game Gurus. If there are any matches in either column, the Gurus will make sure you get each others’ emails so you can coordinate a time to hang out.

You know that awkward silence that always happens when you’re meeting new people and no one knows what to say? Just concentrate on the game. Awkward silences, eliminated!

  • Best case scenario: You find the love of your life, discover new board games and meet lots of cool people.

  • Bad case scenario: Only one of the three above.

  • Worst case scenario: At least there’s games.

Feature: Dream Day on Cape Cod

Dream Day Cape Cod

Our first charity gaming event will benefit the incredible people at Dream Day on Cape Cod, an amazing and very deserving organization.

For 25 years, Dream Day has helped hundreds of families disconnect from the daily struggles of hospital and doctors’ visits and round-the clock care to reconnect with one another and to connect with others who understand and accept what they have been going through at its Camp Nan-Ke-Rafe, a 31-acre facility located adjacent to Nickerson State Park.

Each summer Dream Day operates eight sessions of family camp – bringing families together for a week of fun, family, and respite. Those families receive the chance to create loving, lasting memories that transcend illness and struggle.

All of Dream Day’s programs are at no cost to the families they serve.

We think that’s amazing. With your support, this much-needed program can continue for some incredible kids and their families.

Join us at Cape Cod Coffee in Hyannis (map) on Wednesday, December 5th for a fun, entertaining night of charity gaming, tournaments, raffles, auctions, food and drink to benefit this wonderful organization. We can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season, when the spirit of giving is at its strongest. Register below!

Mid-Cape gamers, we’re “popping up” at The West End in Hyannis this Wednesday, November 21, the day before Thanksgiving.

We call it the “Escape Your Family” edition.

They’re all here for the holiday to take over your house, question your life choices, talk politics and religion at the dinner table and make you wish for an escape hatch. Good news, we are that hatch!

Join us on Wednesday at 7:00 for great food you don’t have to cook yourself, drinks and lots and lots of board games. Hang out, make friends and play games without Uncle Tommy and Aunt Shirley. Ten bucks gets you unlimited, all-night gaming right at your table. See you then.
