Giant Scrabble, Chess & Jenga fun
Do you have a hankering for traditional board games and just need someone to play with? How about meeting up once a month and playing with a friend or a total stranger and better still, that they are then GIANT sized?
Giant Chinese Checkers, Scrabble, Chess and Jenga are all to be found for FREE at Games Night in Brisbane's CBD at King George Square on the last Thursday of each month (check website for changes). There's an array of other games including Giant Connect Four and the timeless Snakes & Ladders which are a favourite with families. There are also a number of regular sized games to sit down with tables and chairs provided and play with friends or complete strangers.
Join Brisbane locals, students, tourists, families and just about everyone to gather around to play or just to watch. The Giant Games evening encourages audience interaction, team building with friends or work colleagues and individual participation. It's a great social leveler.
