International Games Month is back!
It’s that time of year again when, between Halloween and the anticipation of Christmas, libraries all over the world celebrate International Games Month!
This initiative, which arrived in the UK from the other side of the Atlantic, more than ten years ago, has been celebrated among public, academic, health, school, and specialist libraries.
Today libraries are using games to engage, entertain and educate their users across sectors. So we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to promote games, play, libraries and learning altogether.
To do that, we have brought back some of the most popular initiatives to engage you. Furthermore, there is a chance to win some Amazon vouchers, whether you want to participate on a paper version or are a distance learner.
You’ll find links to all our activities (and Terms & Conditions for the games) here: https://libcal.napier.ac.uk/
Win an Amazon voucher!
As in previous years, we’re giving students multiple opportunities to win an Amazon voucher!
Play online, send your completed puzzle/quiz from your university email address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘International Games Month’. Correct entries will be entered into the draw to win a voucher.
Again, we encourage you to give a go to the 2023 edition of our Plot Keywords Quiz! Use the keywords provided to work out the title of the book which has been made into a film! Click on the link https://libcal.napier.ac.uk/ to access the quiz sheet.
Paper copies of the Word Search and our Plot Keywords Quiz are available at each campus library if you prefer to hand in a paper copy.
Additional Games for you to play for fun!
A great way to brain-train yourself and get a break after studying and focusing on assignments is to take your mind off the books and enjoy our additional games to play. You will find them with the rest of the resources.
And finally, if you want to find more useful resources on the importance of gaming, video games and effective fun learning, please check our updated Reading List.
