The Royal Tour Edition.
Comicon 2014 open gaming was a fabulous success. Our Kanata Board Gamers banner fluttered proudly from our library shelf. The open gaming area was packed for the whole con from the mega jenga to the King of Tokyo and Tri-game-a-thon tourneys to the Settler's qualifier.
CanGames 2014 Thanks to all the volunteers who came thru' to make open gaming a success: Mark/Mike,Mark,Paul, Boris, John, theSteve and Daryl! Thanks to the Kessel Run online store for the loan of table cloths! Cangames was grateful for our donation (from our membership cards).

You may bring food & drink (be neat!). We can rearrange the tables & chairs provided we return everything an keep things tidy.

Kanata Community Christian Reformed Church (KCCRC) is 46 Castlefrank Rd (directions follow). There is parking outside. Go straight through the front doors and you can't miss us!
$2.50 will be collected from each person. The first $30 collected is donated to our gracious venue. Any left over will go into a boardgame library fund. The war chest stands at $656.02. Check out the library (BGG user: KanataBoardGamers). Members can borrow from the library any time. Borrow it one session, bring it back for the next!
Visitors are always welcome. Come on in and check us out! There is no obligation, but if you decide to become a member it only costs $7.50 and entitles you to 10% discount cards at select local games stores.
Note if you want the discount cards (for Fandom II, Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, and Comic Book Shoppe), let me know & I'll have them made up. 100% of the $7.50 fee goes to Can Games 2014 to support kids games and the cards are good for 1 calendar year from the month you get them. You have donated $52.50 so far.
