Bring Your Own Book is the game of borrowed phrases, where players search through books for text to take way out of context.
It’s easy. Players take turns drawing prompts from the deck, then race to find the best phrase in their own book that satisfies the prompt. Since you can use a different book each time, you can play it with any audience, and there’s a practically infinite supply of source material.
What’s the tastiest “name for a candy bar” in that history textbook you’re reading for school? How quickly can you find “lyrics from a country western song” in your dog-training guide? What kind of “advice for graduating seniors” will appear in your anthology of limericks?
