Pizza & Game Night!

Are you ready to play some games? Do you dare to challenge your YoungRUG colleagues? After last year’s successful Game Night, YoungRUG will organize the YoungRUG Game Night 2.0! Before we start to play games, we will eat pizza together for those who would like to join.

When: Wednesday 16 October, 18.00 - 21.00 hrs
Location: Kappenburgsoos (in the Basement of the Academy Building)
Registration: here!

The Game Night is free of charge and we will take care of beverages and snacks, but for the pizza we ask for a contribution (5 Euro).  

After the pizza, we will start at 19.00 hrs with the game-part of the evening. You can expect different types of board games. We are still looking for inspiring board games which are nice to play in an (international) group setting, are you willing to bring some yourself?! Then you can indicate this in the registration form.

Because we want to know how many of you we can expect, please register your presence for the Game Night here before 14 October. In the registration form, you can indicate if you would like to join for the pizza dinner as well.

We hope to see you on Wednesday 16 October!
