Info

Sample great beers from Back East, or wines if you prefer, and sample snacks while learning about or renewing your acquaintance with old-fashioned tavern games like quoits, Nine Men's Morris; Fanorona; English Draughts (called Checkers today); cribbage; and dice games like ship, captain, crew; dominos, and solitaire.  Fanorona and Nine Men's Morris are both strategy games played on lined grids with black and white pieces similar to those used in Checkers.  Instructions will be provided.

Education and Outreach Coordinator John Mooney will kick things off with a brief presentation about taverns in Connecticut and how games fit into tavern culture; slides of Windsor homes that used to be taverns and various tavern-related artifacts will continue as background images while you play games and imbibe. Please feel free to bring your own favorite board games to play and share, keeping in mind that today's games are tomorrow's historical artifacts. 

Open to ages 21 and up only. 

Snow date: February 1.
