Board Games at Newcastle Libraries


Borrow board games from Newcastle Libraries

Our board game lending collection features a large selection of great modern board games. Check out the collection on level 3 in City Library, or check out our smaller collections at Fenham, Kenton, High Heaton and Gosforth Libraries.

With over 300 modern board games, there is something for everyone. If you're just starting on your board game journey, there are some great family games. Dobble and Jungle Speed are classics, but for younger gamers you can find popular titles like Animal upon Animal, Bandido and a large selection of HABA games.

Modern classics like Catan, Citadels and Ticket to Ride offer a great introduction to the modern board gaming hobby, but you can also check out some of today's most popular titles: Azul, Wingspan and Kingdomino have all been huge break-out successes in recent years. And if you're looking for something big and challenging, you can borrow and try games like Root, Scythe or Terra Mystica.
