Join us at our Portsmouth location on Saturday, February 4 for a charity game event! We’re raising money for 9-year old Portsmouth-resident Ciara, who was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in December 2016, to assist with the increased financial demands of her treatment. Her family is bearing many financial burdens during this time, such as medical bills, traveling costs, and groceries. You can visit their Facebook page and GoFundMe page for additional information and to make a donation.

We are asking for a $5 suggested donation per person to participate in this event. We understand that our game events are always free, but all donations will go directly to Ciara’s family. Her family is also looking for assistance with fuel and food costs, and we will gladly accept donations of gas and grocery cards on their behalf. Diversions will donate 10% of sales on Saturday, February 4 to the cause.

All day gaming from 12:00pm to midnight
We’ll have room for over 50 people to play all day! Bring your games from home to share or grab any of our demos and have fun. We will have designated spaces to store your game bags.
