International Game Day: Are you a gamer or noob in the photos on JCU Library FaceBook?

To celebrate 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 from Nine 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.
