New Card Game and January 2015 Events

RBU-Logo-150ReBuildUp will be debuting a new card game for 2-8 players that teaches about salesmanship, cost of goods sold, and gross margins in a fun way.  It works great as a pre-Economy, Jr. game and with a few extra card decks, you can have a tournament with up to 32 players at a time.

Teens in Greensboro are invited to come out and play on Tuesdays January 13th through 27th at Greensboro Library’s Glenwood, McGirt-Horton, and Hemphill branches.  Visit our Events page for specific dates and times.
