The Gautam Sen Memorial Boardgames Museum will be inaugurated in a simple ceremony on 18 September (Sunday) from 4 p.m to 5:30 p.m, in Kolkata, India. As the space of the museum is at present rather tiny, those interested in attending are requested to kindly register early so we can plan for numbers. The link for registration is here:
