Among Us

San Antonio Public Library Online Join us for a few rounds of the hit app-based game, Among Us! The game takes place in a space-themed setting, in which players each take on one of two roles, most being "Crewmates" and a predetermined number being "Impostors". The goal of the Crewmates is to identify the Impostors, eliminate them, and complete tasks around the map. The Impostors' goal is to covertly sabotage and destroy the Crewmates before they complete all of their tasks. Players suspected to be Impostors may be eliminated via a plurality vote, which any player may initiate at any time. Crewmates win if all Impostors are eliminated or all tasks are completed whereas Imposters win if there is an equal number of Impostors and Crewmates, or if a critical sabotage goes unresolved.
