UCI Libraries Game Collection

Tabletop games have moved.  They are still located in the GRR just a few feet past where the cart was on the first row of shelving!

The Science Library now circulates board games! Our collection is comprised of over 40 classic games, eurogames, card games, and more. In this guide, you will find a catalog of the games available at the Science Library, instructional videos on how to play many of our games, featured games, new arrivals, and more.

For a complete list of games in the library you can browse the collection below, or visit the UCI Libraries BoardGameGeek profile.
