Last Sunday, I had the pleasure to attend another cool board game event, this time in Guangzhou. The event was hosted at a great board game cafe (DaFenQi) run by a friendly bunch of guys. After registering, they got the crowd excited by talking about the newest game release from Kickstarter and they held prize drawings for some awesome games! They had a sweet buffet of snacks for everyone, and I got to meet some of the big names in the industry. Finally I settled in for a gaming session with some friends. Overall a great day!

In a Creative Park, with other small coffee shops and businesses, a great location! Easy to get to by metro.

Thanks to everyone for their hard work for setting up these cool events in Guangzhou!
A lot of their games are perfect for starting a gaming club in international schools, or for English corners for upper primary grades. A lot of games are great for adult students to relax, practicing speaking and listening while learning a lot about culture and giving them a new hobby they can use to make more foreign friends! Board games are also a great way to connect with other teachers in your town, if you’re not the type that likes to hang out at bars or clubs, it’s a perfect way to make new friends!
