Hidden Agendas Launch Party - THIS FRIDAY

Big image

Get ready for some party games!

Hidden Agendas is finally getting it's long overdue launch party! Come join us in the PG Commons this Friday, 12/11 at 6PM for party games, English brews and treats from around the world!

We're going to be running a Hidden Agendas-themed game of Mafia, pitting the ordinary townsfolk of PG against the devious Lionheart Society! No preparation needed--all will be revealed at the party!

Hope to see you all there!

Next Friday, 12/18 - White Elephant Gift Exchange!

Next Friday's Happy Hour will feature a PG favorite--our annual White Elephant Gift Exchange!

For those of you unfamiliar with the White Elephant game, here's how it goes:

- Everyone participating brings a wrapped gift, valued at no more than $25 (we'll set up a wrapping station in the PG Commons next week!)

- Numbers are assigned at random to all participants.

- Players take turns opening gifts (or stealing gifts that have already been opened!) in the order that their numbers are drawn.

- Play continues until everyone has a gift to take home!

The White Elephant is always a ton of fun, so I'm hoping you'll all join us! It's open to Gemmers and non-Gemmers alike. Start thinking about what your gift will be soon!

Last year's White Elephant featured a Pikachu onesie, bottles of wine and whiskey, and miniature musical instruments. Can't wait to see what you all come up with this year!


"Star Wars: The Force and Lores" with Stephen Ku-bacca - Tuesday, 12/15 @ 6PM

In this session, our resident Jedi Master/Private Investigator/Purveyor of Puns Stephen Ku will be covering the intricacies of Episodes I-VI of the Star Wars universe thus far. There will be spoilers aplenty, but nothing from the new movie. This talk will be perfect for anyone looking to catch up on the series (without binge-watching all six films) before the new movie hits theaters later this month.
