Exploit Boston Game Night at the Common Ground is happening on Tuesday, March 7th.

We have a lot of board and card games available to play. The "house game" is Apples to Apples -- there's always at least one group playing and you can easily jump into it even if you've never played it before. It's the sort of event where you can bring a group of friends or come alone and meet new people. It's a social event not a competitive tournament.

If you want to provide 30 minutes of the night's soundtrack, bring your iPod with your favorite tunes.

For extra prize drawing entries, grab links and banners from the event website. Each person who you send to the game site equals an extra chance to win something. Prizes include games, Common Ground gift certificate and stuff from Sam Adams.

Ages: 21+

Cost: Free Admission.

Please purchase food and/or drinks so that we do not need to charge a cover charge at the door. As an added bonus, the food at the Common Ground is very good. My recommendations include the potstickers, burgers, macaroni and cheese, and turkey reuben.

MBTA Directions: Take the Green Line's "B" train to the corner of Harvard/Comm Ave. Walk down Harvard Ave so that McDonald's is on your right and Marty's Liquors is on your left. The Common Ground is a few blocks ahead on the left at 85 Harvard Ave, after the set of lights. The #66 bus from Harvard Square stops around the corner at Harvard/Brighton Ave in front of Harper's Ferry.

What People Are Saying: Sarah Tomlinson at The Boston Globe said: "It's the perfect chance to make new friends and maybe even emerge as the board games champ you?ve always dreamt you could be." Robert Vassegh, publisher of Cheap Thrills Boston said: "If someone was playing a game, it was definitely a good atmosphere to jump into a new crowd. I met some cool people too!"

Event Frequency: Exploit Boston Game Night happens biweekly at the Common Ground. March dates are on the 7th and 21st.

There's an article in today's Sidekick section of The Boston Globe about Exploit Boston Game Night. It's on pages 8-9. I couldn't find the article online.
