Review

"This extraordinary collection of word games, visual tricks, and intellectual assaults on the conventional is a treasure trove of the artistic and socio-linguistic conundrums which the Surrealists—André Breton, Tristan Tzara and their associates—cultivated. Its compiler, Alastair Brotchie, reminds us that for the Surrealists games were an important item in the armoury of unexpected weaponry with which they waged war on bourgeois society and thought."— The Spectator "Of great value to teachers, comedy writers, and other problem-solvers, this is an illustrated compendium of ways to be inventive, humorous or absurd through deliberate irresponsibility or 'planned incongruity.'"— Ballast Quarterly Review "These games will prove to you that not only was Lautremont justified as to poetry; one could add a rider: 'Surrealism too can be made by all.'"— The Times Literary Supplement

The box is slightly larger than a box of playing cards, but has TONS of fun games, some history lessons on the surrealists and a fold-out game created by Tanguy and Breton. Wish the whole thing was bigger, since it tends to disappear in a bookcase, however it's great fun and recommended.

I used this in my acting class. Lots of fun and interesting stuff here. Some of the materials included in the package may not be suitable for the prudish. But it is a book of surrealist games!
