On the second Sunday of every month, Fort Meigs holds an event where families are invited to play tabletop games together.
During “Second Sunday Games,” there are two categories: Kids and Historical Miniatures.
The Kids category includes simple games for little ones to learn numbers and sportsmanship skills. They get to enjoy playing easy and fast paced games that encourages adventure and decision making.
Older kids and adults are invited to participate in the Historical Miniatures category. These scenarios will teach participants about history and commanding an army as they are taken through time to historic battles from Ancient Greece to modern times.
Fort Meigs staff and volunteers monitor these games.
