Thanksgaming: 24 Hour Game-A-Thon
10am November 9th until 10am November 10th

 

This November 9th join us for this year's Thanksgaming, our first ever 24-hour Game-A-Thon event! (Oh, this surely shows that we have absolutely lost our minds!) Besides playing games all night we're going to have lots of unique gaming opportunities, such as finally getting to run Twilight Imperium 4 at Labyrinth, a 24 hour game of Diplomacy, or playing at a table with a celebrity board game designer. For more information about the special events happening, keep your eyes peeled to our event page as well as our social media.

The event will run from 10am on November 9th until 10am on November 10th.We are asking for a suggested donation of $50 (or join our extra life team and raise at least $50). Attendees will be able to earn entries into raffles and special events. There will also be free midnight snacks (donated by Mr. Henry's) and breakfast.  All money raised during this event will be donated to Children's National Hospital. 

Some of the special events we'll be running include: 
  • 24 Hour game of Diplomacy, one player's actions will be decided by highest donation each turn (even from the internet!)
  • Two games of Twilight Imperium 4, the epic space exploration game.
  • Keyforge: King of the Hill. Do you have what it takes to beat the King? Donate $2 to our Extra Life team to challenge whoever is on top, with the 4 longest champions getting a unique customized Labyrinth KeyForge deck.
  • Play a game with a board game celebrity designer! The first hour of the Game-A-Thon will have a silent auction in which you can bid for a seat to play with a board game celebrity. Jason Matthews, Elizabeth Hargrave, and Dave Chalker are confirmed to attend, and you never know who will show up at a Labyrinth event!
  • A tournament of one of our favorite games, Kingdomino! (With prizes!)
  • Labyrinth After Hours from 10pm to 6am - with a special playtest session of Say Anything Uncensored with North Star Games! 
  • A Wits and Wagers Game Show at 8pm
  • Demos of Hot New Games including Taverns of Tiefenthal and Oceans by North Star Games
  • Different Role Playing Games (including D&D) being played all day and night with our fantastic GM's. (Donations will get you re-rolls and/or control of an NPC!)
  • Auction for some special games and events
 
This is one of our final fundraisers of the year for Extra Life, the grassroots organization that raises money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through the power of games. We're on our way to raising $5,000 for Children's National, but we need your support to do it! Even if you can't make the Game-A-Thon you can always donate to our Extra Life team.

Small Business Saturday: Cookie Battle

Saturday, November 30th
10am to 6pm

 
This November 30th comes one of our favorite holidays of the entire year, Small Business Saturday! Established in 2010 as a way to support local brick and mortar stores, we always celebrate this holiday with our famous (or maybe infamous?) staff Cookie Battle. The Labyrinth staff will prepare our best cookies for you to taste and vote on with your change as donations to the teacher's wishlist fund.
 
Last year's contest came down to less than $1, our bakers have already started planning their elaborate cookies so it's sure to be a fierce battle. With last year's victor Ben abdicating his championship by moving back to Vermont, we're guaranteed a new winner this year. Who will be wearing the cookie crown at the end of the night? You decide with your donations!

And don't forget how important it is to support small local businesses this holiday season! We love our community, and we hope you will help keep us around. 

Two New Monthly Boozy Board Game Nights

Every second and third Wednesday of the month
6pm to 10pm

 
Many of you have come to our Boozy Board Game Nights at Mr. Henry's (still happening the first Sunday of every month) and have asked if we'll ever be doing events in different parts of the city. We're thrilled to partner with two of our favorite spots in DC to bring you even more gaming.  

The second Wednesday of every month is our brand new Boozy Board Game Night at Atlas Brew Works. Atlas is a neighborhood brewery known for making some of the tastiest beer in all of DC. Your $5 cover that helps us keep our demo library maintained will also get you a taster of beer when you arrive! November 13th will be our first event at Atlas Brew Works. Come out and enjoy the fun!

The past two months we've been running a new Boozy Board Game Night at one of our favorite local bars, Trusty's! Less than a block from the Potomac Avenue metro, the first two events have been a huge success with tons of happy gamers. Come enjoy a Trusty's Burger and a mason jar of beer as you play games all evening.

New Pokémon Set: Cosmic Eclipse

The next evolution of Pokémon is here! The latest set, Sun & Moon Cosmic Eclipse is set to drop November 1st (but we can sell it early on 10/29!) with over 200 new cards including Tag Team-GX trio cards as well as Tag Team Supporter cards. As always, Labyrinth has you covered with multiple Pokémon events throughout the month of November.

On November 3rd we're doing an extra sealed tournament, where you can get your hands on a prerelease pack and practice your deck building skills. Each participant will get a prerelease pack, consisting of 1 of 4 promo cards, a 23 card evolution pack, and 4 booster packs. You will construct a 40 card deck and battle it out with the other players. 

We will also be holding a regular Pokémon League, a Pokémon Sealed Circuit, and a Pokémon League Challenge in November. The Pokémon League is a great time to play casually with other trainers as well as trade and work on your decks. The Pokémon League Challenge is a 32 person Standard constructed tournament, where you bring your best standard legal deck and battle with other Pokémon trainers. The Pokémon Sealed Circuit is a fun, casual series of events where you buy a Prerelease kit, construct a deck, and play other Sealed Circuit participants over a course of 3 weeks to win fun prizes.
