Excerpt from The Book of Games: With Directions How to Play Them

The object of this little book is to give, to those who need them, a number of new games, with changes rung on the old favorites. It came to be written in this way. Some two years ago twenty people, particularly choice and congenial spirits, gravitated together and called themselves the Game Club. It was hardly a club, except in name, for there were no officers, and no dues, and no quarrels; but all were agreed upon a few necessary points. All felt that they cared more for games than for dancing. All were ready to lay aside their dignity and vanity for the sake of making games a success. All agreed that the meetings should be fortnightly and each time at a different member's house. All agreed to agree.
