A wide variety of board games, card games, and video games for all ages will be free to play on a first-come, first-served basis. Examples of games that will be available to play include classic favorites such as Candyland, Chutes & Ladders, Monopoly, Scrabble, Chess, and Checkers; new standards such as Settlers of Catan, Forbidden Island, Apples to Apples, and Pandemic; and various video games for consoles such as Xbox One.
