On Friday, February 9, 2018 from 6 to 8 p.m., join us for a fun night at Windsor Historical Society focused on beer and tavern games. You’ll have the chance to sample great beers from Thomas Hooker, Back East, Broad Brook, and Connecticut Valley Brewing Companies while learning some old-fashioned tavern games like Nine Men’s Morris; Fanorona; English Draughts (called Checkers today); dice games like ship, captain, crew; quoits; dominos, and solitaire. Fanorona and Nine Men’s Morris are both strategy games played on lined grids with black and white pieces similar to those used in Checkers. Instructions will be provided.

Education and Outreach Coordinator John Mooney will kick things off with a brief presentation about taverns in Connecticut and how games fit into tavern culture; slides of Windsor homes that used to be taverns and various tavern-related artifacts will continue as background images while you play games and sample beers and delicious refreshments. Please feel free to bring your own favorite board games to play and share, keeping in mind that today’s games are tomorrow’s historical artifacts. Cost for this program (open to age 21 and over only) is $12 for adults, and $10 for Historical Society members. For more information or to register online, go to windsorhistoricalsociety.org or call 860-688-3813 for information. The snow date is Saturday, February 10 starting at 6 p.m.
