"I contain both old and new. I start with 'in the beginning.... '" Have you got it yet? If the name of this classic book jumps to mind with just these two clues, you're ready to play Amazon.com Bookology. The object is to be the first player to fill your personal library with books from... you guessed it... Amazon.com, by collecting seven Book Cards that are earned by answering questions like the one above.
Players move around the board answering questions about books in various categories (e.g., classics, children's, nonfiction). Cards on the corner spaces--Novel Bits, Silver Screen, Poet's Corner, and Writer's Block--test general literary knowledge by asking players to fill in blanks in poems, "fix" intentionally incorrect phrases ("An ounce of fertilizer is worth a pound of manure."), or answer movie or book trivia questions. Every correct answer earns another Book Card. To even out the playing field, players can opt to choose Novice, Avid, or Expert levels before the game begins, or, alternatively, agree as a group on which level all will play.
Amazon.com developed Bookology in partnership with University Games. It's a game for anyone who loves books. So, whether you're a well-read board game player or a bookworm who loves to play games, Bookology is sure to keep you both challenged and entertained. (For two or more players; ages 12 and older) --Rachel Radway
