NightLab was designed for adults to enjoy an evening out and explore scientific concepts while having a great time. Our first event, NightLab: Brainfreeze, was a huge hit as guests explored the body’s most complex organ – the brain!

The next adult programming event, NightLab: Game On!, is presented by Table Hopping Magazine! and will take place on Friday, May 10 from 6 to 8 p.m.

For centuries, games have been used to entertain, tell stories, teach lessons, and challenge minds, but there’s a lot of science that goes into the making – and playing – of an exciting, addictive game, from math and psychology to probability and programming. So whether your game is Candy Crush, Call of Duty, or Catan, join us at the MOST for a playful exploration of the science of gaming at Game On!, where you will:

  • Enjoy cash bar and drink specials from The York

  • Play vintage console and PC games from RetroGameCon
  • Play classic and contemporary tabletop games from Play the Game, Read the Story
