About the Author

Growing up in a family with eight children, Matt spent a lot of time with his family often playing games together. He developed a love for creating and collecting fun games, which often led to being called the 'Game Guy' and eventually, to writing this book. More important than providing a fun resource of games, Matt's goal in writing this book was simply to bring families together more, and provide fun and wholesome entertainment for everyone.

This book has been a great resource for our family and our homeschool group. There are 175 games divided into indoor and outdoor games. Each listing begins with how many people you need and what objects you need to play. (Things that we almost always have like balls, pencils, paper, cards, etcetera) The game descriptions are clear and concise and many games also include variations on the original game. We have had a great time learning new games and being reminded of games that I had long forgotten. This is a must-have resource for parents and teachers.

Some of our favorite subcategories include Outdoor and Active Games, Indoor and Quiet Games, Road Trip and Car Games, Sidewalk Games, Words and Numbers Games, Card Games, and Educational Games.

I have used this book several times and have loved all the games in it! There are a few familiar games with great new twists on how to play and how to make things a little more fun or challenging, along with new and exciting games. There are games for all ages and group sizes to play indoors or outdoors. I use this book when planning birthday parties, family reunions, church activities and even playing a game just as a family at home. I know that I will use this book time and time again and use it for years and years to come! It also makes a great gift for friends and family members!

This is exactly what our family needed. I forgot how to play many of the games I played with my family and friends growing up. This book has them all and several I've never even heard of. Great Games has become a staple in our home, and the kids look forward to family night because we get to pull out "the book"!

I am a Dietitian and one thing my clients never fail to ask me for is alternatives to sitting their child in front of the TV. Especially on those cold winter or rainy days indoors. This book is an answer to that question. The games are fun, engaging, and sure to promote happy, healthy family memories. It truly is a must have!

I have two little boys who always want to "play games" and they always want to play "a new game". This book has provided our family with tons of new games that my boys love. It's amazing how putting a twist on a familiar game makes it seem new and fun again.

This book is a gem. The book has so many games and activities for everyone. I have 2 boys and I am always looking for new and interesting things for my family to do...other than watching TV or play a video game. It is also a good reference for adult groups, church groups, teenagers, etc. Check it out. It is more than worth the money you pay to get it.
