ALIA is pleased to support International Games Week as a great opportunity for public, school and academic libraries to introduce fun activities and raise awareness of the social and educational benefits of play. Card games, board games, online games - every type of game is covered.

This is the 10th year of International Games Day, and in response to popular demand from around the world, it is expanding to a full week, to enable libraries to participate more easily. Sunday 29 October to Saturday 4 November, with inter-library events like the Global Gossip Game running on Friday 3 November and Saturday 4 November.

Qwirkle is a delightful abstract strategy game where players try to play rows of tiles whose colour or shape match, but where no two tiles in a row perfectly match. It's easy to learn and surprisingly deep. Can you Qwirkle? Two-four players.
