From the British Library and Bodleian Library shelves comes a game to challenge your literary acumen and test your writing skills. To play, one player takes a card and reads out the title, author and plot of a novel. The other players then have to write a plausible opening or closing sentence in an attempt to bluff fellow players into believing it is actually correct. These suggestions are then read out along with the correct lines, and players vote for the most likely entry. A wide range of writing styles are represented by a range of one hundred authors from Dickens and Austen, to Barbara Cartland and Harold Robbins.
