Board games at DPL: New games, new page, & more

All aboard! Here is a quick tour of the recent changes to the board game collection and webpage.  

New games

A number of new titles have been added to the collection since it began with more added every month.  By the end of the year the collection will have more than doubled since it launched. In order to help you navigate the growing and changing titles, a new webpage has been created.  

New webpage

On the newly designed board game webpage, all of the board games are located in one of five categories that you can navigate to by clicking on.

The easiest games are youth, followed by family and party games, with thematic and strategy games often being the most complicated.

Each board game is displayed with an image of the box cover art with information below. Here you will find player, time, and age ranges as well as a link to a brief instructional video on how to play the game. You can also check the availability of the game in the library.

Checkout

In case you missed it, board games no longer need to be taken to the media desk prior to checkout.  Simply grab your favorite games and take them to a check out station. Please still return them to the information desk.
