Faculty/Staff Game Night @ the Library

Come to the second floor of the Courtright Memorial Library on July 11th, 4pm-6pm, and join us for a game night!  We’ll be teaching three games to anyone who wishes to learn them (Dixit; Ticket to Ride; Tsuro), and the rest of our game collection will be out and ready for play.  Pizza and drinks will be served; bring your friends and family!  Have a game from home you want to play?  No problem!  Feel free to bring your own.  At the end of the event, a drawing will be held and you could walk away with some games for your own collection!

If you are interested in attending, please email Kirsten (peninger@otterbein.edu) to let her know so she can get enough pizza for everyone!
