RAVENNA - Bring Your Own Book Game Night

Apr 8 2015 7:00 pm
Apr 8 2015 8:00 pm

Presented by Do Better Games


Bring Your Own Book is the game of borrowed phrases, where players search for text to take way out of context. Players take turns drawing prompts from the deck, then race to find the best phrase in their own book that satisfies the prompt. Since you can use a different book each time, you can play it with any audience, and there's a practically infinite supply of source material.

  • Is there a tasty "name for a candy bar" in that sci-fi novel you've been toting around?
  • How quickly can you find a "line from a country western song" in your dog training book?
  • Will there be any "advice for graduating seniors" in your anthology of limericks?

Meet the creators of this exciting new game. Bring your own book, and we'll try a few rounds together! This is sure to please all you bookwroms out there!
