Ex Libris has been a firm favourite & top seller since Oxford Games first
devised and published the game in 1991. Fresh from the shelves of the famed
British Library in London and the Bodleian Library in Oxford, comes Ex Libris, a
game to challenge your literary acumen and test your writing skills.
Each card gives you the title, author and plot summary of a novel or short
story. At the start of a round one player, taking a turn as the reader, picks a
card and reads it out. The other players then have to write a plausible opening
or closing sentence to the work in an attempt to bluff fellow players into
believing their ‘script’ to be the genuine one. These are all handed in to
the reader, who has meanwhile written down the genuine sentence (given on the
back of the card). They are shuffled, and each is read out. The winning player
is the one who has most votes cast for his or her entry (while further points
are won if you manage to identify the genuine sentence).
One hundred authors representing widely different writing styles are featured
in the game – from Charles Dickens to Harold Robbins, from Jane Austen to
