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.

Games in the Library

Exercise your brain with games and puzzles in the Libraries. All Libraries have boardgames for you to enjoy including Scrabble, Mah-jong, Chess, Yahtzee, Rummikub, Canasta, and many more. Bring a friend or two and enjoy the challenge at a time to suit you. Alternatively, join one of the regular sessions: Woodvale Library, every Monday at 2pm and Joondalup Library, the first Thursday of the month at 10.00am.

Tabletop games

  • Ticket to Ride
