Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

All Work and No Play

Mighty Goods. A shopping weblog of cool stuff (via Signal vs. Noise).

The Play's the Thing. NYT tells the story of Cranium and the philosophy behind the company - creating games where no one has to feel like an idiot. Best quote: "Does anyone ever finish a game of Monopoly and not hate someone at the table?"

My family absolutely loves playing games and Cranium makes a few of the best. Gamewright also makes a number of excellent games that have given us hours of fun, especially Rat-a-Tat-Cat and Scrambled States. Many fun gift ideas and great ways to spend some of the holidays away from the television and computer!
