Every year on April 23, World Book Day is celebrated to encourage reading and literature in all its different shapes and forms. To commemorate the day, we've put together a list of 6 literature-themed games you can play on Tabletopia right now!
The Illiterati are an evil secret organization that has taken over the world. Your job as a member of the League of Librarians is to save the world's books — one word at a time.
Illiterati is a real-time, co-operative word game in which players work together to form words and bind (complete) books. Each round, you'll have 3 minutes to work as you balance two different objectives. On the one hand, your goal is to bind books so that you can win the game. On the other hand, if you have too many unused letters when time runs out, everyone loses.
You are a paperback author trying to finish novels for your editor. Complete Westerns, Science Fiction, Romance or even the rare Best-Seller. Live the dream — and maybe pay the bills.
Word-building meets deck-building in the unique game Paperback. Players start with a deck of letter cards and wild cards. Each hand they form words, and purchase more powerful letters based on how well their word scored. Most letters have abilities that activate when they are used in a word, such as drawing more cards or double letter score. Players buy wilds to gain victory points. Variant included for cooperative play.
Our intrepid author Paige Turner is back! In Paperback Adventures, you get to play as the protagonist in one of Paige's wild brainstorming sessions. Conquer a menagerie of pulp novel characters in this solo deckbuilding word game. Just like in the original game Paperback, you will build your own deck of cards throughout the game, and those cards will have letters to help you spell words every turn.
But in Paperback Adventures, instead of testing your wordsmithing wit against other players, you will use your words to defeat a series of AI enemies in "roguelike" fashion.
Age of Comics: The Golden Years is a worker-placement board game in which you play the role of a fictional comic-book publishing company during the golden age of comics (circa 1938-1956).
The objective of the game is to accumulate the highest number of fans, make money by publishing comics and create the best portfolio of comic books.
Bücherwurm, the bookworm is looking for its successor and will test all of you as likely candidates by having you go through a plethora of different categories. In each category, you must find fitting words so that you can match a letter card in your hand. Whoever can get rid of all their letter cards first wins the game and the worthy title of successor!
Bookworm: The Card Game increases the challenge of the original Bücherwurm / Bookworm game because now speed is of the essence, challenging you not only to think along certain lines, but to think quickly. The game now includes bigger and more cards and more categories to provide more variety of play, and it includes a number of play variants.
Fire! The Great Library, the world's most complete archive of knowledge and wisdom is on fire! As books and relics are consumed by the flames, you must make a choice over what to save - some artifacts are more valuable to you than others, and your fellow heroes may have different priorities than you - and some may even be trying to burn books!
In Alexandria, 2-4 players must use a limited supply of time to move through the burning corridors of the Great Library, looking for scrolls, items and even scholars that they can save. Will you use your time wisely to preserve ancient knowledge, or will your opponents get the best of you?
