Where: EBC House 15

How to get in: Use the main entrance and follow the sound of merry board game players. If you cannot get in, call/text Tobias: the number will be at the entrance door.

We will provide some board games, but feel free to bring your own. We have some board games eligible for kids (6+), and we can bring the toy magnets from the last two events (let us know if you want). You are most welcome to bring friends and/or family members.

We will provide snacks and soft drinks, and we can order pizza (on your own expense).

We are looking forward to playing games with you on this special day, which occurs only once during a Ph.D lifetime :D
