Board Games for Book Lovers
There are few things I like to do better than play a good game. Rummoli, Texas Hold ‘Em, Charades, Cribbage, Pictionary – you name it, I’ll probably love playing it. And of course it goes without saying that I adore books, so I was happy to find that Flavorwire has a list of 10 Literary Board Games for Book Nerds, with plenty of cool stuff to ogle. A few of the more remarkable ones included a Dune board game, a German Moby Dick board game, a Don Quixote board game, and more.
I wondered what other book-related board games I could find, and whether we had them available on AbeBooks. Here are a few of the gems I discovered:
This is an Alice in Wonderland card game, not a board game, but still wonderful – “The New and Diverting Game of Alice in Wonderland, consisting of forty-eight pictorial cards…” one copy from 1905, one from 1920. Based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
And of course a Game of Thrones board game… which I can only imagine should never be played by children. Ever. And by children, I mean anyone under 25.
Happy reading, happy gaming!
