This book is fantastic and I haven't even made it past the Icebreakers yet! Leigh does such a great job of clearly stating the rules and giving you examples that I have been curled up in a chair reading The Games Bible like a novel; and I've chuckled more than once at the scenes played out in my head! My teen sisters stole the book from me and are using some of the games at their upcoming lock-in with our church's youth group. They also *ahem* tackled our pastor on Sunday when he was the last one to touch his ear, of course, they didn't tell him that they were playing "Get Down, Mr. President"!

Leigh also does a fantastic job of detailing how to host a game night in your home with family and friends; and I'm totally going to have one! This is definitely one book that will not be gathering dust on my bookshelf!

Thanks to Planned Television Arts for offering me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This book has great games you can play at parties, with a friend out for coffee, even online. It has games for every situation. I don't think i'll ever suffer a dull outing again. I even came across some one-player games. Its organized pretty well with chapters and a games by category list in the back. The games are also explained well. This book was a wonderful investment and is making me want to be more social.

I love game nights and when we gather with friends to get our "game on". I am more than thrilled to take part! What I loved about this book is that it gave me ideas for ice breakers for any gathering, as well as pages and pages of ideas for games anywhere from card games, word games, holiday games..... oh the games!

It seems like my family plays more games around the holidays. When we gather together we undoubtedly have to pull out a game. This Thanksgiving, as this is when I am posting this review, I am pulling out the "Grateful Guessing" game out of the book (page 194). For this game you give each guest three small pieces of paper and a pen ( I am putting them at the dinner place settings). Each person is to to put one thing they are grateful for on each of the three papers. All papers are collected and placed in a bowl. Take turns pulling out a piece of paper and reading it. It is up to the guests to guess who wrote it. The object is you can be as sneaky or as real as you want - but if you wish to stump the group, come up with a funny off the wall thing to be grateful for.... "I am so thankful for what I thought was my appendix rupturing turned out to be gas...." .... well... uh...... really - who could have wrote that?

There are so many great ideas with well written easy to follow instructions. I can see many of these being tweaked to be used for event planning, family outings, meeting ice breakers, and more.

Overall I give this book my highest rating! I will use this over and over again.
