Get ready for a thrilling night of nostalgia and fun at SMO21: Game On! On Friday, June 16, the Science Museum Oklahoma’s adults-only (21+) event, SMO21, turns back the clock and with an evening filled with the games we all grew up loving.

From pixelated classics to the latest board game sensations, SMO21: Game On! promises an unforgettable adventure as we bring your favorite games to life. From card games to board games to role-playing games, SMO21 will have something for everyone.

“Games were such a huge part of my life when I was younger!” said Science Museum Oklahoma Educator Sarah Shafer. “Being a gamer doesn’t always look the same from person to person and we are super excited to offer activities that appeal to gamers of all types! From giant ravenous pachyderms to RPG character design, we got something for everyone.
