International Games Week 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. This year, International Games Week is October 29th – November 4th, 2017, and the Games Research Network have teamed up with Manchester Metropolitan University Library to help contribute.

For International Games Week, we are absolutely delighted to be partnering with the University’s All Saint’s Library for a day of gaming goodness on 31st October. Given that it is also Halloween, participants will be able to take part in a wide range of spooktacular (sorry) games, ranging from Cthulhu Fluxx to Betrayal at House on the Hill.

You can find out more about what we are doing by reading the full blog, as it appears on the American Library Association Games and Gaming Roundtable website.
