This month we have four events happening in GameRT Land! The biggest one and one of our favorites is that all month long this month is International Games Month! Is your library having an International Games Month event? Tell us about it! We also have our monthly Board Meeting and two programs streaming on GameRT’s Twitch channel!
International Games Month 2022
All Month Long!
International Games Month 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.
International Games Month is all of November.

Low Stress High Mayhem – Halo ‘n’ Horns
Friday, November 11th – 10 AM Pacific, 11 AM Mountain, 12 PM Central, 1 PM Eastern
Low Stress High Mayhem is a TTRPG live play session streamed on Twitch. GameRT members will explain and play the game then talk about how it can be added to library programing. Join us as our hosts delve into the micro RPG Halo ‘n’ Horns by Connie Chang. “ Halo ‘n’ Horns is a comedy micro RPG for two GMs — an angel and a devil — and one player: the mortal they’re trying to win over.” Watch on Twitch!
Round Table Round Table – Games & Grants
Wednesday, November 16th – 10 AM Pacific, 11 AM Mountain, 12 PM Central, 1 PM Eastern
The Round Table Round Table is our newest Twitch program where we bring together several librarians and get a chance to chat about games, libraries, games in libraries, and all the ways we can bring play into our spaces. This session will focus on how grants can be used to bring in games and gaming into the library. Watch on Twitch!
