Quarto.jpg

In Games in Schools and Libraries #102 Nate Scheidler of Gigamic World joins Donald Dennis to talk about how and why Gigamic is reaching out to schools and libraries in a very direct and personal way. If you like games check the routes listed below to see if he will be near your school or library with a large selection of Giant Gigamic Games. 

Marrakech.jpg

Nate’s current theoretical route starting approximately end of June is:

  • Seattle, WA
  • Spokane, WA
  • A short stop in one or two of Missoula, Bozeman or Billings, MT
  • Fargo, ND
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Green Bay, WI
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Chicago, IL
  • Fort Wayne, IN and various regional locations from 7/10-8/19

Not a lot of wiggle room on this end and he may need to cut a location.

 

Past that time Nate is considering:

  • Cedar Rapids and Quad Cities, IA
  • Southern IL to St Louis, MO
  • Kansas City
  • Tulsa and Oklahoma City, OK
  • San Antonio, TX
  • Denver, CO
  • Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM
  • Phoenix and Tucson, AZ
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Possibly other middle CA stops
  • San Francisco, CA
  • Sacramento, CA
  • Reno, NV
  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • Boise, ID
  • Portland, OR
  • Vancouver, CA

This tour will continue until approximately 10/10/18. Right now the second half of my schedule and route is reasonably open! If you want me to visit your location, tell me all about the cool stuff you’re doing and send some photos or videos!
