- afterschool activity zones (if a staff person teaches children/teens how to play various games, they will get hooked on the competition and activity)
- elementary school centers (many games also build literacy and math skills - commitment to learning)
- neighborhood hangout time (when 8 rowdy boys cram into your house on a rainy day!)
- church socials or coffee houses (games provide a great way for adult volunteers and youth to build supportive relationships!)
- road trips (use tupperware to hold card stacks)
- sports tournaments (games are easy to transport, and are great for calm entertainment between games/events)
