Board Game Night at the Library!

Welcome to ciLiving. >>matt: all right, no one's ever board on board game night. a hot trend for friends and family. your local library can help. i am glad to see twister not on the table here. >>matt: it's already checked out. how many games does your library have? >> the adult games, probably 10-15. we are just starting to grow that collection. the kids games, a lot more. >>matt: why does the library have more games? >> they encourage operation, literacy, number skills were critical thinking skills. all sorts of different skills. >>heather: let's talk about some of these games you brought here. speaking of kids, lost puppies. >> this is one of the cooperative games. this is a game where everyone wins. it's good for anywhere from 2-6 players. the idea is to work together. >>matt: that's fun. this is a game, i was looking for the age. five and up. three of games for younger than that and presumably a little older? >> we got all age ranges. >>matt: is it popular to check out games? i've never taken a game out from the library before. >> yes. in fact, we have very few to choose from when i came up here today. most were checked out. pandemic for the adults were more of a family, older kid type of game. we've got chess. some classics. we might have twister still. >>heather: now that it's getting colder out, my son yesterday was like mom, what are we going to do all day? i was like, read a book. he may not go for lost puppies but i think he may like some of these. >> so this is a breakout room. >>heather: those are so popular right now. >> this is more geared toward our teachers. and so, they go online and they can download the different clues and things like that. then the kids get locked in a room - - not locked, but you know what i mean. this could work from home too. >>matt: i love this too for homeschooled kids. work this is a good time for a party. >> it really is for all ages, for sure. it's meant to encourage operation and google thinking and just having a good time. you've got to solve a problem. >>matt: wanted to ask, what - - [indiscernible] >> these are things teachers ask after the game. just to stimulate conversation. >>matt: how can your group have been more effective? you tell me. these are blank. don't write on the library stuff. everyone in your group, do they have an opportunity to contribute? this is kind of a trend. you have games that are competitive and one-on-one. those are fine. but cooperative work seems to really be finding its way even into rudimentary things. >> yeah, we have a family game night we do on the fourth tuesday of the month. we try to bring out more of these cooperative type games so everyone can play. even if the game doesn't finish in time, everyone still feels they accomplished something. >>matt: i love that idea. let's put up this graphic that talks about things coming up. you have - - systems. there's a memory loss seminar and family reading is november 16. >> we encourage all of our kids to come to the effingham park cafi and watch a juggler. >>matt: right after black friday am always got to get good
