Board Games Nights
The CSSS has run bi-weekly board games nights for 5+ years. We provide many board games that you can borrow and play with others! The event usually runs throughout an evening and we try and provide food.
Board games that we provide include:
- Settlers of Catan
- Code Names
- Exploding Kittens
- Apples to Apples
- Ticket to Ride
If you don't recognize all or any of those games, don't worry! There are always people there willing to teach you!
This event is a great way to meet new people and socialize with your peers!
If you want to request a particular boardgames, please contact the Assistant Director of Events.
