Think you can guess the Library’s most popular game?

This March & April, we’ve got a new challenge to see which game is the champion of the NYU Game Center’s Open Library.

Games will be paired up in head-to-head match-ups, and the game with the most check-outs/plays for the week moves on to the next round.

Complete your own bracket to see if you can correctly guess the winners of each round and the champion game! The first place winner will get a prize.
