Description

Details

An entertaining introduction to children's literature across the ages, Bookworm is a charming and challenging game for all the family. A passage from a children?s classic is read aloud, followed immediately by four questions based on particulars mentioned in that passage. As the young are often so much better than adults at listening carefully and recalling the specific details of a story, Bookworm can be played as equals by players of very different ages. And where a child cannot yet read, players can play in teams. 

 Age 6+ 
 For 3-8 Players

Originally devised by Oxford Games to celebrate the Bodleian Library's acquisition of the Opie Collection of Children's Literature, Bookworm comprises one hundred and twelve cards, each carrying a passage from a different children's classic; an illustrated booklet with background information on each book, and a game board, beautifully decorated with an amusing Edwardian Alphabet.
Retailer Information

Oxford Games Ltd was established in 1991 by Leslie Scott (the inventor of Jenga) and her former partner in design, Sara Finch. The two friends, devised, manufactured and marketed over thirty games together until 1999 when they decided to licence out their entire Oxford Games Collection to the Lagoon Group, which successfully published many of the games for the next ten years.

 Earlier this year, Leslie’s daughter, Frederica Scott Vollrath, herself a published game inventor and award winning designer, joined Oxford Games, eager to build on its past and take the company into the future. Freddie’s first step has been to launch this new Oxford Games website and online store that will be selling the pair’s own games, as well as other games they love to play.

The original Oxford Games Collection included many top selling, perennial favourites, which OG has decided to revive and republish. At present, Anagram and Ex Libris (and a new extension pack, Ex Libris – Addendum) are on the market. Also, new this year (!), we have republished Bookworm – the game of reading and remembering and Flummoxed – the foreign language bluffer’s game.
