National Gaming Day Offical Event text from ALA:
On November 15th, libraries across the country are hosting gaming
days, coordinated by the American Library Association. In fact,
Hasbro is sending a copy of Pictureka on that day, and our hope is
that libraries will document how many players engaged with not only
Pictureka, but also with any game that day.
