Its time to dust off Candyland, Monopoly, Clue, Twister and more. Embrace childhood favorites Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Washington County Museums Get Your Game On: Retro Game Night, from 5 to 8 p.m.
The Interactive Museum of Gaming and Puzzlery will be the featured guest, presenting an exhibit on original Native American games of the Pacific Northwest tribes and a 6:15 p.m. talk about the history of games and puzzles.
IMGP staff will also bring along some of the more unusual games in their vast collection, some very rare and representative of different time periods, such as Black and White, a race relation game dating to the late 1960s.
When the weather is cold and dreary, many of us remember thats when the board games came out to keep us entertained, said Marcia Hale, the museums director of guest services and public programs.
The event is for ages 21 and older. Snacks and beverages are served.
Ticket prices are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets purchased in blocks of five or more are $10 each.
