Meet the Board Game Club!

From seniors to freshmen everyone is welcome to join in on the game boarding fun. The club
holds holiday themed parties and the upcoming Easter party is the club’s biggest event of the
year. Founder and President Ariel McCoy and returning members can vouch for the fun times

they’ve shared.

“I am a very busy person and I do a lot of things involved in the school but I never had anything
to do on Wednesdays. So, instead of just doing nothing, I decided to do something better with
myself and I founded the club.” — Founder and President, Ariel McCoy.

moderator Mrs. Pedder. The club has expanded to a wide variety of games including a new card
game centered on seeing who is the best at persuading others to join an imaginary and outrageouscause. Classics like Monopoly,
Apples to Apples, and Clue are included as well.

people and make new friends.” — Garret Miller 2020’ Board Game Manager

pizza, and friends is the main appeal of the club. Interested students can join the club every
Wednesday after school in room 304.

We’re like a family. We make sure everyone knows when we having a meeting, and we all
come and play games. Once you’re officially in the club, you stay in the club,” said Ariel McCoy.
Be there or be board.
