Hilltown Families Board Game Swap


On Saturday, December 18th from 9-10am, Hilltown Families is sponsoring a free Board Game Swap in the community room at the Meekins Library in Williamsburg, MA. All community members are invited to bring in complete board games they’d like to swap.

Swapping board games with other families gives the community a chance to come together and discover new games while rejuvenating their collection of board games. Having new board games to explore with our kids opens up opportunities for families to spend time together, while allowing children to practice skills and concepts.

You can also bring in a donation for the Northampton Survival Center, Hilltown Pantry, and/or Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society … and do a little shopping at the Meekins Market.

What: Hilltown Families Board Game Swap
Where: Meekins Library Community Room (Williamsburg, MA)
When: Saturday, December 18th, 2010
Time: 9-10am
Cost: Free

    That’s an interesting idea, Amanda! Maybe something that could be done through the Hilltown Families Listserv? Families could share what pieces they are missing and see if any other family has it … of course that would mean the complete board game would become incomplete by making the incomplete board set complete … hmmmmm…

    Wouldn’t hurt to start the discuss. Are you on the HF Listserv? Join in if not: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hilltownfamilies/

    may I suggest a “partial game swap” where people bring in their ‘missing pieces’ games to HOPEFULLY get the missing parts. We have a Piranha Panic game with missing fish marbles. I’d love to complete the game, but don’t want to buy a completely new game. We also have extra cherries from HiHo Cherry-O that could be donated. just an idea….
