By M on February 10, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is possibly my favorite book of games. It contains instructions for a variety of parlor games written in "period" language--the premise is that it was written by a stuffy old Victorian clergyman and updated by his 1920s college-boy nephew. I thought this was pulled off pretty well, and the description of the game 'Crambo' actually made me laugh out loud. I've tested many of the games with my friends and got good results. 'Adverbs' is a particular favorite.
One of the nice things about this book is that it is small enough to be easily portable. Also nice are the period illustrations.
For such a little book it generates a lot of fun.

This one kind of feels like it was written in an afternoon, or perhaps as the result of drawing a short straw. It's short, its attempts at Victorian-sounding speech are clumsy and inconsistent, and the games it describes are fine but nothing special.

This was purchased as a prize for a game day with friends, but it became qite a hot topic all by itself.
