Bring back the nostalgic memories of gathering with friends at a heated game night and playing various card games and board games. Come join us on a Friday evening to meet new CLP friends, practice Chinese, and earn bonus marks for your CHIN courses!

For a night of fun, laughter, and friendly competition, you’ll find familiar family games like Uno, Monopoly, and Pictionary, as well as others such as “Who am I”, “Hot Potato”, and “Telephone” that will encourage teamwork and Chinese learning. For an interesting twist, we have created new forms of “edutainment” by altering some typical game rules to incorporate more language practice.
