The fist edition of BOOKCHASE® was launched at the Hay International Literary Festival in 2007, to rave reviews. Bookchase is the perfect game for anyone who has ever read a book. The game can be played with questions or without – fast or slow. Ever dropped a book in the bath, or lent a book to someone and never got it back?? 2-6 players aged 6 and upwards – the perfect family boardgame. First to collect, beg, borrow or steal 6 books is the winner. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GAME IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO CANADA OR USA – THANKYOU
Sometimes, you really do just want to buy the book for its cover. I gaze longingly at these every time I go into a bookstore, even though I own many of them already.
The yummy covers are the work of Coralie Bickford-Smith.
