Game On

By Laura Silverman & Gloria Chao &
Game On by Laura Silverman & Gloria Chao &  digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A charming and inclusive YA anthology all about games—from athletic sports to board games to virtual reality—from editor Laura Silverman and an all-star cast of contributors.


From the slightly fantastical to the utterly real, light and sweet romance to tales tinged with horror and thrills, Game On is an anthology that spans genre and style. But beneath each story is a loving ode to competition and games perfect for anyone who has ever played a sport or a board game, picked up a video game controller, or rolled a twenty-sided die.

A manhunt game is interrupted by a town disappearing beneath the players' eyes. A puzzle-filled scavenger hunt emboldens one college freshman to be brave with the boy she's crushing on. A series of summer nights full of card games leads a boy to fall for a boy who he knows is taken. And a spin the bottle game could end a life-long friendship.

Fifteen stories, and fifteen unforgettable experiences that may inspire readers to start up that Settlers of Catan game again.

“This is the first book of short stories that I have ever read, and I have to say, it disappointed me. The book certainly wasn't bad, but it wasn’t that great either. I only really enjoyed about fifty percent of the stories and I felt like a lot of the stories just weren’t that interesting. There were also quite a lot of allusions to real world online trends and games which didn’t really work for me because when I read I'm generally trying to avoid all of that. A few of the stories were written beautifully though, with characters and plots I loved. This book was really diverse and had a great cast of characters and stories.”
