Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all it's still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Format: Paperback
My wife and I work with the youth in our church. We can't begin to tell you how great this book is and how often we use it. Not only for our youth, but our family and friends love to play so many of these games, too! The book is divided into different categories: Outdoor, indoor, small group, large group, mixers, etc. The directions to each game are easy to understand and have diagrams when necessary. We do not hesitate one bit to recommend this book to anyone who loves a good laugh and enjoys playing games!!

This book is a great resource for summer camp directors or other youth leaders. Each game is described in detail, and categorized by group size and space needed. A must-have for camping programs.

I was looking for a book that has good ice breakers and games for groups. This is the one! I am going to use the relays and mixers chapters of the book to put together a teambuilding event for my office. Most of the games can be played by either chidren or adults.
