Great game. The game design is low profile enough to allow the players to interact with each other while being complex enough to allow interesting decisions. Always brings laughs and a strong sense of tension.

Biblios is an excellent game.

Refreshing mix of card draft and auction mechanics. Very quick play, but still with meaningful decisions. Scales well for 2, 3 or 4 players.

[Update] Haven't played a disappointing game of this yet, regardless of edition or player count. Genius.

Biblios is a really fun. The choices are tough from the start, and only get harder when the auction rolls around. I highly recommend it, and I look forward to my next play.

Fast and fun push your luck/bidding/set collection game. It's nice although it misses some variance.

May08: Pretty high initial rating from me. The theme is completely forgettable, but the game is a lot of fun. It's a self published game, but the cards and components are perfectly alright by me. The actual game is an auction and set collection game, but pretty far removed from Ra. You spend the first half of the game doing a fun card drafting bit that will induce moans and groans. The second half is a reasonably traditional auction game. It makes sure that the items are all off different value to the different players however. I enjoyed it and look forward to trying it with some more players.

My wife hasn't been too taken with it. I'm partial to the bluffing aspects at this time.

Rather than dealing the cards and have an auction - the players select the cards to go to each pool (personal, other player select for personal, auction pool).
Both phases have an interesting components.
The card draft as players seed the auction pool and their own hands leads to several difficult decisions
Then there is an auction phase which is also nicely done where you can purchase cards to finish off sets or impact the value of the sets.

The game has a lot of player interaction.

It is a game that lives up to its hype.

Oh, wow, I fForgot all about this game!! Played it once several years ago, and I just now saw it and thought, hey, what was that? I don't think I would remember how to play it, now. But I remember it's a pretty interesting concept!

I really enjoy the mix of casual and strategic play. The Gift Phase uses a neat drafting mechanic that sets up a 2nd phase that plays out a bit like For Sale, but I prefer the theme of collecting rare books over selling property. The artwork and components are all top notch too. Overall, this is an excellent filler game that's should appeal to just about any kind of gamer.

I bought this for my parents (very enthusiastic but not yet hardcore boardgamers) as something that would play quite quickly with not many rules to remember. The emphasis was also on a solid 2 player game which can be played with more rather than the reverse.

Mechanisms are simple but involving; I love the clever 2 phase design.

More plays definitely coming when I can manage them.

Great little game. Quick and simple, but deep and fun. After 1 play, couldn't wait to play again. 2nd play probably took less than 20 min with 4 players. Love the 2 phases.

I played the old Scripts & Scribes version had found it to be a decent filler. If you like fillers such as For Sale and Money, this will be right up your alley.

Wow! An excellent game (after one play). Reminds me of Modern Art for some reason. Granted there's little computation required in this one, but the set collection, slight bluffing, sensing what other players value, and manipulating "stocks" are all common elements. It's supposedly good with two, a big plus.

Great little filler with auction, set collection, drafting. Subtle depth with simple rules, my favorite combination.

Works best if you mutter Latin curses as your manuscripts become valueless. Decent theme in spite of itself.
