Join us on Sunday, December 9th at 1:00 P.M. for our third Dungeon and Dragons gaming session at the library. Our Role Playing Gaming Group meets on the second Sunday of each month at 1:00 P.M.
Role Playing games (RPGs) encourage storytelling and creativity as players assume character roles in a fictional setting. Most RPGs allow players to personalize their character by selecting their race, class, physical attributes, skills and abilities from descriptions in the gaming manuals for that particular gaming system.
Ages 13-adult or younger if accompanied by a parent.
Get your game face on and enjoy modern board games at the library! This month, we are featuring tower defense games. Bring your favorites to share! This month's featured games are Castle Panic, Munchkin Panic, and Star Trek Panic. Adult Game Night meets monthly on the third Tuesday of the month.
What are tower defense games?
In tower defense games, a player's goal is to defend their territories or possessions by obstructing the enemy attackers, usually achieved by placing defensive structures on or along their path of attack. This typically means building a variety of different structures that serve to automatically block, impede, attack or destroy enemies. Description from BoardGameGeek.

Everyone's favorite family of superheroes is back in "Incredibles 2"--but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life. It's a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again--which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible. Description by Rotten Tomatoes. 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
