International Game Day – Peabody Public Library
We had a wonderful group of players at our second (my third) International Game Day, sponsored by the American Library Association.
We did have a few hurdles to deal with. The biggest one was a scheduling glitch that ended up restricting us to a much smaller room than we had originally planned for. As such, we only had one video game system up, and only 6 tables for gaming. We made it work.
The library already hosts a weekly open gaming event that we call “Non-Boring Board Games”, so many of the attendees were some of our regulars. However, we had several new visitors, as well as a lot of younger faces than normally attend.
Some of the games played were Magic: the Gathering, Gloom, Lord of Waterdeep, Nexus Ops, Battlestar Galactica, Yahtzee, Libertalia, Dungeons and Dragons, Carcassonne and Quarriors.
Our grand total of attendees was 27 people, we gave away 7 door prizes, and much fun was had by all.
