International Games WEEK!

So, everybody knows that Halloween is drawing nigh, but what you might not know is that International Games Week is nearly here also!

International games week

In past years you might have participated in International Games Day. Well, a day of games was so much fun that we’ll be playing games all week this year! It starts on Sunday, October 29 and ends on Saturday, November 4. There will be video games, Yu-gi-oh!, an Escape Room, Uno, board games and even an after-hours session of Dungeons & Dragons on Friday, November 3 featuring gaming, snacks, and a live performance by Dan the Bard! Parental permission slips are required for the after-hours program so make sure to register soon and get your paperwork in.

You may notice that there is nothing planned for Tuesday.  That’s because Tuesday is Halloween and we wanted to give y’all a day off to enjoy the holiday. However, if you don’t have Halloween plans and trick-or-treating isn’t your scene, you are more than welcome to hang out in the Vortex to play a board game, create a game-related craft-on-the-go, or check out one of the games in our card game Maker Kit! We have three Yu-gi-oh! Decks, three Magic: the Gathering decks, standard playing cards, and Uno. Just present a library card or school I.D. at the Vortex desk to check out any of our new Maker Kits.

Game on!

Teens grades 6-9, do you like to play Yu-Gi-Oh?

For you Yu-Gi-Oh fans, we have started scheduling a couple of times a month for card play. It’s not for a formal tournament, but it’s a time where you can play with your fellow teens for fun! You need to bring your own cards.

The next time for play is Wednesday, May 9th. It goes from 4:00-5:00pm in The Vortex. Please register for the program by calling us at 630.685.4199 or going online at www.fountaindale.org. This program is for teens in grades 6-9 please.

Other future dates of card play are May 24th and June 14th.

Hope you can join us.
