The world's best board games, spruced up for the 21st century. The 15 Greatest Board Games in the World features a varied selection of games to play on 15 different game boards, along with crystal-clear directions for play. Each spread is uniquely illustrated in appealing style. Custom-designed playing pieces, dice, and other accoutrements come in the storage compartment attached to the book, which is ingeniously engineered to lie flat during game play.
The games themselves range from the familiar (Checkers) to the exotic (Tigers & Goats, the national game of Nepal) and from the modern (the award-winning Corsaro) to the ancient (the 4,500-year-old Royal Game of UR). Each has been extensively play-tested by kids and Klutzniks alike; it was tough, but someone had to do it.
Comes With: 44 colored plastic playing pieces, 36 specialized tokens, 12 geometric playing pieces, 2 dice
