Unplug and Play at the Library

One night a month and the occasional Saturday, we invite you to turn off your TV, cellphone, computer, and video games--unplug!--and join others to play board games at the library. Choose from our collection of 150+ games or bring one from home to share. Light refreshments are provided for program participants.

In Notre Dame, the players take on the roles of the heads of influential families in Paris at the end of the 14th century. In the shadow of the Notre Dame cathedral, the players compete for prosperity and reputation. Each family controls one of the 3–5 boroughs that surround the site of Notre Dame. As head of his family, each player tries, through clever use of his action cards, to advance the power and prestige of his family, but penalties are assessed on those who do not take care of the health of the people who live in their borough. The player with the most prestige at the end is the winner.
