The Great Book of Family GamesBook - 2002
Bring more fun into your life! In this panorama of play are games old and new, familiar and barely known. but all perfect for spending quality time with your family and friends. Pick from classics like Agone, Backgammon, the ancient Royal Game of Ur, and Chinese Checkers. Get out the cards for Canasta, Rummy, Forty Flush, and the very simple To The Point. Roll the dice, or take your "chances" with Bango, Bezique, Teresina and Tontina. Go on a Conquest, a variation of Checkers where you're trying to capture a hypothetical fortress: the strategic challenge is exciting. And, hundreds of others, including ones especially for kids. (They won't be able to resist playing games called "Careful, Fido!" or "I Doubt It," where they have to guess whether opponents are telling the truth or not.) You'll never hear the words "There's nothing to do" again!
