    "Games galore for all stages of life"

    Games is a compendium in its own right, as with the addition of just a very few items it allows you to play oodles of games in a number of different categories. Games vary from children's games to drinking games, solitary adult games to family games; everyone is catered for.

    I really liked the fact that Games includes many games that can be enjoyed with little or no equipment, including variations of old favourites - like Twister - it tells in detail how to play the game with items most of us would have lying around the house. It also outlines ways in which to make some non-competitive games, competitive.

    A really useful little book to have around if you're looking for ideas for adult party games, or want some fresh ideas for drinking games at your stag do.

    "Fun Games for Family and Friends"

    What a fun little book on games this is. I really enjoyed listening to this and learnt many new games to try out with family and friends.
    Ace McCloud has put together a great list of games to play that are well-explained and inexpensive. One of the best things about the book though is how positive and motivating it is. It really puts you in the mood to try out some of the ideas here.
    For me, the best part was games for the family. Many of the items that you need can be found around the house and the ideas were innovative and easy-to-follow.
    A great source for games. Excellent!

    "Lots of fun and simple games"

    I am really into playing games and was looking for some new ideas. This is a nice audiobook that goes through a number of very simple and basic but fun games for all ages. There is a number of very easy family games that are especially great for children since they are not complicated to learn and also have an educational benefit. I particularly liked the section on the more active games with a basketball for example. I am going to try a bunch of these with my family. Although it is not really my thing there is a section on adult drinking games which has loads of very funny ideas for games that I have never heard before. Nice and simple guide.

    "Best Collection of Games in One Book!"
    Any additional comments?

    I am a person who is always on the lookout for good games to kill some time especially whenever boredom pays a visit. I could spend hours and hours on my tab just to get through levels after levels of challenging games. But sometimes, I must admit that I grow tired pretty easily of playing the games especially if I play on it a lot that’s why I always search for new and popular once but not a lot of them are easy to find.

    When I found this book, I thought that it was not going to be great because most of them are physical activities which you’ll have to do with other people. Well, I just proved myself wrong! This audio book is actually so perfect for me because it did not just introduce new games to me but it has also taught me that we don’t have to be on our devices all the time and play on our own. Sometimes, it is a lot better when you have other people to play with. It forms a special bond with other people such as friends and family and it is a lot more enjoyable.

    "Great and funny games for everybody!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Games: 101 Fun Games to Play with Friends, Family & Children to be better than the print version?

    Audio book is better than print version because you can actively listen when you want, just simply switch on your electronic devices. You can even listen in a dark room in your favorite position. Very good narrator makes experience of listening even more funny and interesting.


    What other book might you compare Games: 101 Fun Games to Play with Friends, Family & Children to, and why?

    I can compare "Games" to "Creativity" and "Spirituality" because all three audio books refer to socializing as a great way of spending times. McCloud highlights how important is family and how to organize time together in most creative, funny and positive way.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Stunning proposition is origami – a Japanese traditional paper craft. I still got a book about origami and pass it to my son and he absolutely loves it. It is great solution to develop fine motor skills and hours of a great fun. Also you can watch You Tube tutorial that is very supportive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    “Games” makes me feel nostalgic. I remember when I was a child I like to playing charades, when you using gesture and body language to show some characters, film title or quotation. Everybody else have a great fun to guess what you are pretending. I also remember “Monopoly” and “Euro Business” as very engaging and valuable board games.


    Any additional comments?


    “Games” by Ace McCloud is a wonderful audio books that offers you different games that you can play with your family, friends and on your own.
    I like the best funny and active games that you can play with your children like building games, magic cup game, games with chair. Also you can practice inside hide and seek and bowling, especially when the weather is not good enough to go out. Clever idea is to make our own bubbles from soap liquid.

    "Game Suggestions for All Ages and Seasons"
    If you could sum up Games: 101 Fun Games to Play with Friends, Family & Children in three words, what would they be?

    fun, fun, fun


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters as this is a nonfiction book, but I especially liked the children's games as I am always active in church and need games that kids can play.


