*want*

So there I was, idly surfing Amazon when my eye was caught by only the best board game ever!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present BOOKOPOLY.

That's right - it's all the goodness of Monopoly mixed with the awesomeness of books!




Here's the website blurb:

Book-opoly A Novel Property Trading Game Celebrating the Classics. Open a book! The world awaits you! Book-opoly allows a look inside the many worlds contained in classic literature. It's a traditional trading game where players buy, sell and trade their way to fun with family and friends. Interesting facts about the books and the authors are printed on the back of each property deed. Roll the dice and advance to READ. Collect Book stores and trade them in for Libraries. Who knows! You may soon be elected President of the Book Club --- or you may be tossed out of the game for three turns and sent to WATCH TV! Whatever happens, you are going to have fun - and perhaps learn a little something too! Tokens include fly, carousel horse, worm, whale, glasses, clipper. For 2 to 6 players, Ages 8 and up. Begin at "Goodnight Moon" and "Where the Wild Things Are" and end with "The Great Gatsby" and "The Grapes Of Wrath".

Needless to say I *want* this muchly. Sigh. Why must shipping internationally be so prohibitive?
