Thanks to the Simmons MSLA Student Interest Group (SIG) for inviting me to present at their spring conference for a second year in a row! I talked about board gaming as a literacy activity, and tying board games into national standards and local curriculum.
I didn’t have time to cover role-playing games, but there are some links on the handout and in the bookmark file. I bumped into Michael Sullivan in the elevator after my session (Michael was presenting in the same time slot) and he asked me, did you talk about chess? And NO, I forgot! Chess is probably the game played the most, and the longest, in all types of libraries. So, I’ve added some links of use for anyone thinking about starting a chess club, and encouraged Michael to contribute his program to the Librarian’s Guide to Gaming.
