Awesome Strategy Games

Sunday, March 19
LeBreton Gallery
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Are you a brilliant strategist or just lucky? Find out on our board game battlefield and create your own game. Fun for all ages and skill levels!

Luck can help you win or lose, but strategy is the real name of the game! Test your tactical skills and build alliances on our family-friendly battlefield of strategic board games. Players of all ages and skill levels are invited to team up for giant versions of Snakes and Ladders, Chess, Jenga, Connect 4 and Dominoes. Devise a battle plan for a match of chess or checkers, or expand your empire in Settlers of Catan. Capture your adversary’s flag in the war game Stratego, or sink the enemy fleet in Battleship. And if that’s not enough, we’ll even help you make your very own board game to take home!

Awesome Obstacles

Sunday, May 21
LeBreton Gallery, North Plaza (exterior)
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Test yourself against various physical obstacles in this day of fun for the whole family.

On every battlefield, there are obstacles. Soldiers, sailors and airmen have forded rivers, scaled cliffs, driven through dangerous landscapes and flown over gun emplacements. As part of its Awesome Sundays series, the Canadian War Museum is giving families an opportunity to test their own abilities against various types of physical obstacles.

Activities include an outdoor climbing wall courtesy of Altitude Gym, indoor parkour demonstrations and workshops, drone obstacle courses with R.H. Precision Unmanned, and radio-controlled tank courses — all to the beat of a live DJ.

Please note that all events are subject to change.
