Pretty Book Games For a Nice Bookshelf
I got the idea for this collection from visiting my brother. He has a shelf of cool classic games, but they look like Really Nice Books on his orderly bookshelf.
Not all haphazard and mismatched with different sized boxes piled up (like my game closet).
Word Games for Bookworms
These bookworm word games would look great on your shelf, and are FUN to play!!
Classic Bookshelf Games
And these bookish games are classic! Who doesn’t love Clue, or Sorry, or Yahtzee? And if you have time, Monopoly and Risk are fun!
Risk is my brother’s favorite game. One of my husband’s, too, honestly. But they never let me play growing up. I think maybe twice I got to play, when they were desperate for someone to play with.
These next few are all new to me, but they look like fun, don’t you think?
And the Classic Game of Life.
If you’re looking for more Non-book Bookish Items, check out this post. I had too much fun, and found over 100 Awesome options!!
Book Games Actually Based on Books:
When someone takes the time to bring books to life, it’s awesome. And These book games look pretty fun:
Book Games for Word Lovers:
These book games look like so much fun! I haven’t played them, but I want to!! It’s possible that I might actually last a whole game of Monopoly if it’s Narnian!!! And building the best library?? Sign me up for your next party of bookworm games, please!
Fun Bookworm Games for Groups
These are all slightly different, but are definitely fun Bookworm games for groups of 2 or more! Playing Boggle with my mom and brothers growing up is one of my favorite memories. My mother-in-law introduced me to Quiddler, and it has a unique twist!
Upwords is something we played as homeschool kids, it gave us our language arts credit for the day!
Word Around is one my mom found recently, and it’s fantastic! that little round card has 3 rings of letters. It gets set in the middle of the table, and everyone tries to find where the words start, and read around the card. It is fast-action, and one of the most fun word games for groups! We took it to a Ladies Retreat, and it was very popular.
And Scattegories. I can’t get anyone to play Scattegories with me anymore. I don’t always win, but I definitely have more fun with it than the others do!!
Bookworm Games for Word Lovers
Bookworms love quality wordsmithery, and building words and stories is just plain fun for us, so as book games go, these look awesome!!
Book Games: Word Games to Play With Friends
Mindtrap is another one no one will play with me anymore. My parents got it for me in middle school, I believe.
Despite the claims of my brothers, I did NOT study the cards, but my mind works the right way for this game. I can usually solve the story puzzles pretty fast. Looking forward to my boys being old enough to play!! (yes, I still have my sets from back then)
Word Games for Groups
I can’t decide. I want them all!!
Tri-words is a lot of fun, and it’s one colorful word game that is especially designed to be played by color-blind individuals as well. There are 3 colors on each tile, but each color has its own line at the bottom, either solid, small dots, or long dots, making it work just as well if you have difficulty with colors. See:
More Fun WORD Games for Groups
These Bible games are “WORD” games on a whole different level. Challenge your friends to Bible word games, or try Bible-Opoly…
