What is English Board Game Night?

ボードゲームイベントとは?

アップル・トゥ・アップルス、スプラッシュ、インカの黄金、パス・ザ・ピッグスというなゲームは聞いた事がありますか?ボードゲームイベントは、あらゆる年齢の人々が集まって、様々な国のゲームで遊びます。参加者、ボランティア、JOMO JETメンバーの皆さんにとってはこのイベントがとても気に入っており、ほぼ1か月に1回開催しています。金曜日の夜や土曜日/日曜日の午後など、県内で開催されるイベントにぜひご参加ください。

イベントの名は「ボードゲーム」ですが、実際には、ボードゲームだけでなく、カードゲーム、リズムゲーム、スタッキングゲーム、スピードゲーム、英語を使用したゲームなど、色々な種類のゲームを提供しています。イベントごとに異なるので、毎回新しいものを試すことができます。

ただし、ゲームだけではありません! JOMO JETメンバーや他の参加者とおしゃべりしながら無料のスナックやソフトドリンクを楽しむことができます。ぜひ休憩時間の時にほかの参加者やJOMO JETメンバーと会話しましょう。季節によっては、クリスマス、聖パトリックの日などがあります。初めて参加する方も楽しめるボードゲームイベントです!

English Board Game Night is a JOMO JET event hosted once or twice every two months in different cities across Gunma prefecture. It is chance for the members of the Gunma community to practice their English and Japanese skills, get to know each other, and play exciting board games. Currently, we rotate board games nights between Takasaki, Maebashi, Kiryu, Fujioka, Isesaki, and Nakanojo. Occasionally, the board games nights are co-hosted by JOMO JET and community organizations such as Gunma International Club.

Apples to Apples, Splash, Incan Gold, Pass the Pigs… Do any of these games sound familiar to you? Our Board Game Events are fun gatherings which provide an opportunity for people of all ages to come together and enjoy games from different countries. Participants, volunteers, and JOMO JET members all love this exciting event so much that we host one just about every other month! Whether it’s a Friday night or a Saturday/Sunday afternoon, we hope that you will join us for one of our events taking place around the prefecture!

Although the event name says “Board Game,” we actually offer many kinds of games beyond just board games. For example, card games, rhythm games, stacking games, speed games, and games using English. We try to mix up our game selection from event to event, so you can try something new each time. 

However, it’s not only about the games! There are built-in break times where people can enjoy free snacks and soft drinks while chatting with JOMO JET members and other participants. Depending on the season, we like to add some flair to our events by choosing holiday themes, like Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, etc. 

So whether you’ve been coming to our events for a while, or you’re looking to join for the first time, one of our Board Game Events will be perfect for you! If you are interested in joining the board game nights, look out for our event promotional flyers on this website, on facebook, or through email.
