Game Jams are events in which participants, on their own or in groups, design a game within a set timescale. The most popular jams can have tens of thousands of participants at hundreds of sites globally. This webinar will show how games jams can be used in libraries, how they can be connected to your existing programming, and how you can encourage participants who have never made a game before to join in using easy game making tools that require no coding skills. The webinar draws from the experience of running games jams connected to the British Library digital collections, and will introduce some options for creating digital games in your library and show you how you can join this year's IGM Game Jam.
