Looking for a version of your favorite game? WS Game Company has a great selection of these brilliant "books!"

Promising review: "These have adorable vintage designs! Sturdy pieces. The board is ripping a bit but we’ve played this dozens of times with our toddler so I suppose that’s expected. Definitely more pricey than the cheap version you could get for $10 at any big store but honestly it’s worth it to me. It lasts so much longer and it's easier to store. Having it in our front room on the bookshelf makes it easily accessible and blends in with our other books." —Spooky Hobbit
