This class is free to attend, but registration is required and limited to 20 participants. Ages 16 and up only, please. (We will be using sharp objects!)

Join us for a different make-and-take craft one Saturday each month! Pre-registration is required due to limited supplies. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.


Game Night for Grownups: Splendor

When: Monday, August 14, 2017 - 5:00 PM - 7:45 PM
Where: Anderson Public Library at Cardinal Room

A monthly gaming group at the library for adults only! We meet on the second Monday each month. We will teach the featured game of the month but you are welcome to bring your own games, too! Beginners welcome!

The game this month is SPLENDOR. SPLENDOR is a fast, elegant, and intuitive game in which players compete to build Renaissance Europe's most lucrative and prestigious jewelry business. You begin by collecting raw gems and use those to fund the development of mines throughout the world. Once you've mined more gemstones, you must acquire the means to transport them, artisans to shape them, and finally a storefront where you can sell your polished jewels. If you produce exactly the right jewelry, a powerful Noble may become your patron, but even then they won't just hand you victory: the player whose business earns the most prestige wins. Deceptively easy to learn, SPLENDOR involves quick strategic thinking and produces intense interpersonal competition! (Description from Asmodee.us)
