BRUNSWICK, Md. - During a rainy day at the beach or a dull evening at home, have you ever joined your family in a rousing round of Monkeys on the Moon or Bloody Mary: Further Intrigue in the Tudor Court?

If you're tired of Trouble, unmoved by Monopoly and no longer scintillated by Scrabble, there are choices beyond the aisles of your local superstore. Game day at Beans in the Belfry, a coffee shop in Brunswick, Md., is a portal to a world of novelty board games.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Berkeley County church is looking to Broadway to help raise money for the crisis in Kosovo. Trinity Lutheran Church on W.Va 45 in Arden will host show tunes with Trivial Pursuit at 7 p.m. Saturday in a fund-raiser for Doctors Without Borders, Donna Giguet said. Ellen McDaniel-Weissler, of Hedgesville, W.Va., created "Trivial Broadway" about six years ago as a useful outlet for "all the useless trivia I had mushed inside my head.
