On Friday nights at our store we stay open late for Go & Mah Jongg players.

As it turns out the Go players are not really dependable when it comes to showing up consistently and the Mah Jongg players are a group of cranky old elitists that groan when someone wants to learn the game.

Furthermore, we still have at least 2 tables not being used and we could always set up more card tables. So, I decided to expand the "offerings" and also advertise for games like Chess, Backgammon, Cribbage, Dominoes, Rummikub, and so on.

I've been trying to make a sign for it for the window and am not sure what to call it. At first I thought "Parlor Games," but when I wikipediaed that I learned that that term refers to games like charades and something called "Squeal Piggy Squeal."
Then I thought maybe "Classic Games" but wondered if that was too vague...

Any ideas?

Classic will mean different things to different people. I'm sure people could think it meant things like SFB or MtG. I can't think of anything better though. Perhaps "Classical Games" which may make people think of classical music.

I change my vote, Traditional Games is very good.

I think you should call it "SQUEAL PIGGY SQUEAL!"

Without knowing what kind of store you have, why not just call it an open game night and people can bring whatever they want to play? If you're open anyway and you have extra tables, why limit it to a specific set of games?

laugh This made my day.

Runehardt's suggestion of "Play the Classics" seems pretty effective to me.
