Facilit8me Grapes & Games

02/16/21

Online, 5-530 PM ET, Register here!

The premise is two-fold: Grab your favorite grape (in wine form, of course) or cocktail/mocktail of your choice and spend 30 minutes with us as we talk digital games. We’ve asked and you’ve shared with us some of the games you’re using to stay connected with colleagues, friends and family during this period of social distancing. Prior to each session, you’ll vote on the game you want to try out and we’ll play it together. We’ll discuss what we like, what we don’t, possible modifications and share in a laugh or two along the way. So, join us for a low-key evening of grapes and games to learn, network and decompress.
