OPEN GAME PLAY FAQ

Is this only open to Fountaindale cardholders?

This club will be intended for Fountaindale cardholders and residents.

What if I don’t have a Minecraft account?

You will need a Minecraft account in order to play during Open Game Play and to participate in a future Minecraft Club. Permission slips will be needed for the Minecraft Club as well, but not for Open Game Play. Very soon, Minecraft accounts will be available for those with permission slips signed and for purchase.

What if I come and there are no computers available?

Each player will be granted a minimum of one hour of game play assuming they sign in or are on a wait list by 5:00 pm. Those who are interested in waiting may sign up on a wait list by visiting a staff member in the Computer Lab on the 2nd floor.

Will I be able to play the whole time/are there time limits?

Players can continue playing as long as there are no wait lists. Those who are first to play and first to be bumped from a computer may sign back up on a wait list to play as long as no one signs up before/after them who has not already played for the day. No one will get bumped from a computer after 5:15 pm for a new arrival.

Do I have to come at 2:00 pm? Can I leave early?

You may arrive and depart anytime between 2-6 PM. Please note: your Minecraft session will end at 6 PM. Further reservations in the Computer Commons/Lab will require the use of a library card.

Can I bring my own laptop to play?

The Computer Lab will be reserved for those who wish to use library computers. You may, of course, play Minecraft on your laptop elsewhere in the library.
