Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
there is something uncovered in this book that i have not found elsewhere. caillois' mapping of play challenges and at many points, exceeds that of huizinga and other play scholars.

Format: Paperback
I agree with ghandoff. Best read after reading Huizinga's, Homo Ludens. Note: the read takes some perseverance and it is well justified.
