Are you tired of your everyday routine? Looking for an alternative form of fun besides video games? Are you a closet board game fanatic, but canâ€™t find anyone with the same interests?
Well look no further than Humber North, where veteran club Table Tops has returned to deliver another year of interactive and electronic-free fun!
Table Tops was established to encourage students to unplug from their technology-filled lives and indulge in a variety of tabletop games with like-minded individuals.
As current club president, James Grant-Henderson says, â€œ[Table Tops] lets people de-stress, gives them a chance to get away from their phones, get away from their electronics and, have fun.â€
The club has two branches: one dedicated to collectible card games and the other for board games. If your interests rest inÂ card games, then you can expect duel matches featuring a number of fan favorites, including â€˜Yu-Gi-Ohâ€™ and â€˜Magic: The Gathering.â€™ Board game enthusiasts can revel in fantasy-themed games like â€˜Ultimate Werewolfâ€™ and â€˜Game of Thronesâ€™, but donâ€™t be discouraged if thatâ€™s not your jam! Familiar games like ‘Monopoly’, chess and checkers are popular selections among club members.
This year, students can anticipate a variety of exciting activities, including an upcoming Magic: The Gathering tournament happening at IGNITEâ€™s Comic Expo on October 3rd at the North Campus. Other activities to look out for include Sci-Fi horror themed games near Halloween, including â€˜Betrayal at House on the Hillâ€™ and â€˜Arkham Horror.â€™
So what type of members is Table Tops looking for? Grant-Henderson says, â€œAnyone and everyone who enjoys having a fun time without their cellphones, without their laptops, and just enjoys sitting down, playing a board game and having fun.â€ The club welcomes students whoâ€™ve never played any type of tabletop game, offering to teach those interested in learning!
The club operates on a drop-in basis every Wednesday and Friday between 10am-5pm in room KX203. Studentâ€™s can play a game between classes, or stop by during their lunch break.
