Review:

"This book may be used by an instructor to energize his or her classroom with fun and challenging problems. The games do not require any special equipment. Most can be played with paper, pencil and a copy of the game board. It is a good collection of different types of strategy games. By design, each game fosters mathematical growth. Many of the games originate from various countries around the world. This will allow the reader to experience a bit of cultural growth." -- MAA Reviews

"This is a nice collection of board games, and when pupils will play such games, they will develop some winning strategies for these games, and these skills will probably help in cultivating certain attitudes and perhaps working schemes to tackle mathematical problems." -- European Mathematical Society

"I recommend this book for teachers seeking enrichment activities for their students or ideas for a family math event. These games would also be ideal for use when there are an extra five minutes during the day or for an advisory period. Students may enjoy working through the book independently as they could easily understand the rules of each game and play them with peers or family members." -- Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School
