I love board games, so maybe I started out with a positive bias, but this work of non-fiction was great. It;s the kind of book you can read only the part that interests you and still love it or all of it. I borrowed this book from the library, but now I think I may order a copy for myself.
I loved the in depth background on games, but also the little snippets of info you get about games as they changed over time. A great non-fiction read, but also a good resource for game lovers.
