Synopsis: All the instructions, strategies, and tactics for every family's favorite games in one authoritative, fully illustrated volume, including more than 40 games not in the original edition and an entire new chapter on the African board game, Mancale. Much more than a compilation of rote instructions, the lively text captures the rich lore and history behind games.

Review: This enormous compendium of rules, variants, strategies and histories is enough to make any game enthusiast's eyes widen with excitement. Even for so large a volume, The New Games Treasury contains a jaw-dropping amount of information. More than 500 games are covered, ranging from the ancient (chess and go) to the modern (Scrabble and Monopoly).

The book doesn't limit itself to just board and card games. You'll even find the rules for darts, softball, and jacks; even tag and 20 questions are given their due. Each game description starts with a quick summary of the important details--how many can play, the equipment needed, complexity and duration, etc.--and then explains the rules in a manner that's both clear and thorough. Many descriptions are accompanied by notes about the game's lineage, and beautiful illustrations are found throughout the volume. Where other guides give you the bread and butter of games, The New Games Treasury provides you with the whole seven courses and insists that you stay for dessert. It is highly recommended. --Matthew Baldwin
