Top Ten Literary Games
10 Pillars of the Earth
The hugely popular book by Ken Follett became a hugely popular board game. The best bit - you get to build your own Cathedral. It's amazing what you can do in a board game café!
9 The Name of the Rose
Step into Thirsty Meeples space & time machine to find yourself way, way back in 1327 in a little old Italian Monastery charged with solving a series of most heinous MURDERS! Monk-Meeples anyone?
7 The Fury of Dracula
A fang-tastic game. Yep, we really did write that. Will you take on the role of Bram Stoker's Dracula or join the team of Vampire Hunters to thwart his evil undead plans?
6 Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island
One of our more challenging cooperative games, and a game all the more loved because of that! Can you survive the hunger, the ferocious animals and the weather stranded on your deserted island?
5 Discworld: Ankh Morpork
We have three Discworld board games gracing our shelves. We love The Witches, but a frenzied trip to the alleyways and streets of Ankh-Morpork warms our hearts.
4 The Little Prince: Make Me a Planet
We are going to try to include this game in every top ten list. A faithful and beautiful depiction of children's book Little Prince.
3 Around The World in 80 Days
You too can travel around the world in the footsteps of Jules Vernes, except this game typically takes 50 minutes - which is a relief 'cause we like to go home at midnight.
2 Game of Thrones
The board game captures all the backstabbing, intrigue and betrayal of the books. Just don't get too far ahead, and don't trust anyone.
