Northern Essex Community College’s Bacon Board Gamers, a student club, will host their 4th semiannual all-day gaming marathon on Friday, August 22 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliot Street.

This event is free and open to the public and everyone who enjoys board games is invited to attend. Diversions Games of Portsmouth, Myriad Games of Salem, and Josh’s Toys & Games of Nashua have sponsored door prizes for the event.

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.

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