This user-friendly and visually appealing book offers a collection of board games of strategy — some old, most very recent. None involve chance or hidden information. Perfect for anyone who enjoys an intellectual challenge, these are chiefly new diversions that were chosen by the authors for their strategic and tactical qualities. Contents include sections on games for two and three players, plus a chapter dedicated to mathematical games (including Nim and games on graphs). Additional chapters discuss the theory and history of board games. Numerous diagrams throughout the book clarify the text, and a helpful glossary offers clarifications of rules.
