"UNBORED Games has all the smarts, creativity, and DIY spirit of the original UNBORED ("It's a book! It's a guide! It's a way of life!" --Los Angeles Magazine), but with a laser-like focus on the activities we do for pure fun: to while away a rainy day, to test our skills and stretch our imaginations--games. There are more than seventy games here, 50 of them all new, plus many more recommendations, and they cover the full gambit, from old-fashioned favorites to today's high-tech games. The book offers a gold mine of creative, constructive fun: intricate clapping games, bike rodeo, Google Earth challenges, croquet golf, capture the flag, and the best ever apps to play with Grandma, to name only a handful. Gaming is a whole culture for kids to explore, and the book will be complete with gaming history and interviews with awesome game designers. The lessons here: all games can be self-customized, or hacked. You can even make up your own games. Some could even change the world.The original UNBORED has taken its place as a much beloved, distinctly contemporary family brand.

Soon, there will be a whole shelf of serious fun the whole family can enjoy indoors, outdoors, online and offline"-- Provided by publisher.

This is an awesome book! I lead a Girl Scout troop of 9 girls. They can be a handful to keep busy and working together. This book and the companion book Unbored are both packed with creative ideas for fun and discovery. Working at a library, I don't purchase very many books for my own home collection but I would consider buying this book just have it for perpetual reference. It's really fun with zany illustrations and lots of great ideas. Whether you're bored for 5 minutes or 5 hours, this book has something for everyone.
