Greetings All,

I have often wondered where certain games get their influence from... I have seen a recent trend in board games and that is ones based on books. I know that many have been made that come from the idea of books. But it seems interesting to me that one can take a certain amount of knowledge and put their own spin on the idea. So this is a list made up of games that have been based on books. Feel free to add your own or comment.

-DK

This is kind of an update of http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/15177 so enjoy.

I must admit. This was the first one to come to my mind. I have never read the book, seen the movie, or played the game. However it does fit the criteria for this list and seems to be the archetype as well.

Another one that really fits the criteria. I am not a big fan of putting movie stuff on boxes of books... I'd rather get the 'real' stuff. While I do like this game it can be a hard one to play (and beat).

Ah. One of my favorites, if not my favorite game right now. I really like this game, but found it tremendously different than the book. I think this game will only rise as the English version comes out. The book too is a good read and soon there will be a sequel.

A romp in the depressing world of Lovecraft. Only you get to play. This is a fun game (the one time I played it). I don't know how it plays vs. what's in the books though.

A new title that has just been released in a limited edition. I just ordered it and am anxiously looking foward to playing it. Its roughly based on "Oliver Twist" and players play urchins. It seems like a fun game that you can really do damage to other players if you know what you are doing.

There have been many games based on the Sherlock Holmes universe, along with new games like Mr. Jack and others. I enjoy the stories and look foward to playing Mr. Jack.

Based on the "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R.R. Martin. The name of the game is taken directly from the title of the first book and expansions are named for subsequent books. Fabulous fantasy series.

Based on a creepy short story by Robert Louis Stevenson (The Bottle Imp). The new edition of the game has long excerpts of the story printed on the cards and the entire story is included with the rules.

Based on the one of the greatest works of literature from the Middle Ages - the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri, written between 1308 and 1321 - this is a resource management and tile laying game in which one must proceed through the circles of hell to defeat Lucifer.

Robert Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" is a fantastic novel (the movie stunk on ice). The Avalon Hill game does a great job of capturing the novel, and with some of the variants from the old General articles it makes for a good game. We played this a LOT years ago, especially with the variant for mission scenarios.
