Upper Valley Gamers in Support of Irene Flood Relief

In the wake of catastrophic flooding in Vermont caused by tropical storm Irene, Upper Valley gamers are stepping up to support flood relief efforts through the tabletop game hobby:

  • Matt Golec has created a geeklist auction on Boardgamegeek. All proceeds from items listed will go to the Red Cross of the Vermont / New Hampshire Valley to aid in short term aid for flood victims. The auction ends Wednesday, September 7th.
  • On September 10th, Triple Play of West Lebanon hosts a Flood Benefit Game Day. Freewill donations are taken at the door, with a suggestion of $10. Games start at 10:00am when the store opens and continue on as long as there are people to play.

Gaming and Grilling in the Upper Valley

Green Mountain Gamers bring their traveling game days to the Upper Valley on June 18th at the grange hall in Norwich, Vermont with the Summer Game ‘n Grill.

Race for the Galaxy Tournament

Along with open play of board games, role-playing and more, there will be a Race for the Galaxy tournament. First place winner receives a $30 gift certificate generously donated by the Upper Valley’s friendly local game store, Triple Play.

Benefit Raffle for the Hartwell Family

The family of Rob Hartwell, member of the Border Board Games community in the Northeast Kingdom, has been dealing with medical and travel expenses in the recovery of Rob’s younger brother Zach from a malignant brain tumor. To help alleviate the financial hardship, Green Mountain Gamers will hold a benefit raffle, with all proceeds going to the Hartwell family.
