National Gaming Day @ the Ligonier Valley Library

Looking for a place to hang out and have fun with your friends or family? On Saturday, November 13, hundreds of libraries across the country will showcase gaming programs and services in support of National Gaming Day @ Your Library. The Ligonier Valley Library has joined forces with Norm and Robbie Flam of the Toy Soldier Gallery to present a full day of table top strategy games and classes at the library.

National Gaming Day provides the perfect opportunity for beginners and inexperienced players to learn about the games and test their skills against opponents with similar expertise. Participants compete against each other using armies of miniature scale figurines. The rules of each game describe how to move the miniatures around the game surface to simulate combat.

Games will include Flames of War™, a World War II miniatures game, and Warhammer 40,000™, a futuristic science fiction game. A painting class will instruct players on the proper techniques used to paint the miniature scale figurines used in the games.

All miniatures needed for the games will be provided during the event. There is no charge to play the games, but a small materials fee will be charged for the painting class. Participants must register by calling Norm Flam at the Toy Soldier Gallery (724-238-0324).
