The team from Electric Literature has created a fantastic card game that will become a next addiction of book lovers.
The game is called Papercuts, and “it’s what Kurt Vonnegut, James Baldwin, and Virginia Woolf would play if they were alive, locked in a room together, and forced to play a card game.”
Papercuts can be played by 4 to 8 people. One round takes less than an hour, so you’ll still have lots of time to discuss the last book you’ve read.
The game has 75 question cards and 175 answer cards, plus a set of rules. It comes in a sleek box making it ready to gift someone who loves books just as you do.
Papercuts literary game – rules
All players draw 8 cards from the answer pile and the Editor flips over a question card to start the game.
The Writers each submit answer cards to fill in the blanks and the Editor chooses their favorite submission. The winning Writer takes the question card for 1 point.
The person to the left of the Editor becomes the new Editor, and the game continues until someone wins 5 points or everyone wants to do something else.
Electric Literature released the game on Kickstarter. So far, $18,000 was pledged of $15,000 goal, and there are still a few weeks to go!
The project will be funded on November 30, and, yes, it will be shipped for Christmas.
Electric Literature is an influential non-profit organization with a mission to ensure that literature remains a vibrant presence in digital times.
