Game of Thrones Game Day!

The season 7 finale is coming, and we felt there would be no better way to celebrate than by having a game day dedicated to Game of Thrones!

We'll have copies of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game, and Game of Thrones LCG (Card Game) available to play. Or if you have a game of your own, bring it in!

Remember, when you play the game of thrones you either win, or you wait for the next game to start and exact your revenge!
