A team of four librarians and staff drew upon previous experience with game-based learning to develop an orientation activity for transfer students. "Apples to Apples"-style cards were created using a free online card generator. The game exposed transfer students to information about the campus library system in a low-key way that allowed players with different knowledge levels to socialize and compete against one another on an equal basis.
