Friday Night Cardboard is hosted on Bracken Library's lower level on the third Friday of every month when Fall and Spring classes are in session. Board, card, and word games from Educational Technology & Resources' collections will be available to play, including modern board games like Dominion, Ticket to Ride, and (Settlers of) Catan, and family classics like Monopoly, Scrabble, and Uno. Participants are also welcome to bring a game of their own to share. Friday Night Cardboard also features an opportunity for players to learn unfamiliar games. Each month our librarian will choose a game from the University Libraries' collection and teach it to newcomers. Advance registration is not required. Just show up, and bring your friends!
Enter Pirates! Set sail with Pericles, Prince of Tyre, on an action-packed, epic journey. In heroic fashion, Pericles woos a princess, fights a famine, weathers storms and a shipwreck, wins the hand of his wife, loses her at sea, and entrusts his only child to a king and queen. From a riddle to a heartrending reunion, Shakespeare’s tale charts one man’s sweeping voyage from a headstrong youth to a sage, world-weary man, with humor, pathos and passion.
