The Family Games Store in Savage Mill (8600 Foundry Street, Savage, Maryland 20763) will be having its 11th Anniversary Celebration on October 29th and 30th with a weekend full of events. There will be discounts and sales all weekend. In addition, there will be game demos, a game swap, tournaments, Frankenmini Paint-and-Take, raffles, cake, prizes and so much more. Some of the details are evolving, so check out our web site for further details as we get closer to the event. We hope to see you there.

All Weekend!

Sales and Discounts:
All weekend we will be having discounts on all of our games. Spin the wheel and try and increase your discount or get something extra!

Game Swap:
We will be accepting games for the Game Swap from now until October 21st. The games will be available for purchase all weekend. If one or more of your games sells, you will receive store credit for the sale price. The games need to be complete and in reasonable condition, and you need to let us know how your games should be priced.  For listing sheets for our game swap, go here.  For instructions, go here.

Circuit Maze Time Trial:
Can you be the fastest to arrange the tokens and create a circuit that lights up the beacons? There will be three different difficulty levels depending on age. If you are the fastest at the end of the weekend you win a copy of the game! Check out the basics of the game here.

Meeple Guess:
Meeples are key to so many games. But a bunch of misfit meeples have invaded the store and taken residence in the same container! Can you confirm how many misfit meeples there are? The closest guess wins $25 dollars in store credit.

Saturday:
All Day:
Show up in costume before 7:00 PM and get a raffle ticket for the drawing. Get more raffle tickets by participating in our Game Demos.

The Pokemon Go! Pokestop next to the store will have lures all day Saturday. There is free wifi at Savage Mill if needed.

Game Demos: 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM or later!
We will be demoing a variety of games starting at 11:00 AM and running into game night. We are expecting to demo a variety of party and lighter games during the day and then some deeper games in the evening. During the day we are expecting to demo such things as Flick 'em Up!, Click Clack Lumberjack, Potion Explosion, and more. In the evening we are planning to demo Via Nebula, Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, Alan's Adventureland, and more.

In addition to games being demoed by store employees and volunteers, we are planning in bringing in some of the local game designers and companies to demo their games during the day. As things firm up we will update the web site.

For every game you demo you will get a raffle ticket. Around 7:00 PM on Saturday we will have a drawing for an awesome game at the end of the night.
