Come out and exercise your brain by having fun. No previous experience required. The game rules will be explained, and help provided by the game host if requested. Based on an actual historic event that occurred during August 1849 around Venice. In Garibaldi, the players must deduce Giuseppe Garibaldi's current location and apprehend him before he escapes. But he moves hidden on the map, only leaving traces of his presence for the last four turns. There's room for five players. For teens 15 -18, and adults of any age. Check-out the game on the website: www.boardgamegeek.com. Registration begins July 15.

Of course, you are welcome to work on anything else you choose, as well! Twisted Stitchers will meet on the 2nd Monday of each month. 16 years and older, please.
