New Literary Board Game hits Shelves
Booktastic! is about more than literary trivia. The game came about through creator Laine Keneller's love of books and collecting. "The object of Booktastic! is to amass the most valuable collection of books and cash by buying and selling books at bookstores, swap meets and book exchanges," reports the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Players make their way through several bookstores buying or trading the ten books on the game card for noteworthy books of a specific year. In order to earn money to play the game, players must answer questions about collecting, authors and writers or specific books. The game is in it's second edition and planning a third, with foreign versions in the works.
