Northeastern University Library's Board Game Collection

The Northeastern University Library collects board games for the curricular study of tabletop games and in support of co-curricular and recreational activities. This circulating collection is expanded yearly to include newly released, critically-acclaimed, or award-winning games, as well as those that illustrate the genre's breadth of format, type, and content.

If you have any questions about the collection please email Regina Pagani (Arts, Humanities, and Experiential Learning Librarian) at or Khyle Hannan (Entrepreneurship Librarian) at
