I like to play this one with the students in my English classes- I assure them it will make them look like they've read far more books than they actually have. I have a few newer reprintings, not the sweet vintage one.

I played this as a child and still remember who wrote what, to the astonishment of my kids.

I remember playing Authors in my childhood. Sure it is pretty much just Go Fish, but I had to pick it up when I saw it because of the nostalgia of playing it then.

Quartet = Happy Families = Authors. Similar to Go Fish, and suitable for playing with children.

A blast from the past. This is a game my stepbrother had and we played as kids with our parents. It's essentially Go Fish, I suppose, but seemed to have a little extra zing to it.

My rating is based completely on nostalgia. Played many games when I was a child with my grandfather in Minnesota. Taught me the authors and titles of American classics using a much used, ancient deck. I still remember the laughter and Grandpa's teasing like it was yesterday. Recieved a deck for Christmas one year from him and still have it. I look forward to sharing the game with my own boys, just to pass the tradition on and relive the times I got to share with my grandfather. [Christmas gift 1970s]

Actually, I don't know if I still own this. I haven't seen it for a while... I used to like to play it as a kid.

A beloved childhood game (I think the copy I grew up with was printed in the 60's, if not earlier). Go Fish with rather frightening pictures of nineteenth-century authors. Another one I wish I could find in the attic.

Educational Go Fish. I grew up playing a friend's copy and still remember the books & names decades later. Not as fun as a fish deck, but bonus points for putting smarts into my brain.

played this game often as a kid. We made up nicknames for the authors, such as "Nate, Skate, the Golden Boy" = Nathaniel Hawthorne, or Charles "that little" Dickens.
