What is a Squatter Event?
There are many sorts of Squatter events, ranging from a game of Squatter with a few friends in a cafe, somewhere; to a major Squatter tournament in a big venue such as local library or a community hall.
The key ingredient - a Squatter event involves playing a game of Squatter.
We encourage Squatter events because when people get together to play Squatter, and other tabletop games, they build small bridges of friendship. The more they play, the bigger the bridge grows. Sometimes these friendship-bridges are built inside a family which can help draw families together. We believe strong families are the foundation of strong communities.
While many games offer this as a benefit, some aspects of Squatter make it particularly suitable. Perhaps the best Squatter feature is it’s a game of co-operation, rather than a game of elimination.
Why not run your own Squatter event? We will help you. If you Register Your Squatter Event we will add the winner to the Hall-of-Fame. In some situations we can assist with a winners prize.
