International Games Day and the end of the semester 2 study period, the Library hosted a games day event in our library spaces.
Townsville had a range of board games with modern favourites like Monopoly,
Connect4 and Trivial Pursuit being opened immediately. Townsville JCU Board
Gaming group also brought along some games and what appeared, to this noob,
to be a version of Dungeons & Dragons. An old-school Nintendo gaming
console for Mario Bros was set up and got a work out. Peter Hanley brought in a
selection of handmade traditional games which would have made archaeology and anthropology students cry with joy, as the selection ranged
Men's Morris (similar copies have been found engraved on ancient Roman
sites) to Mancala.
At one point 70 students crammed into the iLearning rooms (especially
once word got around that food and drink was supplied). Check out the photo album on Facebook.
