Whose Turn Is It, Anyway? Online Board Gaming and Libraries
This webinar will explore platforms for online board gaming, how to moderate meetups, and facilitate discussions among participants.
Closed buildings and social distancing doesn’t need to mean the end of engaging and fun board game groups hosted by libraries. Many libraries have worked hard to organize board game groups, while others are still considering how to get started. Using popular and free online board gaming platforms (Board Game Arena, Yucata, Tabletopia, Tabletop Simulator, and Boitejeux), communities of gamers can continue meeting safely online. This webinar will explore how to make the transition to online board gaming, moderate meetups, and facilitate discussions among participants. The session will be applicable to those looking to move online and anyone interested in starting their first gaming group.
Presented by: John Pappas, Head Librarian, Elkins Park Free Public Library, Cheltenham Township Library System (PA), and author of the Board in the Library series on WebJunction; and Bebo, author, photographer, video producer and founder of Be Bold Games
