Make & Play Games on November 19

make-and-play1Join us Saturday, November 19 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm at Raleigh Park Elementary for Make & Play, a fun game design workshop.

Participants will be given a brief introduction to game design and a handful of game pieces and then encouraged to create an original game from scratch. Game designers and publishers from the local design group Game Lab will be on hand to help brainstorm, playtest, and answer questions about board game design. By the end of the program, you will have a game prototype that you can take home with you to refine and play. Everyone will be able to take home an original game of their own making!

We will also have tables reserved in the library for playing board games 10:00am-3:30pm as part of International Games Day. Choose a title from our large lending library of board games or bring your own.

Door prizes will also be awarded at the Make & Play event and during open gaming at the library!
