We seem to have more events than we know what to do with these days! With special releases, new games, designer demos, and community gatherings, our calendar is packed. Highlighted below are some we think you’ll love:


Learn & Play

We’re proud to continue offering our Learn & Play series in South Portland with the newly released Reef from the company that brought you Azul! Dive into the beauty of the oceans and discover the magnificent coral reef.  Match your shapes and patterns to the cards on the table before other players to score points! You can even stack the pieces of your reef!

This game plays within 30-45 minutes, plays with 2-4 players, and is recommended for ages 8 and up. We’re offering a full teach of this game on Saturday, November 3 and Saturday, November 17 from 2:00-4:00pm.


Beer and Board Games Series

We love partnering with local small businesses, and what goes better with board games than beer? (Nothing). Join us on Monday, November 5 at 6:00pm for Board Games & Beer at Loaded Question Brewing Co. in Portsmouth, and then on Monday, November 26 at 6:00pm for Diversions Game Night at Bad Lab Beer Co. in Somersworth.


Neighborhood Toy Store Day

Join us in celebrating the toy stores that make our community special and fun! We’re kicking off the holiday season with a morning of fun activities and specials for the whole family! The morning is full to the brim with demo games, a letters-to-Santa station, Diversions activity packet, refreshments, special offers, and a charity raffle: South Portland’s will benefit Chits & Bits and in Portsmouth we will work with G. Williker’s and Treehouse Toys to raise money for Gather! Saturday, November 10 from 9:00am to noon at both locations.



KeyForge is a new title from Fantasy Flight games and we’re very excited to support this new release. This card game offers a unique gaming experience, as players purchase pre-built decks that are completely unique and cannot be changed. You must learn to play your deck well in order to win against your opponents. We’re offering lots of support for this game. Both of our locations will host a Pre-Launch Event on Saturday, November 10 from 5:00-9:00pm where you can purchase a deck and learn to play ahead of the official release.  On Thursday, November 15 join us in Portsmouth for the official Launch Event where we will provide a teach and open play at 5:00pm, followed by a swiss-style tournament at 6:00pm. Portsmouth will begin offering Weekly KeyForge Tournaments on Thursday, November 29. Stay tuned for more details about regular events in our South Portland location.
