TimeBank Tales: Let the Games Begin!

For our March TimeBank Tales event, we recently hosted a board game night at Sunnyvale Art Gallery & Cafe.

TimeBank members engaged in some friendly competition as they faced off against each other in various board games. From timeless classics like Clue, Scrabble and Racko to more obscure favorites like Hey, That’s My Fish! and Scotland Yard, there was something for everyone.

Throughout the evening, members formed connections as they bonded over their favorite board games and taught each other how to play. It was a friendly and positive group, encouraging each other along the way.

The inspiration for this particular TimeBank Tales came from TimeBank member Ruby, who has shared her love of “Euro-Style” board games with others in her community through the linkAges TimeBank.

Games have become a popular exchange with many of the linkAges TimeBank members. For Ruby and others, these board games serve as “brain exercise.”  It’s a great way to develop new connections, relieve some stress, stimulate the brain, and engage with other members who are looking for some company – all great for your health and well being!

TimeBank Tales reflect the monthly events where TimeBank members and guests from the community come together to share stories, laugh, learn and have fun. With the generous help of community partners, these diverse events help promote neighborly connections and shared interests.
