Good morning El Moochadores! Now available in bookstores is a new book that explores the wide (and vast! don’t forget “vast!”) world of gaming. Written by veteran games author Ben H. Rome, and Fear the Boot host, Chris Hussey, Games Most Wanted is forty chapters about board, war, video, and table top gaming! Here’s the books synopsis:
Ever thought about capturing a queen, amassing real estate gold, or striking down a zombie or two? For centuries, games have stimulated the imagination. They have divided, and they have united. They have driven our competitive spirit and indulged our fancy. Live an entire lifetime in a few rolls of the dice. Push a few buttons and sustain perfect health. Essentially, games have and will continue to provide people worldwide a break from the everyday grind.
Learn more about board games that have been passed through generations, video games that predict the future, and card games that have brought down the house. Ben H. Rome and Chris Hussey also reveal the culture behind the entertainment—the codes of conduct, the language, the conventions, and the workshops— proving that leisure can be a lifestyle. Something they won’t reveal: how to rescue the princess. Regardless of the hand you’re dealt, Games’ Most Wanted™ is sure to cure any boredom.
The paper back edition is selling for about $12.00 right now making this a cool Christmas gift for the avid gamer in your life.
