The best games book ever-for kids and the whole family, from the team that bought us the critically acclaimed, award-winning, best-selling UNBORED: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun 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 all do for pure fun, to while away a rainy day, to test our skills and stretch our imaginations-games. Covering the full gambit and then some, from old-fashioned favorites to today's high-tech games, the book offers a gold mine of creative, constructive fun: Complicated Clapping Games, Bike Rodeo, Google Earth Challenges, Croquet Golf, Climate Change Games, 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 lesson 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 is already a much beloved, distinctly contemporary family brand. UNBORED Games will extend the franchise and be followed by UNBORED Adventure, both in the new handy, flexibound format. Soon, there will be a whole shelf of serious fun the whole family can enjoy indoors, outdoors, online and offline.
