Do you love games? Free events? Free pizza and popcorn? Then this is a night for you! Join the High Point Museum Friday, February 16 for our second annual Family Game Night. This free event is open to people of all ages and lasts from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Play all different types of games including two board games created about our own city - “The Challenge High Point” and “Executive Market Game.” The Challenge High Point game is from the 1980s. It is a Monopoly style game where players buy and sell property to gain wealth. It features local businesses and attractions. The Executive Market Game was made by employees of Drexel Heritage Distinctive Home Furnishings in the 1960s about the High Point Furniture Market.
This fun evening will be full of all sorts of games featuring classic card and board games along with scavenger hunts and Pokémon Go. Lots of activities for this event including High Point trivia, photo booth, music and prizes.
“Family game night may seem a little old fashioned in this digital era, but we love this low-tech program,” Edith Brady, Museum Director, said. “It reminds us how families have traditionally enjoyed informal, personal time together, which is when the family stories really start to come out and get passed along to new generations.”
The High Point Museum, a division of the High Point Public Library, is dedicated to sharing Greater High Point’s history, providing perspective for current issues, and strengthening the sense of community.
