"The way to have Power is to take it" - William "Boss" Tweed

Tammany Hall is a game of backstabbing, corruption, temporary alliances, and taking power at all costs. If you want to rule New York, you are going to need to play the city's growing immigrant populations against one another. Help the immigrant groups who owe you political favors, call in those favors to slander your rivals, and win elections.

In Tammany Hall, players help immigrants settle in New York, collect political favors from those immigrant groups, send ward bosses into Manhattan to secure votes, and slander political opponents. An election is held at the end of every fourth year, and the player who uses his power base best will be elected mayor. The Mayor's grip on the city is tenuous at best. After every election, the Mayor must pay off his political rivals by placing them in offices that they can wield to try to take control of the city. Every player is your friend, every player is your enemy.

Tammany Hall was the political machine that dominated New York City politics by organizing the immigrant populations. While the organization's influence spanned from its founding in the 1790s to its collapse in the 1960s, this game is set in lower Manhattan roughly between 1850 and 1870 – the era of Boss Tweed.

This pure negotiation game pits the players as Renaissance era families that are engaging in rampant nepotism. Players are seeking positions in the other families' businesses, and to further that pursuit players offer bribes. However, once accepting a bribe, the 'bought' player is under absolutely no obligation to honor the highest briber or any other verbal deal. In a word, this game is vicious.

Community is important and we look forward to building on the success of the event to make sure there is always a friendly welcoming place to gather in games and camaraderie. If you would like to be involved as part of the planning team, please reach out to PwYF with an email to info@PwYF.ca

We have received a lot of interest from people to be involved in a ChewsDay Challenge committee. This message is a reminder to send an email to info@PwYF.ca if you are interested in being involved in either planning the weekly event or being an ambassador. We are going to finalize our team soon and want to make sure anyone who is interested in being involved is on the team.

"A lively game of horse racing where players bet on several of seven horses to try to gain the most money by the end of the game.

Players roll the die and choose which horse you want to move from those not taken their turn yet. The seven horses vary in strength, but even the weakest horses have some amazing bursts of speed. Players bet on the horses before each race and so either co-operate or compete to get their horses over the line. There are money tokens now for the winners, but not enough supplied in the game to pay out properly."

For Immediate Release

PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD ADOPTS WEEKLY CHEWSDAY CHALLENGE GAMING EVENT

(Regina, SK) Play with Your Food, (PwYF), will assume the planning and running of the ChewsDay Challenge board game night at Boston Pizza, North Albert Street, starting in March of 2023.

In light of the successful relaunch of the Play with Your Food board game charity event, Boston Pizza General Manager, Mac Grassick, has contacted the Play with Your Food team to see about running the weekly ChewsDay Challenge board game event. He expressed interest in re-establishing attendance levels to pre-pandemic levels.

The Play with Your Food executive team has accepted the offer to manage and grow the event and feel that the recent success and growth of Play with Your Food is indicative of a strong desire in our community to continue with important events such as these. With the upcoming closure of the SaskGames website, PwYF is currently exploring electronic options for how to organize this weekly game night going forward. Please bear with us as we work to put the infrastructure in place for ChewsDay Challenge.

Community is important and we look forward to building on the success of the event to make sure there is always a friendly welcoming place to gather in games and camaraderie. If you would like to be involved as part of the planning team, please reach out to PwYF with an email to info@PwYF.ca
