This week is International Games Week!
What is International Games Week you ask?
International Games Week is an initiative run by volunteers from around the world to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.
Pretty cool right?! This year, in lieu of hosting gaming events in our libraries, we’re sharing some ideas from the American Library Association’s Gaming Round Table for free Print-and-Play games. These are games you can download, print, and play.
Caterpillar Feast (Venntik Games): Eat your way through the leaves before the owl finds you!
Pandemic: Hot Zone (Asmodee): The latest in the Pandemic series plus a wide range of other print and play games and resources can be found on the Asmodee Print and Play site (including some in languages other than English)
Rolling Realms (Stonemaier Games): Nine games on one page that highlight Stonemaier’s best work.
Orchard (Mark Tuck): Grab as much fruit as you can by overlapping tiles in the most advantageous way in this simple and clever game.
Mint Cooperative (Five24 Labs): A mint-based superhero game designed to fit in an Altoids tin.
Love Letter Sender (Z-man Games): A medieval card-based take on the world of online dating with very nice illustrations.
Bullfrogs (Thunderworks Games): Fight your way across lily pads in this nicely illustrated card game.
Check back throughout the week for more gaming from home ideas. Happy gaming!
