WordNerds is one of my favorite Fresh City Life events to host- it’s pure old-fashioned fun. Nothing complicated, nothing messy, just a bunch of people get together to play games. Some WordNerds come with friends, while others wander in solo, hoping to catch a game and meet people, which they inevitably do.
The evening typically starts with smaller groups of gamers pouring over Scrabble boards and Boggle cubes scattered throughout the Novo Coffee/Mad Wine area, but by the end of the night we’ve all converged like amoeba for riotously funny games of Baldderdash or Speed Scrabble. Come 8:00, after being fueled by coffee and wine specials from our gracious hosts, our games grudgingly wind to an end, leaving us eager for next month’s gathering. I leave at the end of the night with one thought on my mind: a good time was had by all.
