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.

Tabletop games

Tabletop games are specialised games that require strategy and tactics. Games include:

  • Ticket to Ride
  • Pandemic
  • Dead of Winter
  • Star Wars: X-wing

Tabletop games are played on Saturday mornings exclusively at Whitford Library, 9.30am to 12.30pm. Anyone over 16 years is welcome and help is provided.

Chess afternoon

A facilitated weekly session for lovers of chess of all ages or those who wish to learn a little more. Held exclusively at Woodvale Library on Thursday afternoons, 4.00pm to 6.00pm.

Games at any time

Joondalup Libraries have board games to use in the library. Bring a friend or two to enjoy the relaxed and comfortable surroundings at any time to suit yourself.
