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

For a night of fun, laughter, and friendly competition, you’ll find traditional Chinese games, including 跳棋(tiào qí) – Chinese Checker, 象棋 (xiàng qí) – Chinese Chess, 大老二(dà lǎo èr) – Big Two, familiar family games like Uno, Monopoly and Pictionary, as well as others such as “Word Capture”, “Talkin Guess”, “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 exploration. Curious? Come have fun and take on the challenge!
