Join us to play games against empire

RiVAL, the ReImagining Value Action Lab, is pleased to host an occasional games night where we play and hopefully begin to develop social-justice themed board games.

Below, you can find a list of upcoming dates for our gaming evenings. You can also check our events page for the latest.

No experience is necessary. Please feel free to bring a beverage and a snack to share. We enjoy a little good-natured competition but "winning" is not the objective. Rather, we are interested in exploring how board-games and other forms of participatory learning and tactical frivolity have been and could be used as vehicles to radicalize the imagination and help us think anew about our struggles for social justice. We also believe that play and fun are part of the means and the ends of social justice.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We are eager to play with you!
