EVERYONE PLAYS

Brief Overview

Everyone Plays! is the volunteer base of Spielbound and is dedicated to engaging the whole Omaha community by making games easily accessible for all. The primary focus is Spielbound's daily game demo in the library where friendly volunteers teach a different game each day. Demos are free - no day pass needed! - and open to the public. Volunteers in Everyone Plays! also assist Spielbound's other non-profit arms and work with additional non-profits in the community to bring games to as many people as possible.

Goals

  • Make games fun and accessible to everyone though daily game demos and community outreach.
  • Support Spielbound's non-profit efforts by supplying volunteers wherever needed.
  • Build connections with the community through outreach events.
  • Spread knowledge of Spielbound's mission by participating in events for non-profits
