Into The Box: Toys, games, and more with Dillon Giancola

It's almost summer, and that means it's time to stay indoors and play board games. Well, on rainy days anyway.

It's almost summer, and that means it's time to stay indoors and play board games. Well, on rainy days anyway. But rain or shine, there are games and activities out there for families to get in to, ways to stay entertained no matter what the restrictions may be. 

Twice a month for the next three I'll be presenting a recap of my experience trying out the latest board game, disc golf and other outdoor activities, and maybe even starting a D&D campaign. 

I love to game, no matter that the game may be. And these days there are more games to try than ever. While it can be hard to find others interested in the same activity when getting into something new, there are a lot of people in the community already active in getting people together to participate in Settlers of Catan and games of UNO. So, each week I'll be adding a community component, talking to people in town whose aim is to promote community - and unity - through games. 

Best of all, you won't actually have to play the game with me, you just get to read about it and decide if you want to try it out for yourself. Because if we were at the same table, you would either not want to play because I kept winning, or not want to play because you caught me cheating. Either way, if you are in any way interested, you won't be disappointed after you experience the fun that only comes through board games, role playing games, and outdoor activities. 

Each game or activity will be available to pick up at The Northern Toy Box. It's a great time to get nerdy, so grab your favourite game off the shelf, dust it off, and stay tuned for the first one next week.
