Try: Good Sport Night - Virtual

When: Sunday, April 11th, 5pm-9:30pm

Where: Virtual


Their first ever fully virtual Good Sport Night! Rather than gathering as a group like they usually do, this virtual event is set up for groups of 2-6 people in 90 minute time slots via zoom. You do NOT have to be in the same location as the other players in your group, so invite your pals from anywhere to join you! It’s recommended that each participant has a computer or tablet of their own to use (even if you’re in the same room).

You can play from anywhere and all you need is an internet connection, access to Google Drive and Zoom, and a computer or tablet for each player. The activity level is very low and reading intensive.
