Do you want to play a game?

Well, if you do, you're in luck. Because Breakout Saskatoon is going to change the way you play games in this incredible city.

Summer is pretty much here. And what things to do you like to do to make the most of it? Play kaiser on the patio? Throw horseshoes in the park? Set up a good old fashioned game of Risk on the picnic table under the light of a lantern?

There is nothing like getting together and bonding over a competitive game to make memories and have some laughs. And as you know Breakout Saskatoon is all about increasing the fun level and making memories.

Which is why, we will soon be opening a brand new, state of the art GAME LOUNGE!

That's right. The people you trust when it comes to providing an amazing adventure - whether it's a night out with your friends, to mark a special day with family, or to have a corporate team building event - is going to be launching a game lounge the likes of which this city has never seen. 1000 square feet. Over 100 games to choose from. Food. Beverages; oh yes, our game lounge will be licensed. All in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere that you'll want to return to again and again.

If you've never spent time at a game lounge, it is definitely something you have to experience. And if you've been to one before, you know the fun and excitement that a night of beer and board games can provide.

Who needs a paint night when you can get the gang together and have a hardcore game of Pictionary? Why hide indoors with your comedically competitive father-in-law when you can bring him out in public for the world to see just how much he gets into Settlers of Catan? It's all about sharing the experience of games with the people you love spending time with. After all, who doesn't have at least a few fond memories of family game night, as you try to get that green piece of pie that's stuck tight in the Trivial Pursuit game piece so your hilarious Uncle doesn't get the upper hand before you even get playing? And let's not even get started on the Monopoly moguls we all know, who live for those late night real estate marathon sessions that would run right down to the last white dollar bill.

At Breakout Saskatoon we are all about putting the fun back in your life.

And speaking of fun….. let's see who won our Picture Riddle contest.

But first the prize………

The Grand Prize Winner of our contest gets a lifetime membership to the all new Breakout Game Lounge (non-transferable). That means they can come in, sit down, and play to their heart's content without ever paying a fee.

As well, they will receive a Sherlock game donated by Dragon's Den (valued at over $70), a $50 gift certificate from Dragon's Den, a variety of puzzles donated by Puzzle Master, and a $15 gift certificate from Puzzle Master.

And on top of all that, an Escape Room experience for up to 6 people at Breakout Saskatoon, either our current location, or our new property where the Breakout Game Lounge is going to be located - a value of $150!

3 Clue

4 Monopoly
