The Game Night formerly known as WordNerds

You say you're not a player? We think you are.

Fresh City Life has been presenting a monthly game night for a year or so; it's been perking along under the name WordNerds and drawing happy crowds to Mad Wine and Novo Coffee (our partners in this gathering for game players).

Scrabble has been a big draw, along with Boggle and the perennial Apples to Apples. This month, we're gonna shake things up a bit and add some old-fashioned card and board games to the mix. Do you like Scrabble and Boggle, but you'd really like to get in the wayback machine and play Clue or Taboo? Are you feeling steady enough to succeed at Operation? We've got you covered.

Plus you'll find these in our new tower of games: Jenga, Skip-Bo, Uno, Scattergories, Mancala, Dominoes, Cranium and fresh decks of cards.

We're still looking for a Trivial Pursuit game, but bring yours if you like -- I know there will be others who'd like to play.

It's all in a relaxed environment with delicious wines, freshly brewed artisan coffees and some great nibbles, too. And what shall we call it now? Game Night?

Wednesday, May 25, 5-8 p.m. and the last Wednesday of every month. MadWine at 13th Ave. and Acoma.

game testers wanted on July 28, 2013

In reply to by Hillary


This particular job is called as online game testing and the people doing it are known as online game testers.
Many jobs are on-site, meaning you will have to live or work where
the actual company is, but many companies will hire people to test their games at home, on their own systems, so your geographic location
doesn’t have to be an obstacle. The comprehensive curriculum comprises computer programming courses in
(1) C++ and Java (2) Direct X technologies (3) data structures (4)
artificial intelligence (5) 3D modeling (6) animation, and (7) game prototyping.
