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 boardgames 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.

Kits include:
5 finished wooden plaques 5x3.5x.125"
20 white acrylic circle tokens 1.25"
5 yellow acrylic circle tokens with lion face 1.5"
1 token tin with lid 3.5x2.5x2"
2 square aluminum containers 1.25x1.25x3"
1 cardstock sheet 24x18"
