Friday Night Games - Fun Without Catching the 'Rona

COVID-19 has added that extra sour taste to an already painful year, but if you're the 'glass half full' kind of person then you can look beyond the struggles we're all dealing with and see some of the light that is shining through due to humanities ability to adapt and overcome. 

This year's obstacles have provided opportunities for people to come up with new ideas on how to live our lives in isolation and still enjoy ourselves. One such example is Magnificent Nerds, a high level gaming events agency that is based out of Sydney, Australia. Magnificent Nerds are hosting Friday Night Games which is an exciting new way to interact with fellow gamers and enjoy Friday nights in while keeping safe. Check out the statement below and I'll see you there for the games.
