Tip: Gaming Activities

The term “games” refers to a lot more than just checkers, Monopoly, and video games. Games are structured activities that have goals, rules, challenges, and interaction, so as you’re planning your NGD2009 event, don’t forget that “games” includes activities like checkers (some libraries have purchased or received as donations life-size checkers or chess sets for even more unique fun), trivia, hopscotch, and the like.

You can also customize classics such as scavenger hunts, crossword puzzles, bingo, and trivia contests so that the content reflects your local community or your library. If you’re at a small library that’s just getting started with gaming, you don’t have to go high-tech to participate in this year’s National Gaming Day, and you can include all ages in your activities.
