    Games of the World: How to Make Them, How to Play Them, How They Came to Be

    From the slip cover:

    From backgammon to the 3,000-year-old Royal Game of Ur, from Oriental kit contests to the universal tit-tat-toe and tug of war, this richly illustrated volume brings together for the first time more than one hundred of the world's most fascinating and enjoyable games.

    Hundreds of color and black-and-white photographs, paintings, and diagrams, and complete step-by-step instructions tell how to make the games, how to play them, and how they came to be. Simple enough for the home crafts person to construct, many of the games will not only provide hours of fun, but will also be unusual and lasting objects of art.

    This grand tour of the games of people as diverse as Arctic Eskimos, African tribesmen, and American schoolchildren provides unexpected insights into life in other cultures -- surprising similarities and intriguing differences -- for the games of a people reflect their history, folklore, and traditions.

    Based on years of research in over sixty countries, Games of the World should be an indispensable part of any family library -- an enduring and appropriate gift for anyone of any age.
