International Games Day at your Local Library 2014 (Nov-15)

Postby MooseHead » Tue Oct 07, 2014 9:04 pm

Melbourne / Victoria Location Summary:
Note: This list will be updated as more locations are known.
Please add details of your event as comments and this header will be updated.
* = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * = * =
Start your planning everyone. Set aside the 3rd Saturday in November:

November 15th, 2014 is International Games Day at your local library

Info at: http://igd.ala.org/about/

Speak with your local library about how you might help them coordinate and run Australia's 4th annual participation in this worldwide event.

In the words of Phil Minchin, Australia's champion of IGD, "First celebrated in Australia at the State Library of Victoria in 2011, International Games Day @ your library began 6 years ago as a "National" initiative of the American Library Association. Volunteer library-lovers globally took it up, and it is now a genuinely international day."

This is your chance to help grow the activity we all love.

Locations shown with * above were not registered on igd website as of 08-Nov-14.
Library staff need to make this listing for visibility from the igd website.

Euro Games Fest Melbourne has now confirmed participation for International Games Day at your local Library and will convene in conjunction with the Mt. Waverley library. We will have the upstairs function room all to ourselves in a food friendly environment at no charge. Holds about 30-40 people comfortably. 10am till 3pm.

Mt. Waverley Public Library is adjacent to Wadham House, the location of our twice monthly gatherings on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month. By us working closing with the library next door, it means two days of gaming awesomeness in a blockbuster month for gaming that November 2014 will be.

On that day, we will showcase gateway games inclusive of fillers with no game over 90 mins in play length. To make it happen, we need some volunteers who are prepared to teach others as opposed to necessarily play the games.

Games we intend to showcase include:

Over and above our usual channels of FaceBook, Meetup, MelbourneGamers and BGG, the event will be publicised locally via the library and city of Monash community feeds inclusive of display cases at two of their libraries. There is possibility this will also occur at the Glen Waverley library though would be managed by a different group which is currently under discussion.

How you can help is if you wish to take a leading role in this community engagement, and we need 4 or 5 leaders to help with the teaching, please send me a PM. If you can think of other gateway games which have high availability, we are open to suggestion of those and would welcome you to be available to help teach.

Note: Still need base game copies of Dominion and King of Tokyo for loan on the day.
