Adult Game Night – Hand Management Games

Tuesday, February 20 at 6:00 P.M.

Put your game face on and head over to the Ripon Public Library on Tuesday, February 20 at 6:00 P.M. for some kids-free, adult gaming! This month we will focus on games that have a prominent hand management game mechanic. Our feature game will beLibertalia, but we will also have copies of PandemicCastle Panic7 Wonders, and Ticket to Ride available for participants to explore. What are hand management games? As Board Game Geek describes it, “Managing your hand means gaining the most value out of available cards under given circumstances. Cards often have multiple uses in the game, further obfuscating an ‘optimal’ sequence.”  For a game description, instructions and a video tutorial for our feature game, Libertalia, please visit our website at https://www.riponlibrary.org/HandManagementGames.Did we miss a hand management game you enjoy? Bring your favorites to share! Adult Game Night meets the third Tuesday of every month at 6:00 P.M.