    What about Joshua Mackey’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Mackey always puts forth a great performance. He makes the instructions for games easy to listen to and understand.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Games: 101 Fun Games to Play with Friends, Family & Children?

    I will definatley use many of the games at showers, parties and at church for the kids. I will also be using them for my daughters backyard wedding. There are so many games from which to choose from toddlers and young children all they way to things to do with the family like camping and fishing.


    Any additional comments?

    This book suggests just about anything you can think of to play games and special activities in order for family and friends to have fun. There is a wide variety of games exhibited with easy instructions on how to play them. There is even a chapter on how to understand common field games like football, baseball, soccer and more. It gives suggestions on family outings and things like backyard movie night. This little audio book packs so much into it, it is hard to choose. There are even adult drinking games, which should be played responsibly.

    "Fun Games For You And The Whole Family!"
    What does Joshua Mackey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't have a lot of time, so audio books help me when I'm looking to get some "reading" in when i'm busy with a mindless task.


    Any additional comments?

    Kids today spend too much time on their Ipads, Tablets, Computers, and televisions. Even though these devices were made to bring people together and connect them across vast distances, they only make us more distant from the people that should matter most.

    Luckily, guides like these exist to bring back some of the family magic from back when we were kids.

    You're probably going to need to force your kids to play with you the first time, but the games in this book are so good that they'll be asking you for a rematch!

    I have, and this book was the same: a great performance with an even and engaging tone and no mistakes.

    The game "Never Have I Ever"! This was the greatest party game ever.

    What made the experience of listening to Games: 101 Fun Games to Play with Friends, Family & Children the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoy listening to Joshua Mackey read Games: 101 Fun Games to Play with Friends, Family and Children. He is an outstanding narrator, with a voice for radio and reading books such as these. He always keeps my attention and never has be bored. I follow directions better by listening rather then reading instructions. I am very pleased to have such a great game book on audio.


    Any additional comments?

    I really love this book with 101 games! This book is filled with fun for children and adults. Many of these games are games you can play with what you have in your own home. There is no need to go out and buy anything!

    The family games included in this book are just perfect for the holidays or anytime when families gather together; you'll be sure to keep the room entertained for a good amount of fun times.

    This book also includes some very awesome drinking games that I can’t wait to try out with my friends this weekend.

    This book is sure to bring hours of fun for everyone involved! A must have for the coffee table.

    "Go Play!"

    With this book, I have no excuse for for boredom and I can non longer avoid games that I have forgotten how to play. I was taken back to my childhood as the basic games were described, games like tag, hide-and-seek, and I spy. They even included "Marco" "Polo" in the fun!

    This is a compendium of almost every western game ever invented, including board games, card games, parlor games, outdoor games, water games and even drinking games! (Hmmm, did they include cops and robbers?)

    Hope you have the fun I experienced listening to this book!

    Joshua Mackey has done a great job in several audiobooks I have purchased previously, and this one is no exception.


    Any additional comments?

    It's refreshing to find a book that encourages playing games away from a video screen. This book has excellent ideas for passing time and building relationships through play, something that is easy to neglect as adults. Plus, late summer is the perfect time to put some of these games into action now that the kids are bored and school hasn't started quite yet. Whip out a couple of these games and get ready for time to fly!

    "Bond with family and friends with this game book"

    I purchased this games book as a means of getting my family involved in bonding rather than the TV. Like most families these days, our attention was focused elsewhere instead of building bonds. I have to say this book has done wonders and the kids event beg for us to play some of the games in it. The book offers an endless amount of games for all ages. We can't wait to take this on vacations and holidays to share it with the entire family.

    This audio is filled with all sorts of great games! I had a lot of fun with my family playing the children friendly ones such as the magic cup and freeze dance.Hot potato was also another fun one that everyone enjoyed. There where some great adult games in here as well along with plenty of ideas for modifying existing games to something new and exciting. Audio was at a great price, well narrated and the enjoyment you will get from this is well worth it! Highly recommended!
