November 15th was International Games in Libraries day, so a few members of the Northwest Indiana Boardgamers Association converged on the Hebron Public Library in Hebron, IN to play some games. Here's what got played.

Greg kicked off the event by teaching Zombie Dice to a brother and sister who came to the event. The girl was 9, the boy was older (11 or 12 probably).

I played this with SarahEllen, my wife who also happens to be the youth services librarian at Hebron. It was her first time playing the game, and I ended up with the win. The library copy was donated as part if International Games Day a couple of years ago.

Greg taught this to Allison and Jeff, and I think they both beat him. I think the library's copy was donated by Fantasy Flight.

This was a game NorthStar donated to the library, and it always seems pretty popular at these events. Greg, Allison, Jeff and I played to 5, and Jeff got the win.

An aunt and her niece came in to the program, and were trying out a few games like Tapple, but weren't really playing with them. I pulled out my copy of Rumis and taught the game. We had fun with it, though I was a little lax with some of the rules.

A group of four sisters came in (all ages seven and under). SarahEllen tried to teach this to them, but their attention span was very low, and they all left midgame.

The girls came back in later, and seemed interested in Tapple. I tried to teach it to them, but they were more interested in pressing all the buttons. They only hung around for two minutes before leaving again.

Greg taught this game to Allison and Jeff, and they played a three-player game. I got in on a second game with them, and tied with Jeff. Greg suggested we arm wrestle to determine the winner, but Jeff wasn't very interested in that. Both kids really enjoyed the game, and did very well in their final scores.

Greg and Grant then taught Splendor to Jeff, and they played a couple of games. I think Grant won both of them.

SarahEllen came in while everyone else was occupied in other games, and entertained herself with a solo run of Rodeo Rummy, which the library got last year. She enjoyed it.

After Splendor, it was just Greg, Grant, and me. I had convinced Greg to bring his copy of Mice and Mystics, so we pulled it out and ran through the first chapter (it was Grant's first try at the game). We won pretty handily. I got the Cheesemaster achievement, and Grant was trying really hard for the Roachmaster.

A mother and daughter came in to the program and pulled out this game for its fourth play of the day. They already knew the game.

Greg, Grant, and I played Smash Up with the Awesome Level 9000 expansion (both donated by AEG). I had the Zombie Bears, Grant had Ghost Ninjas, and Greg won with Steampunk Dinosaurs.

Greg had to leave, so Grant and I closed out the day with Sellswords, which I got from Level 99 for review. It was the first play for both of us. I ended up winning 33-11.
