Games for adults

There are many opportunities for adults to play games in the libraries, whether you are looking for a regular day and set time or perhaps a more relaxed and impromptu occasion.


For those who enjoy a challenge, Mah-jong is played twice a month for everyone including beginners, and once a week for the more experienced players. For details on joining these groups, please call the Library enquiries number below.

Game On

Are you a game player? Do you like to exercise your brain? Or are you just happy to meet new people whilst playing Scrabble or Canasta? A variety of games are on offer, so come along and join one of the playing groups or bring a group of people to start a new game.

Game On is held at Joondalup Library, on the first Thursday of each month from 10.00am – 12.00noon
