Why play games?
Games are a great way to socialize, relax, have a good laugh and spend time with friends.  It's a great way to meet people, and it's FUN.  You'll find that through games you'll make new friends and it's educational.  It's a great way to spend time with your friends without having to pay a lot of money.

I've never played a board game before...is it easy to learn?
Yes!  It's very easy.  There's nothing to be worried about.  We have a lot of great & friendly people willing to teach you games.  We often have people join us who have never played games before and have come back for more.  It's a lot of fun.  It's also a great way to make new international friends.  Please come visit us.

I'm just visiting Japan for a business trip/holidays...can I come to your game days?
Of course!  Please do.  We have many visitors that stop by.  Just contact us either through Yahoo Groups/Meetup/BGG and if there's a gaming event on, you're more than welcome to join us.  If there's a favourite game you wish to play, feel free to bring that also.
