Do you know when the letter J was added to the Alphabet? Or when Margarine was invented? Test your knowledge of history and your deductive skills with our new chronological card game, Moments in Time | Instantporels. Celebrate an attitude of play with us as we launch this visually stunning chronological card game, illustrated by the treasures in McGIll’s ROAAr collections.

In the past three years, ROAAr has explored the place of Serious Play in the library. Does it belong only in a children’s section, all noise and joy? Perhaps in a quiet crossword puzzle in the local papers? We have found surprising and innovative ways that Play can fit at the library. Hear about one of those and play with us as we launch Moments in Time | Instantporels. Games will be available for purchase, and a free copy will go to the lucky winners of the live game challenge at the launch. 

Note: this will be a Hybrid event and we welcome those in the Montreal area to attend in person. We welcome all to tune in via Zoom. Please indicate on the RSVP form how you will attend.
