Literary Board Games

The Shiningshining

In this creepy game, one player controls the Overlook Hotel, and the other the Torrence family, each trying to destroy — or at least best — the other. Unlike most of the games on this list, this one was created with the support of the original author, and in fact Stephen King was one of its first play-testers. You can download it here.

  1. For a high school class project, my daughter and her friends created a board game based on Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, complete with board, player pieces, action cards and quotation cards, and unifying graphics all (movement of the pieces was based on a player’s knowledge of “Hamlet” and Shakespeare – his life and the world around him). They did an incredible job and there was talk of potentially finding backers to market it. Maybe some day they will jump back on it’s bandwagon!
