International Games Day @ your library is an initiative of the American Library Association to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.
Official sponsor USAopoly is donating the new fast paced category word game Tapple.
Name It. Tap It. Pass It.
The fast paced category word game that challenges players to think on the fly!
Choose a category card and start the timer on the Tapple wheel. In just 10 seconds, name a word matching the category, press the first letter of that word on the wheel, tap the button to reset the timer, and pass it along. Letters already pressed may not be used again, so the pressure mounts! Can’t think of a word in time, you’re out for the round. The player that collects the most cards wins!
Fun Fact: Tapple is based on the original German word game “Pim Pam Pet”, popular in Europe for almost 100 years.
Please note that only libraries with U.S. postal addresses are eligible for this donation. USAopoly is donating 500 copies of Tapple.

Include the #1 trading card game in the world to your Library's Games Day! The Yu-Gi-Oh!

Official sponsor Heartland Products is donating two games, Square Shooters - Poker Matching with Cards-on-Dice! and Rodeo Rummy - Roll, Spin & Win!, both of which are dice games.
Square Shooters - Poker Matching with Cards-on-Dice! is the First Deck of Cards on Dice! Easy to learn and fun to play, your luck can change with every roll of the dice! Try to match the hand with 3 rolls or less! Watch for "shootout" cards that can bring you more luck. Win the most chips and win the game! When you're done playing the game, the amazing dice can be used to play card games from rummy to poker…it's a game kit, not just one game!
Rodeo Rummy - Roll, Spin & Win! is the newest game featuring the amazing Square Shooters® dice! It’s a fast and fun new spin on the traditional rummy games everyone knows and loves. Take a spin on the two-level spinner to find out which type of rummy hand to roll for. Roll the hand in 3 rolls or less and add up your points – but pay attention to the inner ring on the spinner for an additional bonus or penalty.
Please note that only libraries with U.S. postal addresses are eligible for this donation. Heartland Products is donating 250 copies of each game.
