Do I need to know all the games to play in the tournament?
Although this is a tournament, a casual and friendly atmosphere are encouraged. You do not need to know any of the games to play in the GCBGB but knowing them would give you a strategic advantage. The rules for each game will be explained before starting, if needed, and any rules questions during the game will be answered.
Where is Hugin & Munin?
Hugin & Munin is located at 1664 Tecumseh Rd. E. Windsor.
I’d like to thank Hugin & Munin for their generosity in letting us use their store for this event. Please take the time to visit their web site, linked above. Normally we hold these at game conventions, which means it costs at least the entrance to the con. This one is entirely free!
