Game and Puzzle Swap

Clean out your game closet, get something new to play or assemble, and mingle with other gamers in the neighborhood!

Once each quarter, we host a Game and Puzzle Swap at the Ballard Public Library community room.

Due to current social distancing guidelines, we are canceling the next Board Game and Puzzle Swap (May 28). We will reschedule as soon as we’re able and post details here!

When we start up again, here’s how it works —

What to bring:
Kid, family, or adult board games, card games, or puzzles that you no longer want and a snack to share (optional). Games and puzzles should be in good shape, and all pieces should be included. You can exchange up to five games and/or puzzles. Feel free to bring extra. Anything not claimed in the exchange will live at the Ballard Tool Library and be available for check out!

How it works:
6:30 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.: 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.

6:50 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.: Beginning at 6:50 p.m. we will randomly pull tokens. If you have a token that matches, select a game from what’s available. All games and puzzles not chosen will be donated to the new Ballard Tool Library and available for check out.
