BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) — Joe Petri rolled the dice a couple of months ago and opened a place on Grant street in Buffalo where people can gather to play games-appropriately called GATHER & GAME. Everyday is game day around here. Visitors can purchase new games or browse the game library to pick something to play.

According to Joe "we have about a hundred and fifty games in our open game library-we get about a game a week that we add to our library."

Joe's favorite game to play right now is Key Forge. A card game that looks challenging. For people who want to learn to play, Joe says "we teach this game every Wednesday night and we teach a new board game every Thursday night, it's part of our event schedule."

There are snacks available and people can play for free on weekdays. Evenings and weekends it's $3.00 to play and an annual membership can be had for $25.00.

Gather & Game is located at 212 Grant St., Buffalo, NY 14212, (716) 248-1883 more information available at their website .
