Family Games: the 100 Best

In Family Games: The 100 Best, top game designers and publishers write about the most enjoyable, most cleverly designed titles of the last one hundred years. Their essays cover the spectrum from board games to card games, wargames to miniatures games to role-playing games, including old favorites and little known gems. These are the games that the designers themselves play, the ones that have inspired their most popular inventions.

Essayists include such legendary creators as Alan R. Moon (designer of Ticket to Ride), Matthew Kirby (Apples to Apples), Richard Garfield (Magic: The Gathering), Susan McKinley Ross (Qwirkle), Ken Levine (BioShock), Peter Olotka (Cosmic Encounter), Leo Colovini (Clans), Mike Selinker (Risk: Godstorm), Tom Wham (Great Khan Game), James Ernest (Kill Dr. Lucky), Phil Orbanes (Cartel), Eric Goldberg (Junta), David Parlett (Hare & Tortoise), Kevin Wilson (Descent), Emiliano Sciarra (Bang!), Warren Spector (Toon), Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson (co-founders of Games Workshop), and dozens of other noteworthy and award-winning designers. Family Games: The 100 Best also features a foreword by board game legend and Senior Director of Product Acquisition for Hasbro Games Mike Gray (Fortress America) and an afterword by author and actor Wil Wheaton (Stand By Me, Star Trek: The Next Generation).

Editor James Lowder has helmed more than a dozen critically acclaimed anthologies and authored several best-selling novels, including Prince of Lies and Knight of the Black Rose. He’s been a finalist for the Stoker Award and International Horror Guild Award, and has won an ENnie Award and four Origins Awards.

This book is available in bookstores as a softcover paperback.
