Let your nerd flag fly!

Inside every one of us, there’s a nerd. Some of us let that nerd out, some of us hide it, and some of us deny it. Sometimes we are scared of it, afraid to let everyone know we watch the Big Bang Theory, or read comics, or play board games. We depend on those things to bring us joy, to build friendships, and help us through dark days. Paradox is here to tell you there’s no reason to hide or deny! This summer, we celebrate Nerd-Dependence Day Weekend, your inner nerd, and most of all your right to be whoever you want to be!

The whole country gets Independence Day but that’s just the beginning here because after the fireworks and the lake and the fire pits, we’ve got Nerd-Dependence day and it’s a whole weekend! Oh, sure, we love the lakes and our families and all the great memories, but we also love board games, comic books, and card games and that’s where the party at Paradox begins!

That’s why we party, that’s what we celebrate. Now here’s how we party:
