STOH – Board Games Club

As its name suggests, members of this club are interested in playing all kinds of board games, ranging from modern games like ‘Carcassonne’, ‘Settlers’ or ‘Bang’ to classical ones, like chess, backgammon or GO. They meet at the CTU campus on top of ‘Strahov’ hill three times a week. Every now or then, the Club’s members organize a tournament for everyone who wants to play. However, usually it’s just playing and discussing any of the games that the Club owns and on the top of it, you are most welcome to bring in your favorite game and teach the others how to play it.
