Description:

Fire in the Library is a press-your-luck game in which players must try their best to rescue books and accumulate knowledge.

The game is played in rounds with a variable turn order in which earlier players have more risk but a higher possible reward. Everyone starts with tools to help mitigate their luck or change the probabilities for their opponents!

Gain more tools when your luck runs out or if you take the safe route and exit the library before things get too risky. Hurry, as the game ends immediately when any one wing of the library completely burns.

Take your chances, be the bravest, and save books in Fire in the Library!

Object of the Game

Fire in the Library is a press-your-luck game about saving books from being burned. Push the odds and channel your courage, earning Knowledge Points and Bravery Points which are needed to win the game. The player with the highest combined point total when the game ends is the winner! …



Solo Variants

The Solo Robot Variant gives the player competition and adds randomness to the burning of the Library. Thus, the end of the game is not completely in your control, much like it is in the multiplayer game.

The Lone Librarian Variant does not use a Robot; it's up to you to save as many books as you can in the given number of turns.

For either Solo Variant, follow the Setup as normal.

In the first round, the player can choose any of the Turn Order Cards. …



Tool Cards

Amulet

The Amulet card may only be played before any Turn Order Cards have been chosen during Step 1. The user of the Amulet randomly draws tokens from the Library Bag equal to the number of Turn Order

Cards in play, and places one on each Turn Order Card in the space the farthest to the left.

Multiple Amulets can be used in the same Round, but no Turn Order Card can be made to go into Fire Spreading. If there are Fire Tokens drawn that cannot be placed, they stay on the Amulet card until the end of the Round. …
