To beat your opponents to the job of Village Librarian in Ex Libris, you need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so you need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up.
In a few days, the Mayor’s Official Inspector will come to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books properly shelved, and she will grade your library on several criteria including shelf stability, alphabetical order, and variety. And don’t think she’ll turn a blind eye to types of books the Council has banned!
Allow an hour to play, for 1-4 players ages 10 and up.
