Voting is open for the First Annual Platinum Play Awards!

GameRT is pleased to announce the opening of voting for the first annual Platinum Play Awards. These new awards will recognize best games for use in library collections and library programming. ALA GameRT members in good standing are encouraged to cast their votes and help identify games that represent excellence for libraries of all types.

Since International Games Month in November 2023, librarians and library support workers have submitted nominations for games for all different age groups published in the last two to ten years. Of the nominations, members of the GameRT List and Awards committee narrowed down selections based on how enjoyable a game is when played for an hour, if the game or needed game system is readily available to libraries, and play-ability in a public setting. 

The first round of voting will remain open until May 31, 2024. The ballot can be found at Games will then move on to play-testing and deliberation by GameRT Award Committee members.
