To search the docks for the giant rat of Sumatra? To walk up Baker Street as the fog is rolling in and hear Holmes cry out, "Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot!"? Now you can! You can enter the opium den beneath the Bar of Gold, but beware, that may be Colonel Sebastian Moran lurking around the corner. You can capture the mystery and excitement of Holmes' London in this challenging and informative game. You, the player, will match your deductive abilities against your opponents and the master sleuth himself, Sherlock Holmes.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In <em><strong>Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective</strong></em>, you are presented with a mystery to solve, and it is then up to you to trace the threads of evidence through the byways and mansions of nineteenth century London. You will interview suspects, search the newspapers for clues, and put together the facts to reach a solution.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Why were two lions murdered in Hyde Park? Who is responsible for the missing paintings from the National Gallery? Who murdered Oswald Mason and why? These are just a few of the cases that will challenge your ingenuity and deductive abilities.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This is not a board game: No dice, no luck, but a challenge to your mental ability.

Then, going around the table, players must either play a card in their hand or back out of the mission. Each card represents either threats to the team (such as mortar shells and weather conditions) or negative personality traits (such as frightened or obsessive). At the end of the round, more cards are added to the draw deck. The game ends only if the players can deplete the draw deck as well as their hands without letting time run out.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">If one threat shows up too many times, the team fails the mission. The team must play their threats correctly in order to gain any progress. However, most of the information in a players hand remains secret throughout the game.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Planning, teamwork, and a little luck are the tools you'll need to win this cooperative game for two to five players.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">More about this game: <a href="http://analoggamestudies.org/2017/01/mechanics-of-trauma-in-the-grizzled/" target="_blank">Can Friendship Be Stronger Than War?

For example, if one player chooses the settle role, each player has the opportunity to settle one of the planets from their hand. The player who has chosen the role, however, gets a bonus that applies only to them. But bonuses may also be acquired through developments, so you must be aware when another player also takes advantage of your choice of role.</p> </div> </article> </div> </td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href="https://ander.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:891164/one?qu=sherlock+holmes+consulting+detective&amp;te=ILS&amp;rt=false%7C%7C%7CTITLE%7C%7C%7CTitle" target="_blank"><img class="left border" src="http://www.and.lib.in.us/clientuploads/blog/adults/New Materials/Games/2.2.17/Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Game.jpg" alt="" width="290" height="246" /></a><br /> <h2 class="sub-heading"><strong><a href="https://ander.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:891164/one?qu=sherlock+holmes+consulting+detective&amp;te=ILS&amp;rt=false%7C%7C%7CTITLE%7C%7C%7CTitle" target="_blank">Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective</a><br /></strong></h2> <p><strong>Ages 13+ | 1-8 players | 60-120 min</strong></p> <div class="expandable-body"> <article class="game-description-body"> <div> <p style="text-align: justify;">Have you ever had the desire to walk the streets of Victorian London with Sherlock Holmes in search of Professor Moriarty? To search the docks for the giant rat of Sumatra? To walk up Baker Street as the fog is rolling in and hear Holmes cry out, "Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot!"? Now you can! You can enter the opium den beneath the Bar of Gold, but beware, that may be Colonel Sebastian Moran lurking around the corner. You can capture the mystery and excitement of Holmes' London in this challenging and informative game. You, the player, will match your deductive abilities against your opponents and the master sleuth himself, Sherlock Holmes.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In <em><strong>Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective</strong></em>, you are presented with a mystery to solve, and it is then up to you to trace the threads of evidence through the byways and mansions of nineteenth century London. You will interview suspects, search the newspapers for clues, and put together the facts to reach a solution.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Why were two lions murdered in Hyde Park? Who is responsible for the missing paintings from the National Gallery? Who murdered Oswald Mason and why? These are just a few of the cases that will challenge your ingenuity and deductive abilities.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This is not a board game: No dice, no luck, but a challenge to your mental ability. The game has been thoroughly researched for Holmesian and Victorian accuracy so as to capture a feeling of that bygone era.</p> </div> </article> </div> </td> </tr> <tr> <td><a href="https://ander.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:891175/one?qu=grizzled&amp;qf=FORMAT%09Format%09OBJECT%093-D+Object&amp;te=ILS&amp;rt=false%7C%7C%7CTITLE%7C%7C%7CTitle" target="_blank"><img class="left border" src="http://www.and.lib.in.us/clientuploads/blog/adults/New Materials/Games/2.2.17/The Grizzled Box.jpg" alt="" width="291" height="291" /></a><br /> <h2 class="sub-heading"><strong><a href="https://ander.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/detailnonmodal/ent:$002f$002fSD_ILS$002f0$002fSD_ILS:891175/one?qu=grizzled&amp;qf=FORMAT%09Format%09OBJECT%093-D+Object&amp;te=ILS&amp;rt=false%7C%7C%7CTITLE%7C%7C%7CTitle" target="_blank">The Grizzled</a><br /></strong></h2> <p><strong>Ages 14+ | 2-5 players | 30 min</strong></p> <div class="expandable-body"> <article class="game-description-body"> <div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em><strong>The Grizzled</strong></em> is a cooperative game about survival in the trenches during the first World War where players win or lose together.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Each round, the current team leader will choose how many cards every player draws. Then, going around the table, players must either play a card in their hand or back out of the mission. Each card represents either threats to the team (such as mortar shells and weather conditions) or negative personality traits (such as frightened or obsessive). At the end of the round, more cards are added to the draw deck. The game ends only if the players can deplete the draw deck as well as their hands without letting time run out.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">If one threat shows up too many times, the team fails the mission. The team must play their threats correctly in order to gain any progress. However, most of the information in a players hand remains secret throughout the game.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Planning, teamwork, and a little luck are the tools you'll need to win this cooperative game for two to five players.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">More about this game: <a href="http://analoggamestudies.org/2017/01/mechanics-of-trauma-in-the-grizzled/" target="_blank">Can Friendship Be Stronger Than War?

The Library Board voted in February to approve a contract with E &amp; B Paving to eliminate the wall between the upper and lower parking lots, removing the height difference and reducing the concrete wall on the upper lot along 12th Street and the alley to the north to six inches. Included in the plans for the redesigned parking area is a single entrance and exit from 12th Street and an electronic sign at the corner of 12th and Main streets. Work is scheduled to be completed by May 22. Library visitors can use the parking lot east of the library across Central Avenue until the construction work is completed. <p style="text-align: justify;"><img align="none" alt="clientuploads/blog/adults/ParkingSign-small.png" class="right" height="213" src="http://www.and.lib.in.us/clientuploads/blog/adults/ParkingSign-small.png" width="257" />The parking lots north of the Main Library on 12th Street will be closed beginning the week of April 7th to begin renovations and improvements.

A one-month Non-Resident card costs only $12.50 and may be purchased at the Main Library or the Lapel Branch Library. Non-Resident cards are also available for an entire year ($150), six months ($75), or three months ($37.50).</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo identification and proof of address are required to obtain a library card. Each family member residing at the same address as the person who purchases a Non-Resident card may be issued an APL card for no additional cost. A current driver&rsquo;s license, state ID card, passport, military ID, school ID, or employment ID with your name and picture are all acceptable forms of photo ID, and address may be proved by presenting a current driver&rsquo;s license, personalized check, voter registration, utility bill dated within the last 60 days, or piece of computer generated mail postmarked within the past 30 days.
