I bought this book because I am involved with a couple of Bunco groups and was, as usual, looking for ideas. I loved the idea of "theme" Bunco parties and think it would be a blast to have a pajama Bunco party (winter), or garden tea Bunco party (summer)... and I liked that the rules for play were included, along with who wins what prizes; seems like each group plays just a little differently than the next, and each adds their own fun twists to the game. I was a little disappointed that none of those quirky differences were presented by a writer that sounded like she collects such things and connects Bunco players from all over the world. She put journal pages in the back of the book for us to record our game nights in - so maybe she'll be asking for those for book two? AND I was a little disappointed with the recipes. I was hoping for a motherlode of appetizers/snacks rather than the dinners/meals that were featured. The groups that I am involved with are mostly snackers. We play, drink, snack, and maybe have dessert during or after.

I'm still glad I bought it, and it would be a nice gift to give at your next Bunco Christmas Party, gift exchange.

Of all the bunco books I've read to date (and I may have exhausted the market), this is my favorite. Why? It's because I feel it's the best representation of what a bunco night and the game of bunco is all about. Author, Leslie Crouch, indicates the spirit of the phenomenon that is bunco in her introduction, when she suggests using this cookbook as an "integral part of every bunco group, passing it from hostess to hostess each month."

In addition to the collection of recipes covering every aspect of planning a bunco evening (Beverages, dips and spreads, appetizers and snacks, into soups, salads and side dishes, and finally, entrees and desserts) she offers bunco party themes and a brief history of this popular game, Official Bunco rules, and journal entry pages, which will make this a valuable addition to any group's "bunco box." You ladies who play KNOW what I mean when I talk about the box. I also enjoyed the hints and tips (questions we all ask ourselves about baking subsitutions and equivalents) and miscellaneous household tips that are helpful to all: Did you KNOW you could clean your toilet with Alka-Seltzer???

I intend to donate a copy to my bunco group, keep one on my kitchen cookbook shelf for party planning, and make it a party favor for the next time I host. Well done!

I flat out don't care for the recipes but the ideas she gives in the book is worth it. If you need ideas for your BUNCO party this book would be for you. It is insightful in that area.
