Participation on all six continents-Three gaming companies helped sponsor the event and donated games to libraries that registered (up to 500?)-Quotes:-Library in New York:"While many adults shared stories about their hardships following Hurricane Sandy, the children were entertained with three hours of playing time. Families all expressed gratitude for diversion from the tough week and commented how the library always seems to come through for the community! One Mom asked if there were any games that would improve her son's math facts in addition and subtraction. I was able to show here two games at our event that focused on this skill, but I also mentioned that games that use two dice work on this skill constantly since you have to add the two dice together. She was surprised to hear that and was very glad she came to the library to play games with her children." -Library in Texas "Our Youth Services Department had a "Play Your Way Around the World" event that included a storyteller kicking things off with tales from around the world. The children then each received a world map and proceeded to ten different stations, each of which had a game from a different country to play. Games included Afghanistan kite making, Mayan ancient basket ball, Japanese card match game, etc. The children had such fun--there was much laughter in our Youth Department!" -Librarian in Oregon”watching younger teens get to know older teens while they were playing Yu-gi-oh! and seeing them help each other learn and understand the game rules was great. And watching older teens share the Wii game controls with younger elementary school players who then began to beat them at their own game."
