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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
“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.
The best thing about this book is that it has practical games that your family and friend can actually play at home and even out there.
The book doesn't give a story but the introduction will do for me.... just to answer this question
And he is the Bomb!! book after book he's just the bomb
Yes i did it one sitting and repeated it later
"Game Suggestions for All Ages and Seasons"
fun, fun, fun
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.
Mr. Mackey always puts forth a great performance. He makes the instructions for games easy to listen to and understand.
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.
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!"
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.
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!
"Great New Games for Parties"
I would recommend this to all of my friends. There are games that are appropriate for everyone. My family has game night once a month, and this book gave us some great games to add to our list. We also played a few of the drinking games with some friends, and they were hilarious.
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.
If you're looking for new game ideas, this is the book for you.
"Gamers start here!"
If you are a gamer, this book is for you! Listen to it and find out how you can play so many games from home and make them yourself with a simple budget. Why don't you give this book a try and surprise yourself and family!
"Fun for the whole family and friends!"
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.
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.
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!
"Great Games for You and Your Family"
Joshua Mackey has done a great job in several audiobooks I have purchased previously, and this one is no exception.
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.
"Great games for fun times with family and friends!"
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!
"Wow, more games for the family!"
From the classics to ones you haven't ever heard of, this game book is packed full of fun times for the whole family!!! I'm excited to have this "reference" resource so that I know the rest of our family nights are going to be filled with at least one new game to play with my friends, husband and kids. I recommend this book!
