PTA Support – Fundraisers, Game Nights & More

We're are proud to partner with local Parent-Teacher Associations (PTAs) to help plan and run events such as fundraisers, family game nights, and childcare during PTA meetings.

Donations, Teacher Wishlists & Charitable Giving

We regularly donate to DC-area teachers to help them fill their classrooms with great games. If you'd like to contribute to the fund to help us reach more teachers, more classrooms, and more students, you can drop by or reach out to us! We appreciate your support of our community!

Local Designers – Playtesting & Promotion

Labyrinth Games & Puzzles actively encourages and supports local board game and puzzle makers. Whether it's in-store playtesting or stocking locally-made games, Labyrinth supports the DC area's large and talented game community. Designers and publishers, please feel free to reach out anytime. Contact us to find out how we might help you!

Lending Library – Borrow Games & Learn to Play

Labyrinth Games & Puzzles has also worked with local schools to establish lending libraries of board and card games, and provide special training to teachers on the use of games in a classroom setting. We work to match our games to the core curriculum goals of a school and help them learn how to incorporate games into education.

Aftercare Enrichment Program – The Labyrinth Game Club

Held in local elementary schools, Labyrinth Game Club focuses on teaching children essential social and cognitive skills through non-electronic games. Instructors from Labyrinth Games & Puzzles – DC's premiere store for brainy fun – teach new games each week, building a portfolio of skills from class to class. Labyrinth’s teachers encourage reflection on board-game strategies, which has been shown in studies to enhance learning from game play. Students in first grade and up may also have the opportunity to design their own games after exploring a variety of play styles. 

Current Partnering Schools: Maury Elementary School; Brent Elementary School; Capitol Hill Day School; Tyler Elementary School; Peabody Early Childhood Center; Watkins Elementary; SWS; and Two Rivers Public Charter School.
