International Games Month is an initiative of the American Library Association, in collaboration with the Australian Library and Information Association, L’Associazione Italiana Biblioteche, and Nordic Game Week, and Finnish Games Week to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.
Star Trek: Chrono-Trek During the game, players travel backwards and forwards through history, doing all those things people have always dreamed of using time travel to do: Visiting the great moments of the past, peeking into the future, collecting up artifacts, coming to grips with the paradoxes of time travel, and of course, changing pivotal events and altering the course of history itself.
Looney Labs will be donating 200 copies of Star Trek: Chrono-Trek to libraries this year. To be signed up for the drawing be sure to indicate your interest on the IGM registration form.
- Red Raven Games
Knight Fall is an asymmetrical team game for one to six players. One team controls the knights, who must protect the elders and withstand the demons until dawn. The other team controls the demons, who seek to break the seal to the underworld before morning.
Red Raven Games will be donating 50 copies of Knight Fall to libraries this year. They will also be providing 100 libraries with a discount code worth 50% off on all of their games (except Distant Skies). To be signed up for the drawing be sure to indicate your interest on the IGM registration form.
Roll For Combat has donated 20 copies of the Battlezoo Bestiary and 20 copies of Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons! We will draw 15 US libraries and 5 of our International library friends. Near the end of International Games Month we will draw 100 more libraries to receive a discount code worth 30% for your total purchase from their store. With books for both 5e and Pf2e there should be something for everyone!
