We all know that judging a book by its cover is a Very Bad Thing to do, but every book lover thinks they can sort great novels and mediocre books by sight alone. Now, this game lets you judge books by their covers and find out a little about yourself in the process. This one's for all of my book snobs. You know who you are.
Judgey doesn't ask much. Players must commit to judging ten books on a scale of one to five stars. The scale slides in increments of one-tenth, which means you can judge books with spot-on precision. These books are pulled from the depths of Goodreads, but in the short time I spent playing Judgey, I saw many familiar titles, including The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, and It by Stephen King.
After you judge your 10 random books, Judgey will issue its own judgment of you, based on how your ratings match up to those of the collective Goodreads community. Every time I played, I received a rating of Pretty Damn Fair. "You like some things," Judgey tells me. "Others, not so much. Your consistency is consistent. And we like that. You're not bad at this."
Thank you, Judgey. I appreciate that.
