Game Grid Update – Cover Your Kingdom, Twitch, Discord & More!

Hello Hello Fellow Gamers!

A couple of exciting things to announce – including a special event & promo from Grandpa Beck’s Games!

Discord & Twitch

Initially we started out using Discord to run and host Magic: the Gathering events, and it’s been working out great!
Using a phone or webcam to play games is pretty dang close to playing in person, you can play real games, engage in real conversations, and have a ton of fun, all while staying home & healthy.

In the last week, we’ve been working hard to expand that experience for all of our gamers and are happy to announce that we’ve are ready to roll out some awesome new ways to connect and play games with your friends. Every night of the week (except Sunday) we are now streaming painting, games and more – and you can jump in on the fun too!

First – Play Games Live with Game Grid!
Using Discord + Twitch, you can get in on the fun and play games with us!
Our Game Master will set up the board on camera and run the game – you play the game by joining our Discord Voice Channel and telling the Game Master what you want to do on your turn.
So far we’ve played Azul, Zombicide and Codenames, and I have to say it’s been a ton of fun!
I actually hadn’t played Azul until Ben streamed it, and it was surprising how easy it was to watch the game on Twitch & tell Ben what I wanted to do on my turn.

Second – Paint Night!
Twice a week, Game Grid is streaming Paint Night with expert painters!
On Tuesday nights one of our staff or local painters will jump on and walk you through what they are currently painting.
And on Thursday BattleHaven’s Mike is streaming Paint Night with tips & tricks to make your minis look great!!
You can watch and follow along at home, or you can join in on Discord, ask for help and advice and get real time answers on the stream!

Finally – Watch it Played with Game Grid!
If you’re not sure about playing games over Discord, but still love seeing how games play or prefer to learn the rules via video, join us on Monday Nights!
Every Monday our staff is getting together to play games live on Twitch so you can see how to play, and how terrible we are at playing 🙂

We are live every night at 7pm, and here’s the current schedule:

  • Mondays
    • Watch it Played with Game Grid
  • Tuesdays
    • Paint Night!
  • Wednesdays
    • Play Games Live: Family & Strategy Games
    • Games like Azul, Splendor, Ticket to Ride & more!
  • Thursdays
    • Paint Night with Mike!
  • Fridays
    • Play Games Live: Adventure-in-a-Box
    • Games like Zombicide, Starcadia Quest, Death May Die & more!
  • Saturdays
    • Play Games Live: Party Games!
    • Games like Just One, Codenames, Wavelength & more!

If you are going a bit stir crazy, miss getting together for Game Nights, or just want to try something new, join us! The more the merrier, and as I said above, it’s been an absolute blast every time.

We are also looking for Volunteer Game Masters to help run our stream, Dungeon Masters so we can get some RPGs going on Twitch, and literally anyone else who wants to help out – get in contact with us on Discord or by email.

 

Cover Your Kingdom, Skull King & The Bears and the Bees!

Game Grid Lehi is hosting Jeff Beck, son of Grandpa Beck and lead designer for Cover Your Kingdom, for a night of games and a Q&A that you won’t want to miss!
Jeff will be here to walk us through playing Cover Your Kingdom, Skull King and The Bears and the Bees, three absolutely fantastic family games from Grandpa Beck’s Games.
Between each game he’ll be answering any questions you have about game design, publishing, or how they came up with the wacky cards for Cover Your Kingdom!

You can watch it live on our Twitch channel tonight at 7pm and join the conversation with us on Discord.
