You’re Invited to Liberation Games!


Welcome to Liberation Games

choose a game
declare your cause
play to win


We're putting the FUN in FUNding our movements. We'll fill Spontaneous Celebrations with six simultaneous tournaments, plus an open game room. Only $20 to play, so buy in advance before it sells out. Each player chooses a game and declares a radical cause. All entry fees go to the radical cause of the tournament winner. 

Poker | Spades | Dominoes
*Each game has a Players Tournament and a Beginners Tournament

Open for self-organized gaming; choose your own game / bring your own game

The purpose of this event is to have fun while putting resources into organizing and movement building for collective liberation. Choose*** the cause you are playing for based on the following criteria: 
1. grassroots group or organization
2. engaged in some form of organizing or movement building
3. building toward justice and liberation
4. working locally in boston/new england

*If you've got a question about our criteria or a group choice, just email us! 
*If you're wondering who to choose, we suggest playing for any local/regional group funded by Resist or Haymarket People's Fund
*We reserve the right to deny any proceeds going to groups that don't fit the criteria. (Get that capitalist white supremacist heteropatriarchy sh&t outta here.)
