Bwé Café on Washington Street!

Come join on Sunday 6/08 at 6:00 PM

Cards Against Humanity is like Apples to Apples for adults. We’ll start everyone off at a table with an equal number of guys and gals. After a few hilarious or awkward rounds you’ll switch tables and get to check out the wit of a whole new group of players! If you’ve played this before you know it’s a guaranteed night of laughs. If you haven’t played before, this is your opportunity to find out what all the fuss is about!  

Prizes awarded to the round winners!  Small Sweet munchies will be provided.

When you arrive we’ll give you a match card. Here is where you write the names of your fellow gamers. If you feel like you’d like to see a particulary funny player again, circle the Y next to their name. If they circle the “Y” next to your name on their match card, it’s a match and the next day you’ll both receive an email from MSD with each other’s email address.

Register here.
