Adult Game Night - Featuring "Elder Sign"

About Elder Sign, a dice game based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft:

It is 1926, and the museum’s exotic curios and occult artifacts open barriers between our world and the elder evils lurking between dimensions. Other Worlds begin to leak through and terrifying creatures of increasing strength steal through them. Animals, the mad, and those of susceptible minds are driven to desperation by the supernatural forces that the portals unleash. In the midst of this chaos, a handful of investigators race against time to locate the eldritch symbols necessary to seal the portals forever and stop evil Ancient Ones from reducing humanity to cinders.

Elder Sign is a fast-paced, cooperative dice game of supernatural intrigue for one to eight players by Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson, the designers of Arkham Horror. Players take the roles of investigators racing against time to stave off the imminent return of the Ancient Ones. Armed with cards for tools, allies, and occult knowledge, investigators must put their sanity and stamina to the test as they adventure to locate Elder Signs, the eldritch symbols used to seal away the Ancient Ones and win the game.

Adult Game Night - Featuring "Castle Panic"

Tues. January 19th @ 6 P.M.

Castle Panic is a cooperative tower defense board game for 1 to 6 players. The co-op element makes Castle Panic a great family game, and the perfect kick-off for your weekly game night.

You must work together to defend your Castle, in the center of the board, from Monsters that attack out of the forest, at the edges of the board. Trade cards, hit and slay Monsters, and plan strategies together to keep your Castle towers intact. The players either win or lose together, but only the player with the most victory points is declared the Master Slayer. Players must balance the survival of the group with their own desire to win.

Rescheduled for THURS. JAN 21st!! Pinterest Adult Crafting Hour - Monotype Printmaking

Thursday, January 21st @ 6 P.M.

Adult Crafting Hour - Monotype Printmaking

The third Thursday of the month, at 6 P.M., is dedicated to an adults-only craft time with projects inspired by the online idea-treasure trove known as Pinterest.

This month, learn how to form a permanent gelatin printing plate at home during a short tutorial and then experiment with printmaking techniques on the library’s premade printing plates. Beautiful multilayered monotypes can be created using this simple process that is ideal for mixed media art projects. This month’s event could not be made possible without the generous co-sponsorship of Security Finance of Ripon and the Friends of the Ripon Public Library.
