According to the popularly received wisdom of mothers, "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye." But tonight at 6 p.m. at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org), no eyes will be endangered. First Friday: It's All Fun and Games celebrates the simple joys of all sorts of games, from classics like the hula hoop to board games and collectible card games, all the way through to TV game shows and video games. You can try your hand at the World Chess Hall of Fame's giant chess set, enter a trivia contest or thrill to classic episodes of Nickelodeon's Double Dare, Nick Arcade and Legends of the Hidden Temple. At 10 p.m. Edgar Wright's cult classic film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World screens in the Omnimax Theater (no charge). Admission to First Friday is free, but some activities require a small fee ($5 to $7).
