I just came across an advertisement for this, and it looks to be right up my alley (as they say). Those of us who love to read may find it irresistible, though I have only seen this ad so I can’t vouch for the quality or how well the game plays.
Here’s the text of the listing on the game company’s website, the address of which is at bottom: The price on the company website is $39.95.
It Was a Dark and Stormy Night
– the game for people who love to read
You and your friends will have fun—and some great conversation—testing your book smarts. Just listen to the opening line or two from a book and identify its title or author. It’s that easy…and that challenging!
“ This is an extremely intelligent board game for adults who love to read.” — The Michigan City Beacher
It Was a Dark and Stormy Night covers everything from novels to poetry, from mysteries to children’s books, from science fiction to books made into movies, and six other categories. You’ll know more than you think, and you’ll get introduced to some great new reads along the way!
“ I tested this game with two groups of players…
We needn’t have been so worried that the game would be too difficult for a group of mostly casual readers. It was a close match…I give the game my recommendation – it was a lot of fun for both test groups.” — The Chicago Sun Times
Whether you loved Pride and Prejudice or not, you and your friends will have fun revisiting the world of the classic—and not-so-classic—books that you first met in school, at the library, or on the beach. (Say, wasn’t that the title of a book…?)
