It's a source of endless entertainment and enjoyment, an absolute necessity for every family's bookshelf. With more than 250 games for both kids and adults, from solitaire to party diversions for large groups, along with 300 photographs that show how to play, this is a true compendium of fun. Some demand skill; others require a little luck to win. Of course, there are many of the familiar favorites, including poker, gin rummy, Monopoly®, chess, checkers, craps, cribbage, whist, battleships, and twenty questions. Others are less well known, but just as satisfying, such as Wolf & Goats, played on a checkers board; kriegspiel, a variant of chess that rewards detective work, reasoning, and intuition; and winking, an exciting game filled with tension where one player becomes "the murderer." There's something perfect for any occasion.
