HATCH: How to Set Up a Virtual Game Night *Zoom*

Friday, November 13, 2020

In honor of International Games Week, we will introduce you to several platforms that enable you to play games with your friends and family online. There are a LOT of options so we will limit our focus to board and party games. We will talk about the pros and cons of several popular options that are free or come with a small fee: Steam, Tabletopia, Roll20, Scribbl, Jackbox Games, and board games that translate well to Zoom or other video formats. Pick up your free "Make a Game" kit! Get creative and design a board game to play with friends and family. Numbers are limited, please email the Hatch Coordinator with the subject line "Game Kit" to reserve yours, ehelfer@watertown-ma.gov. Limit two per household. A detailed kit description can be found in the Zoom registration link. You can learn more about the American Library Association's International Games Week here: https://games.ala.org/international-games-week/

Registration for this online demonstration is through Zoom. An email address is required. You will be able to interact and participate in real-time. To use Zoom, you must download the Zoom app, which you can do here: https://zoom.us/download
