Gaming at the Library

On Saturday November 14th, hundreds of libraries all over the country celebrated the Second Annual National Gaming Day. AlphaBound Corporation and North Star Games donated the games LetterJAM!, Wits and Wagers and Say Anything to libraries including our own. To support National Gaming Day on our campus, the Whittemore Library will be permanently lending out these games to the campus community. All you need is your library card to the check out the games from the Circulation Desk. Play at the library or take them home and have fun!

If you like to play with words, try:
LetterJAM! Freestyle Pack
An intriguing, socially entertaining letter game for individual or team play among four people, each with a custom-designed colored letter set containing two alphabets (a to z and a’ to z’) and two wild cards. Details and rules are at http://www.letterjam.com/rules_tips. Every Freestyle Pack owner receives unlimited lifetime use of the WordMatch™ tool for discovery and challenges during play. The compact clear container houses the four colored sets for play of up to four people.

If you like to gamble, try:

Wits and Wagers
Not a trivia buff? It doesn’t matter! Each player writes a guess to a question such as “In what year did the bikini swimsuit makes its first appearance?” or “How many feet wide is an NFL football field?” and places it face-up on the betting mat. Feeling confident? Bet on your guess. Think someone else knows better? Bet on their guess. Strike it big and you’ll be cheering like you just hit the jackpot! (4 –20 players)

Want to know what your friends REALLY think? Try:

Say Anything
Say Anything is a light-hearted game about what you and your friends think. It will get people talking, laughing, and having fun in minutes. Enjoy it with 3 – 8 family members or as a hilarious party game with adults. So dig deep into your heart or just come up with something witty — this is your chance to Say Anything!
