National Gaming Day

November 13, 2010 is National Gaming Day. Libaries are about much more than books, and National Gaming Day is just one way that we show that.  Libraries who register for National Gaming Day will participate in a variety of ways.  Some will host video game tournaments and others will host board game tournaments.  More than 1,800 libraries around the world will celebrate games this year, just the third year of NGD.

We’re celebrating here in Niles with a Yu-gi-oh! card tournament from 2:00-3:30pm. Bring your own deck to join in the fun and for a chance to win prizes. 

Anyone who wants to try out Wits & Wagers, the game we received for partcipating in National Gaming Day,  is also welcome.  Wits & Wagers is a party trivia game where you don’t need to know the answers to the questions in order to play!
