The pen, as they say, is mightier than the sword. But some of those pens are mightier than others. Who wrote more, Charles Dickens or Fyodor Dostoyevsky? Who created the most memorable characters, Jane Austen or William Shakespeare? Who has the most commercial success while alive, Sylvia Plath or Virginia Woolf? And who was the most scandalous, Colette or James Joyce? There are two versions of this game, Modern Authors and Classic Authors. In both, players pit 32 great writers against each other. A great game for anyone who loves books. Parents@Play
