Games at Jervis Library

Unplug & Play Resumes Indoors

The library's Unplug & Play tabletop game nights are resuming indoor play! As in the past, we'll meet in the auditorium; however, due to ongoing concerns about the SARS-CoV2 virus, precautions will be taken to limit the chance of transmission (precautions are listed under Upcoming Events).

The circulating game collection is now a robust collection of 110+ games and growing, split between two collections:

  • Family Games (appropriate for ages 7 and younger) in the Children's Room

  • All Other Games next to the stairs by the Information Desk

  • All persons in the library must, at all times, wear a CDC-approved mask over their mouth and nose while in the building

Draftosaurus

(game description from boardgamegeek.com)

Your goal in Draftosaurus is to have the dino park most likely to attract visitors. To do so, you have to draft dino meeples and place them in pens that have some placement restrictions. Each turn, one of the players rolls a die and this adds a constraint to which pens any other player can add their dinosaur.

Draftosaurus is a quick and light drafting game in which you don't have a hand of cards that you pass around (after selecting one), but a bunch of dino meeples in the palm of your hand.

Draftosaurus is part of the Circulating Game Collection and will be available in the Children's Room for check out starting in July.

Spotlight Games are displayed in the Unplug & Play display case, next to the Circulating Games collection, near the Information Desk. Look for a new game every month!
