Northern Essex Community College’s Bacon Board Gamers, a student club, will host a Board Game Convention on Tuesday, Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Haverhill Campus, and everyone who enjoys board games is invited to attend.

The college has a large selection of board games, according to Mike Cross, faculty adviser to the club, and those attending are also invited to bring their own games.

“We’ll have tables set up for tournaments as well as cooperative board games,” says Cross, who calls the event “the largest and most exciting bacon-themed board gaming event in the history of the world.”

The Board Game Convention will be held in room 260 in the E Building on the college’s Haverhill Campus, 100 Elliott St., Haverhill.

The NECC Bacon Board Gamers Club was founded two years ago in response to a growing student interest in playing board games. The club meets every third Friday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the Haverhill Campus.
