Where Is It?

The program takes place at Knight Moves Cafe, just down the street from Eureka! We have tons of space to play, and snacks and lunch are served on the premises. Campers have acccess to our entire demo library of 1,000+ games housed at the cafe!



Who's Invited?

Eureka!'s Vacation Game Program is geared to kids 10 to 15 years old, who like to play games - especially strategy games! We usually have a good mix of girls and boys at our program, across the entire age range we serve.

We occasionally make exceptions to our age requirements for 8- or 9-year-old kids who have extensive experience playing strategy games, or for older teens who have enjoyed our program and don't want to leave!


Most Importantly, What Is It?

We take over Knight Moves Cafe and provide tons of games! We go beyond the old chestnuts of Risk and Monopoly into the innovative world of contemporary strategy games: faster-paced games that are far more skill than luck, and may call on our powers of reasoning, spatial skills, resource management, negotiation, cooperation, risk management, and logical deduction. In addition to popular titles like Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Dominion we bring our latest favorites and hot new releases!

Eureka! staff - all huge game fans who know the ins and outs of our library - teach the rules, lend some guidance on strategy, and sometimes play along. Many games are always running simultaneously, and the games played are chosen by everybody there - but our mission is for kids to try many types of games as possible, and to mix up partners and tables over the course of the week.
