"Science Lab Peril" Cooperative Role-playing Game Begins At Paynesville Library June 2!
This summer, kids can play "Science Lab Peril!" at the Paynesville Public Library. This is a cooperative game which pits the brave and clever Paynesville Summer Reading Program participants and Doctor Luminous Brightbulb, and his laboratory (Brightbulb Innovations), against the treacherous Professor Oddball and his lab, Oddball, Inc.
Oddball, Inc. will stop at nothing to rob us all of good times and good fun.
Participants draw a blue Lab Project Card at each library visit. Points are won and lost based on the library materials players checked out or read, or their ability to find or use library materials or services. The card will give an assignment, and players can earn power points for Brightbulb Innovations. However, if a Lab Catastrophe! card is drawn, things could get tense: Players must then draw a card from the Catastrophe! deck. Oddball, Inc. will get points from those cards unless players can stop them! The first lab to reach the top of their power grid wins! Stop in to the library after June 2, and ask a Library Lab Supervisor (otherwise known as Paynesville Library staff) for information on how to play.
