Craig Girard, a board game-loving father, decided to share that love with Fluvanna’s middle school students by creating the Youth Boardgaming League.
Every Thursday after school, about 10 students gather with Girard and Vinnie Carrion, a fellow game-loving dad, to play board games and try their hand at creating new ones.
And we’re not talking Life, Monopoly or checkers.
When seventh graders Noah Young and Aidan Girard started playing games as toddlers and preschoolers, their favorites weren’t Chutes and Ladders or Memory. Noah’s favorite game was chess. Aidan said he never played “those classic games.” His favorite was Bakugan.It’s a board game inspired by Bakugan Battle Brawlers, a Japanese-Canadian television series.
