National Gaming Day
Many libraries across the world are celebrating National Gaming Day tomorrow Saturday, Nov. 13th. Check out the link here to see if your local library is having any events. There will be board games and video games galore, including many generously donated copies of the delightful Wits and Wagers thanks to North Star Games.
I gotta say I've got mixed feelings about this event. Now here me out: On the one hand, I'm glad that board games are becoming more mainstream and libraries are realizing how great they are for teaching tools, social interaction, and all-around fun. On the other hand, the more popular hobby gaming gets, the more new games will be designed and released each year. And I barely have time to play all the ones I own. And I can't seem to stop collecting more, no matter hard I try. Oh, sweet agony...
