Refresh your game and puzzle closet for this Fall! Our next swap is Monday, September 16 from 6:30pm-7:30pm at Ballard Public Library Community Room. Please make sure all of the pieces are included in the games and puzzles you bring to swap.
We’re also looking for volunteers to join the Board Game and Puzzle Swap team! The events happen 3-4 times a year, and duties might include planning, outreach, setup, checking in attendees, clean-up, and keeping the games at the tool library in good order. If you’re interested, please contact Shanon.
What to bring:
Kid, family, or adult board games, card games, or puzzles that you no longer want and cash for a donation (optional). Games and puzzles should be in good shape, and all pieces should be included. You can exchange up to five games / puzzles. Feel free to bring extra, however. Anything not claimed in the exchange will live at the Ballard Tool Library and be available in the “Little Free Game & Puzzle Library.”
How does it work?
6:30 – 6:45: Arrive with your games and puzzles and check in. You’ll receive a token for each game or puzzle you bring (up to five). Take a look at what’s available, get to know other neighborhood gamers, and enjoy snacks.
6: 45 – 7: 15: Beginning at 6:45, we’ll randomly pull tokens. If you have a token that matches, select a game from what’s available.
7:15 – 7:30: Take your pick of any games and puzzles left over.
*All games and puzzles not chosen will be available at the Ballard Tool Library.
