Second Sunday Games
The second Sunday of every month, 2022
Once a month we offer a wide variety of tabletop games designed to engage all levels of the family. This game day is presented on the 2nd Sunday of every month. Games are divided into two basic categories:
Kids – Simple games for kids to learn their numbers and help with sportsmanship skills. These are easy, fast play, “roll the dice” games designed around adventure and decision making.
Historical Miniatures – For older kids and adults, Historical Miniatures will teach you about history as you command an army. The scenarios will re-create historic battles from Ancient Greece to Modern Times.
Game days are monitored by Fort Meigs Staff and Volunteers. It is an excellent way for parents to interact with their children in a fun, learning environment. Involvement with Second Sunday Games is included with the regular admission to Fort Meigs which also grants access to the Historic Fort itself, our museum, film room, and classroom space.
