For those who love all things Irish, Seanchai card game is for you. Easy to learn!  Easy to Play! 

Prizes for all levels of participation. You don’t need to know anything ahead of time; instruction will be given at the festival. Join us for the first ever Seanchai Tournament, a casual, low stress, fun experience held on Saturday, October 21, 2018. 

​Seanchai is a turn-based, storytelling card game that uses the culture of old Ireland as the basis for winning.  Seanchai presents a time when legendary heroes roamed the isle, and gods and goddesses interacted with man. Faeries can upset best laid plans and the dreaded Banshee or Dearg-Dur can remove an opponent’s human cards. Collect treasure, travel through beautiful landscapes and see the flora and fauna of Ireland.  Its all here… even a bit of Irish luck to help along the way.​​
