If you, like Web Watch, love playing boardgames and videogames, then you need to pop over to your local libary on NOVEMBER 13th to celebrate NATIONAL GAMING DAY.
As part of the celebration, over 1800 participating libraries are going to try to set a world record for the LARGEST SIMULTANEOUS VIDEO GAME TOURNAMENT.
See? Who says that libraries need to be all quiet and stuffy?
The participating libraries are going to have a day of “family-friendly” video gaming and board gaming available, to encourage both family- and friend-interaction with other similarly minded people. Heck, you may even find enough people interested in playing SETTLERS OF CATAN that you can break out the SETTLERS OF CATAN EXPANSION PACK (suitable for 5-6 players) instead of playing with just the traditional four player version.
We understand using board games in the library’s community room as a way to draw visitors to the libary, but video games?
Why not? There are plenty of entertaining family-friendly games that are perfect for a libary get-together. And it ends up that National Gaming Day is a great way to showcase that today’s libraries are more than just books, magazines, and old people. Your local libary has a wide selection of DVDs, music, computer access, and other electronic resources – all things that you may not have available at home or school.
So pick up that 20-sided die, worn Scrabble tile bag, or set of Rock Band drumsticks and head down to your local library on November 13th to get your game on. You might just make a new friend or two.
