This PSA is brought to you by Losing at Board Games.

 

With the busy news cycle, and jobs, and eating grapes… it is easy to miss some upcoming Gaming Holidays.

Here at Troll in the Corner, we are here for you.  We’ve heard your cries, your tears, and your pleas, and we’ve put together a quick summary of the important upcoming Gaming Holidays.

Stay home while everyone else braves the shopping crowds.

Eat an apple.

Play your favorite single-player game.

And remember, the day after Thanksgiving is Eat an Apple, Play a Solo Game.

You’re only participating because you’re committed to board gaming.

 

 

December 15

Gaming in the Lot Day

Pick a parking space close to a major mall or shopping outlet.

Set up a table.

Play games while hordes of angry shoppers try to find a place to park.

See how long you can last before the mall cops escort you off the premises.

And remember, with all the holiday crazines…

 

The Troll is with you.

About Jon Beall

I am obsessed with all things related to board games. I suggests playing board games every day, even when my only audience is my three meeple-loving cats. I am married to the Political Mastermind, a gamer who beats me at least 70% of the time. This has led to the creation of "Losing at Board Games", a column which I write bi-weekly on Mondays.
