For a few years now, it seems board and card games have been making a serious comeback. And why shouldn’t they? Nerds have known it all along, playing games is cool. Different venues in the city, among which Rotown, have experimented with board game nights, but Jerona's favourite location for a competitive night of Secret Hitler has to be Stroop.

Jerona is a filmmaker, feminist, cat-lover and board game enthusiast. Hoping to create engaging cultural content that makes the city (and ultimately the world) a slightly better place. Or at least a bit more fun.
The Rotterdamse Dakendagen organized a multitude of events all over the city, from film screenings to parties, on exciting locations: rooftops, that otherwise would have been closed off to the public.
We attended Open Doek Festivals second edition; a carefully balanced and diverse program that offers something from everyone. From short films and seminars to talks ranging from local initiatives to big national directors.
