As a big fan of books and literature, I think this card game is absolutely wonderful. The game consists of thirteen sets of cards, four cards in each set. Every set features a certain author - Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, William Shakespeare - with their picture on the cards. Four cards feature four different works of the particular author - books or poems.
The objective of the game is to collect as many complete sets of all four works by the same author as possible. The game can be played by three, four, or five people. In the beginning, all the cards are shuffled and dealt to the players. The players then look what cards they have and what sets they have a better chance of collecting. Then then begin bulding their sets by calling for cards from other players.
My dry description does not do this game justice, it is much more fun to play. It has great educational value, too. Since the authors names and their works get called out during the game all the time, very soon all the players will have memorized who wrote what, and without much effort. This is excellent for children and it will very likely help them in school.
If you love books or if you have a child who could use some help learning to like books, check "Authors" out!
