By J. Ward on April 26, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Our family plays games, and we cant live without this book. In fact, we dog-eared our first copy so much we purchased another here on Amazon. Included are rules and strategies for more than 250 games (indoor and outdoor). The book is easily divided into 5 parts: 1 Card Games; 2 Board Games;3 Dominoes and Dice Games; 4 Family Games, and 5 Sporting Games. Whether you're looking for a new game for an inside rainy day, an activity to get the family moving outside, an ordganized game for large get together or family reunion, or simply a quick fact to settle an argument regarding a rule to a familiar game, it's in this pages. If you happen to need fresh idea for new games (I use this book for that purpose often), you'll find this a fantastic resource. I'm so glad I ran across this book on Amazon, my days of finding the perfect game for every situation are finally over. I purchased it new from an Amazon Marketplace Seller, not direct from the website. I received the exact same book, shipped quicker than Amazon, in perfect condition and $10 cheaper. Try marketplace sellers for exceptional value on new items.

and noticed that it describes lots of games and many variations of common games. I bought it for dominos, but other games in it are interesting too.
