Learn more about the North Shore Gamers HERE

North Shore Gamers is a meetup group dedicated to offering gaming events that are open and welcoming to all sorts of gamers. Whether you’re an old pro or brand new to the hobby, you’ll find a place here. The organizers have made a lot of friends in this group, and enjoy providing the opportunity for others to do the same.

We generally focus on strategy games, but there’s plenty of room for all sorts of genres, from dexterity games to word games, from trivia games to trick-taking games. We also tend to focus on learning new games, and are happy to teach anyone interested in trying something new. But, we also like to revisit old favorites from time to time. If it rates well on Board Game Geek ( (and even if not, as there are plenty of hidden gems on that site) it’ll likely get played at one of our events.

To give you an idea what to expect, here are some of the games currently getting a lot of play: Codenames, Pandemic Legacy, No Thanks!, Deep Sea Adventure, Tokaido, Dominion, 7 Wonders, and Splendor.


Pick #2: Boston International Kids Film Festival 

The Boston International Kids Film Festival highlights the talent of independent filmmakers everywhere while inspiring young people to share their own stories with the world.

Welcome to a weekend of workshops and screenings of family-friendly films, both professionally and student-made, hailing from countries that span the globe!

Filmmakers Collaborative created the BIKFF in 2013 with a goal of showing kids that making a film can be a powerful way to tell a story, express your emotions, state a point of view and ( more importantly) to have fun!

By screening amazing student-made films from around the world while at the same time offering these young filmmakers a look at professionally-made films created just for them, we are enabling the next generation of filmmakers to realize the power and potential of media.

The young filmmakers that participate in FC Academy, our after-school and summer filmmaking program, are given center stage at special blocks throughout the weekend, as we screen the short films that they have created in front of their family and friends.

Combine all that with hands-on workshops on stop-motion animation, storyboarding and filmmakers meet-ups and you are in for an event that families of Greater Boston will be enjoying for years to come!
