Check out this kickstarter. It's good.
 
Here’s a thing I helped make, and it’s on Kickstarter!! 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ironmaus/bring-your-own-book-the-game-of-borrowed-phrases?ref=nav_search

It’s called Bring Your Own Book. It’s a card game about books and borrowed phrases. If you like books and games like Apples To Apples or Balderdash, you’ll like this game. 

It’s pretty simple. Four or more people play to win by matching phrases found in books to the cards they’re trying to win. 

We’d love your support, but what we really need is your help making noise. Please tell everyone you know especially if they love books!

Thanks!
Luke

Did King.com, makers of "Candy Crush Saga," copy our game before becoming trademark trolls themselves? You decide.

The company I work for sent us as a team building thing and it was great! The Battlepods are a bit dated, but it doesn't matter - as long as you have a group to play with it's super fun. There's probably 35(?) or so arcade machines around to play, too, and the guys that run it are pretty chilled out & helpful. Thumbs up, had a good time.
