Bookchase, a game January 7, 2008

Filed under: Games — Kim @ 11:33 am

Even though the holiday season is over, the dark cold nights are still here. To pass those chilly winter evenings this game might be fun. This is how it works: “Bookchase is also the world’s first board game about books which comes with your own bookshelf, library card, bookshop, and your own set of tiny books to collect. First one to collect six books and head home wins! Simple really.” You can learn more about the game here (US) and here (UK).

    I wish I had one of these games. Or better: i wish someone would bring out a Dutch version. But then again, who am I going to play against?

    I enjoyed Bookchase and Ex Libris too, but Bibliophile is definitely my favourite literary game. According to the bookshop in Stow on the Wold where I found the game – it has only been available for a few weeks. This game comes as a simple pack of cards. The cards have the opening and closing lines of well-known books printed on them and you have to guess the author or the book’s title to win the card. Great game! Not sure if their website sells it, but the address is .
