International Games Week: Euro Games

International Games Week LogoIn honor of International Games Week, we're going to look at types of board games.  One type a day!  This is by no means a list of every type of game out there.  There are many different types, but we're going to highlight some of the ones that are popular at The Urbana Free Library.  Starting with Euro games!
