Meet the Author

Growing up in a family with eight children, Matt spent a lot of time with his family often playing games together. He developed a love for creating and collecting fun games, which often led to being called the 'Game Guy' and eventually, to writing this book.

More important than providing a fun resource of games, Matt's goal in writing this book was simply to bring families together more, and provide fun and wholesome entertainment for everyone.

    Fantastic Find!

    Fantastic find! This exceptional, creative compilation of games and activities has been one of my greatest investments. As a mother of small children I have turned to it often to teach principles, fill time constructively, develop skills, and create fun times and memories with my little ones. My husband has used it in his work place to build morale and foster an attitude of teamwork with his work associates. My brother has used it for inexpensive date ideas and to plan high school and college activities. And my neighbor and I have used ideas in the book to provide entertainment at neighborhood barbeques and various social and religious gatherings. We have yet to encounter a gathering where ideas in the book haven't proven extremely beneficial, rewarding, fun, entertaining, unifying, simple, and memorable. Again, a fantastic find!

    Great Games for Our Family

    This book was a walk down memory lane for me. As I flipped through the pages of games I recognized many games my father taught my brothers and I to play. These games are ones that he and his siblings would play when they were young.

    I love that these games require few materials; these are games that you can just grab a pen and paper or some dice or a few coins or a deck of cards. These are games that you can play any where, almost any time. The games have simple rules, straight forward instructions and require common household items. I am amazed at the diversity I saw - games for 2 or 3 people, large numbers, word games, acting games, indoor, outdoor, all seasons, sitting, running. I saw games for everyone. I can see so many uses for this book in our life!

    Although we are not a "games family" we are trying to institute a family games night each week. We are slowly adding board and card games to our arsenal; This book is a great addition to our household.

    Another idea I have in mind for this book is to take it for use when we volunteer at the seniors' home. The games are simple enough that my children could play (and teach) them to the grandmas and grandpas.

    Thanks to the author, Matthew Toone, for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest opinions.
