Tabletop Tuesdays: Chris Bennett & Suffragette Games at Hohbach Hall
Join game designer Chris Bennett to learn about how board games can help to drive interest in, and education about, the women's suffrage movement in the US and the UK. You will learn about several early board games from the 1900s and then delve deeper into more recent designs on the women's suffrage movement including Votes For Women and The Vote. You will get a chance to play at least one of the games at this event!
