Play to Win Draw

Game publishers are providing copies of some of their popular titles for our attendees to check out of the Boardgame Library like any other game in our library, except when they finish playing everyone who has played in the game gets to fill out a ballot. So does the game teacher if they didn’t play in the game. On Sunday, we’ll run a draw for each game and the winner takes home that copy of the game!

It’s a great opportunity to try new games, and maybe take one home!
