Washington, DC 20001
Come enjoy German games and a glass of wine with the Shakespeare Theatre Company and the Goethe-Institut! Games by German designers are enjoying increasing popularity outside their native country and this evening of board and card games will feature classics such as Bohnanza alongside newer favorites including Asara, Settlers of Catan, Lost Cities and Carcassonne. Participants are invited to bring their favorite games and friends for the fun. One room will be reserved for playing games in German.
Friedrich Schiller’s classic play Wallenstein, translated and adapted by former poet laureate Robert Pinsky, starts March 29 at the Shakespeare Theatre Company. Join us and celebrate this epic story of war, intrigue, and loyalty tested with the Wallenstein board game! Developed by German designer Dirk Henn, the Wallenstein board game blends a classic “euro” mechanics-driven style with brilliant territory-control confrontation. Learn more about Wallenstein the board game and check out an interview with Dirk Henn.

In cooperation with Labyrinth Games and Puzzles.
