Adult Game Night - Play Test Utica by local game designer, Ashley Rhines

Tuesday, September 19th

You won't want to miss out on this month's Adult Game Night. We will be play testing, local game designer, Ashley Rhine's newest game called Utica.

About the game:
You are a founding member of the Utica town Council. Your role is to improve your own plantation while managing the advancement of the Township of Utica. Players build farm improvements for their own good production, build Main Street buildings for use by the entire town, and select agenda items in the monthly council meetings to best enhance their success.  Skilled farmers will earn contracts in outside communities to score bonus points to the final game scenario.  Gameplay lasts around 2 hours for 4 to 8 players.

About the Designer:

Book Discussion Group

Join us for the Friends of the Library book discussion group!  October's selection is "These is my Words" by Nancy E. Turner.  Copies of book discussion selections are available to check out at the library while supplies last.

A moving, exciting, and heartfelt American saga inspired by the author's own family memoirs, these words belong to Sarah Prine, a woman of spirit and fire who forges a full and remarkable existence in a harsh, unfamiliar frontier. Scrupulously recording her steps down the path Providence has set her upon—from child to determined young adult to loving mother—she shares the turbulent events, both joyous and tragic, that molded her, and recalls the enduring love with cavalry officer Captain Jack Elliot that gave her strength and purpose.

Rich in authentic everyday details and alive with truly unforgettable characters, These Is My Words brilliantly brings a vanished world to breathtaking life again.

Book Discussion Group

Join us for the Friends of the Library book discussion group!  September's selection is "The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins.  Copies of book discussion selections are available to check out at the library while supplies last.

Stolen from the forehead of a Hindu idol, the dazzling gem known as “The Moonstone” resurfaces at a birthday party in an English country home–with an enigmatic trio of watchful Brahmins hot on its trail. Laced with superstitions, suspicion, humor, and romance, this mystery draws readers into a compelling tale with twists and turns ranging from sleepwalking to experimentation with opium. The suspense and drama is heightened as the narrative passes from one colorful character to the next. Wilkie Collins’ masterpiece is particularly distinguished by the appearance of Sergeant Cuff, a prototype of the English detective hero and the harbinger of a popular tradition of sleuthing.
