I learned about this new board game yesterday. Daryl Hannah, of all people, has invented a board game called Liebrary. I haven’t played it (yet) but from what I’ve read, it sounds similar to Balderdash. From this article about the game:
Players listen to the title and a synopsis of a real book, then write down what could be the first line to that book. You earn points for each player who believes that yours is the real first line.
Sounds pretty fun to me: you get to make up complete BS!
The publisher’s site about the game.
Too bad it’s a ripoff of ‘Ex Libris’, which is a game put together by the British Library/Bodleian Library/Oxford games.

Oh, but Daryl isn’t mentioning that in her interviews…she’s just liebraring about being the inventor.
