The Hobbit: The Game
Thursday, March 7, 4 – 5 p.m.
Saddle your pony and sharpen your battleaxe — it’s time for tabletop adventure! Armed with imaginations as large as Middle Earth, participants will play the parts of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield or one of the dozen dwarves in pencil-and-paper role play action. Reenact the journeys of Bilbo and company, or go ‘off-map’ entirely and blaze your own trail. Add in Bombur-sized snacks and you have all the ingredients for a tale that the bards will tell for an Age. Just remember to steer clear of cobwebs, and if a troll asks you to stay for lunch, say “no!” Grades 4-6 with a caregiver in the building. Registration required. Sponsored by the Coyle Family Young Readers Fund.
