Offer: The Bodleian Game

Item Name & Description: The Bodleian Game is a board game commissioned by Oxford's Bodleian Library back in 1988. It was designed for them by Sara Finch and Leslie Scott, the latter of whom designed Jenga (the two of them did various other titles as Oxford Games).

The game was sold by the Bodleian for a while, but not for many years now, and as one might expect it is extremely hard to find a copy in the US.

The box has minor scuffing. The contents are in fine shape, with only a few record sheets used. The box inserts (scored cardboard which is supposed to hold the cards) have fallen apart a bit (the cards are bagged).

Starting Bid: $100, since it's just a few hours until the end

Notes: I will mail the game within a few days after payment notification. I will require additional payment to mail it outside the US (and it will probably cost a lot, I'm afraid).
