CNJM holds a gathering each month on a variety of eclectic topics that have included: guitar-making, military police dog demonstration, NJ tombstone markings, revolutionary war mutinies, and quantum physics proving love (to name a few). These presentations are usually held on the 2nd Friday at various locations.

Next gathering: New Time and Location!

Friday, November 10 -- Board meeting at six (CNJM members only), followed by games -- Eatontown, NJ

Gala Games Night
The games will begin immediately after the Board meeting ends. Please bring a side-dish or dessert to share. Java Joe, a consummate gamer, will be your host. Come and join CNJM for a night filled with great games and you’re sure to have a fun and enjoyable time. As always, guests are very welcome. Join in and learn a new game you haven’t played before or you can play ‘classic favorites’ that will also be available. Java Joe will supply playing cards and ‘classic favorites’ such as Scrabble, Go and Mille Bornes.

He will bring games from his collection which includes games played at Mensa Mind Games (MMG) over the years: Ticket to Ride, Dizios (MMG 2010 Mensa Select), Pyramix (MMG 2014 Mensa Select), the Harvest Festival (MMG 2015 Mensa Select), Musee (MMG 2015), Circular Reasoning (MMG 2016 Mensa Select), The Last Spike (MMG 2016 Mensa Select), and more!

You are encouraged to bring your own favorites to share with other Mensans. Feel free to contact Java Joe if there is a particular game you have always wanted to try - who knows, he might actually have it... We look forward to seeing you!
