Do you enjoy board games, but have no one at home that likes to play them? Come join us at Annie's Book Stop of Worcester every Wednesday Night from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM and be social. Play games and meet new people. If you are tired of your computer games, or just want to try something different, board games can be very exciting and lots of fun!
