Looking for a new game for your next game night? Look no further than BasGame 2017, the fourth annual Basel board game celebration. You can browse through the available games yourself or ask for suggestions from staff and even try the games before you buy. And if you have a favorite game sitting on your shelf at home but never enough people to play with, bring it along. Space is limited, so get your tickets in advance! Find more information and purchase tickets on the BasGame site or their Facebook event page.
Volta Bräu is hosting Craft Beer Saturdays throughout 2017, where other beer brewers bring a selection of their beers, give samples, and answer questions. This Saturday evening, they’re being joined by Samuel and Tobias of Blackwell Brewery.
Rain or shine, get out of the house this weekend and enjoy Basel!
