Friendly Competition at New Game Socials

Meet up with like-minded gamers at Bryant Park Game Socials. Special sessions for early birds, kids, and Scrabble fans.

Bryant Park Games, our exciting amenity at the 40th Street Plaza offering use of nearly 40 tabletop games free of charge, is entering a new era with a series of Game Socials. Created so that enthusiasts of various games can be certain to meet up with similarly-skilled players, Game Socials combine sociability and keen competition.

Beginning May 1, there’s one each day: Early Bird Socials on Mondays and Wednesdays to kick-start your cranium, Board Game Socials on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Party Game Socials on Friday evenings to get your weekend started, and Kids Time Game Socials on Saturdays and Sundays. And on Tuesday evenings, we invite serious wordsmiths to our Scrabble Game Social. Click here for the entire schedule.

Also at the game tables this season is a series of Mah Jongg clinics conducted by Linda Fisher. Ms. Fisher teaches the basics of this classic strategy game from China. Afternoon classes are held from 3:00-4:30pm on May 22; June 14 and 19; July 5 and 17; and August 2, 14, and 30.

There will also be four evening Mah Jongg clinics from 6:00-7:30pm on June 2 and 30, July 7, and August 4. The season culminates with a six-hour Mah Jongg Marathon on September 1.
