Show off your Pokémon skills at Dursley Library


Pokémon battles, board games, Lego and Pathfinder RPG are just a few exciting games on offer at a 'Play.Thefuture' event on Saturday 21st October 2017.


From families to solo players, there will be opportunities for all ages to join the gaming celebration, with classic and new games. The exciting ‘Beasts of Balance’ is a digital board game hybrid, and ‘Ghostal’ is the spooky award-winning board game from independent games maker Tinkerbot Games.

Pokemon battle tournaments will be staged at 11am and 1pm, including Pokémon Gym Battle challenges. Bring your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon to the library to join the battle.

Younger visitors can create a Dursley a Lego adventure story, or search for hidden artist flip books by Anton Hecht: hunt them out and make your own to take home.

Throughout half term week, the whole of Dursley town centre will be transformed into a real-life game during 21st Oct - 28th October. Players hunt out symbols around the town in a bid to become Dursley’s greatest hero.

To join the quest, players should collect a dice and map from Dursley Library. Local shops and organisations are all taking part in this wonderfully designed game by young Dursley game makers Sam Arnold, Richard Harper and Max Robert James.

Cllr Tim Harman, cabinet member for public health and communities said: “It’s always inspiring to see the hard work of library staff and community groups bringing people together in unusual and imaginative ways, especially when residents are offered the opportunity to get hands-on with new technology.

“I hope gamers young and old enjoy this ground breaking event in their local library.”
