If you were around the book blogosphere between 2013 and 2016, you may have heard of a little thing called The Bookish Games. Originally hosted on A Bookish Heart and then moved over to Oh, the Books!, The Bookish Games was an original creation by myself (Asti) that attempted to incorporate some of my favourite books into a little game called Mafia.
I was really hesitant to launch the feature at first, thinking no one would find the idea appealing, but the book blogosphere embraced my madness and during those three years I created eight different editions (and one reboot) of The Bookish Games. Unfortunately in 2016, due to life, I decided to step away from The Bookish Games and while there was talk of others taking it over nothing ever happened with it… until now.
Thanks to a little encouragement by Joséphine, I have decided to relaunch The Bookish Games with its own site. If you’ve played the Games before, feel free to look back at the Previous Editions and reflect on the craziness, it’s all been imported. And if you haven’t played before, click on those links in the menu to the left to find out more about what The Bookish Games entail and how you can get involved.
And now, without further ado, let us embrace the madness once again. Our next edition of The Bookish Games is inspired by the one and only Vicious by V. E. Schwab.
The game is going to start on Saturday, October 6th, which is just less than two weeks away. Sign-ups for the game will be open until Saturday the 29th, and there are 17 spots available.
To sign up, just leave a comment below. We will be updating the sign-up list on this post as we check the comments. Everyone will be contacted by the 1st with role information and access to private pages.
NOTE: Sign-ups are now full. Any additional players will be added to the waiting list! Don’t worry though, there’s still a chance you’ll make it in the game. We usually require at least one replacement during the games so there is a chance you’ll still get to play and even if not the spectator chat is always a lot of fun.
