Tabletop Game Night: Learn to Play Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride!

Carcassonne-game Ticket_to_Ride_Board_Game_Box_EN

This month at Tabletop Game Night, you can learn how to play two fun, easy-to-learn, award-winning games: Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride.

Carcassonne is a tile-placement game where players score points by building cities, roads, grasslands, and cloisters, and placing people there as knights, robbers, monks, or farmers. Although there are many possibilities for how to build up the countryside, the game keeps moving quickly.

Ticket to Ride is an easy-to-learn game where players earn points by connecting cities through railway routes. Players have to balance building their routes and cutting off their opponents to be the most efficient and effective railroad builder. It takes just minutes to learn and is a lot of fun to play!

If you want to get a sneak peek of how the game works, both of these games have been featured on the popular online board game show TableTop, featuring actor Wil Wheaton.

Tabletop Game Night is Thursday, July 23, 6-8 p.m. in the Close Community Room. Other board games will also be available to play, or bring your favorite game.

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
