From multiple-award winning masterpieces of the past decade, to indestructible classics still going strong after 5,000 years of play, these are the games you must play before you die. Well, except for Sorry!.
That game is a blight upon this list and mankind as a whole. Excuse me.
What I'm trying to say is that I wrote this book about games, and I thought you might like it.
"Each game is given its just due with careful examinations of game play, observations, and its place in gaming lore and much more. From easy to learn and play child games to the more challenging and intense strategy games... Serious full time gamers and novices will enjoy this very personal and informative book about board games."
