OK, I’ve had a full day. The Institute was jam-packed, as I just wrote in my blog, and then so too was the gaming night. (Although it was a different kind of jam-packedness.)
Game Crazy brought an amazing number of games and amount of equipment for those attending the gaming night to play. There were large monitors for playing games like Guitar Hero, Dance Dance Revolution, Karaoke, Madden Football, Congo Bongo, and more. Upper Deck brought trading card games. People were playing, singing, dancing, fighting, laughing, and more. It was really amazing. At one point you could hear librarians singing Material Girl – what a sight!
Game Crazy and Upper Deck were incredibly generous. Not only did they bring games to play and staff to help in the play, they also brought an array of giveaways including tote bags, t-shirts, wrist bands, backpacks, and more.
Alliance Games was also able to give us several role playing games to give away. While not everyone won a prize in our raffles, everyone did go home with lots of “parting gifts” from our sponsors.
I know of a few librarians who are addicted to DDR and others who are ready to duke it out with John Madden football.
By the way, 90 people signed-up for the gaming night. That’s incredible. To those of you who participated – what was your favorite game? Why?
