Family Gaming Hall

For those planning to bring their young children to Breakout, but looking for a quieter and more inviting space to game in, we’ve set aside a dedicated a family-friendly space in our Family Gaming Hall and sponsored by Little Meeples.

The hall will have a hall manager who will be on hand throughout the day to help get families settled and set up with a game if they didn’t bring their own. A mini-library will be available with a selection of games geared towards younger children (ages 4-10) and volunteers will also be there who can help teach the games. Please note that while children of any age can play games in this hall, there must be at least one child of age 12 or under among each group of children playing, along with the participating adult(s) (parent or guardian). Also, any adult age 18 or over intending to play in this hall, must be accompanied by an attendee under the age of 18. Please check with the hall manager if you have any questions about these policies.

Recognizing that it’s exciting to win games, we’ll have a selection of donated Play-to-Win titles, however, only those children aged 12 or under are eligible to enter and win. Aside from this restriction, this feature follows the same Play-to-Win process as is used in the main board gaming hall. The raffle for the Play-to-Win will take place before this hall closes on Sunday afternoon. Check with the hall manager for details.

Another new and popular feature for 2019 was our Family Gaming Hall.
