The Community Boardgame Network is a not-for-profit humanitarian organization that utilizes board gaming, adventure, and creativity to add value to communities surrounding Great Escape Adventures and beyond. Check us out on Facebook:
Community ~ Geek Life & Organized Play

> Our focus is to enable community connection in creative ways; such as, Board Game conventions and meet-ups, Community Guilds & Organized Play, “Live” Real-world Escape Hunts, and Escape Games of all types; including Adventure-themed Leadership, Team Building, and Educational Seminars.

>>> Community Boardgame Network events are intentional about nurturing a welcoming, judgment-free, safe, and family-friendly environment that is mutually considerate of all people. We see ourselves as building bridges to foster acceptance, self-love, and courage; adding life-giving and caring value to people and communities.

The Community Boardgame Network derives its funding from event admission fees, donations from “rounding up to the next dollar” at your participating FLGS, raffles, contests, and corporate sponsors.

Funds are used to reduce ticket costs paid by attendees, provide a DKP reward system for community events, including give-a-ways, and other various creative ways to carry out our humanitarian mission.
