Gunston Hall

18th-Century Game Night

Friday, February 8, 2019
6-9 p.m.
18th Century Beverage

Are you ready for a night of games? Many people in the 18th century played a variety of card, dice, and board games. Letters, journals, and even existing game pieces can tell us a lot about the games they played in George Mason's lifetime. A number of them are predecessors to games we still play today.

Learn how to play games like the Game of the Goose, and Whist at Gunston Hall. Game masters will help teach you how to play the games, converse on topics Mason was thinking about, and help you have a great time.

Registration includes snacks and beverages, including seasonal alcoholic drinks from the 18th century. You must be 21 or older to consume alcohol, and IDs will be checked at the event.

$35, $25 for members of Gunston Hall
