On Thursday, January 5th at 7pm, Fa La Lo will formally launch a new card game, Commander and Chief, with a challenge to all the presidential candidates in New Hampshire. Testing each player's knowledge of all 50 states and the electoral college, the game can be played by two or four players as each team plays to gain the electoral college votes necessary to become president.
Fa La Lo, at 7 Commercial Alley in downtown Portsmouth, is well known for its commitment to selling only locally made or fairly traded products. This game is its newest product, and it is perfect for residents of New Hampshire who are intimately involved in the election process.
At the January 5th event, owners Scott Segee and Liz Wright will teach participants how to play the game as they invite all guest to enjoy "campaign" refreshments. "We thought the game would be perfect for the candidates," says Segee. "It's a fun way to get to know the voters for the primary the following Tuesday." "We're aggressively non-partisan," adds Wright, "but we believe in our democratic process, so we want to welcome any of the candidates who would like to join us."
In previous years, Fa La Lo has hosted other "game nights," most notably teaching guests the Nepali game Goats and Tigers.
Fa La Lo in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire sells beautiful products ranging from women's clothing to furniture and kitchen ware, but what we are especially excited about this shop is that ALL its products are made Locally or by Fair Trade organizations.
Fa La Lo, which stands for Fair Labor and/or Local, is owned and run by two Portsmouth residents, Scott Segee and Liz Wright.
The store began when Wright had a guest on her co-hosted Portsmouth Community Radio program (which focuses on local non-profits) who talked about her fair trade organization, Handcrafting Justice. A professor at Rivier College in Nashua, NH Wright knew about the importance of fair trade and told Segee about the organization. They volunteered a few times with Handcrafting Justice, bought some items, and fell in love with the whole idea of how fair trade creates mutually beneficial situations for the creators and purchasers of the goods.
