For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of board games. A few of my current favorites are Ticket to Ride (especially the Pennsylvania map), Betrayal at House on the Hill (can’t wait for the upcoming Betrayal Legacy), Pandemic (and its offspring), and Downforce (a wonderful auto racing game).
But there are times when you find yourself stuck somewhere without any games. No cards. No dice. Not even a coin to flip.
That’s why I put together the ebook 17 Games You Can Play Right Now!.
As long as you have a pencil and paper, you can play any of these 17 great public domain games, including laugh-out-loud party games, deep-thinking strategy games, clever word games, and more. I rewrote the rules from top to bottom to ensure clarity and consistency. (That was the goal, anyway. You can decide if I succeeded.) Here’s the full list of games:
- Bulls & Cows (2 players)
- Capture (2 to 4 players)
- Categories (3 to 12 players)
- Celebrities (4 to 12 players)
