From the Introduction:
When I originally started to write this book, I was an unpublished author. I had a few games represented in magazines, but not a single boxed game on the market. Today, the archive of my works contains more than 600 published games in more than 2000 boxed editions, and more than 20 million copies have been sold all over the world.
What a difference half a lifetime makes when you dedicate yourself to fulfilling your dream!
Over the course of those years, a number of games in this book developed into fully fledged boxed games with specifically adapted materials.
Its interesting to see how some of the games evolved. Goldrush was published as a Wild West card game under its original title Goldrausch, Goal became a soccer card game Tor, Swap was developed into the recently published board game Polynesia, Sono became the tile laying game Robot Master, and Card Chase is now the card game Escalation.
But, what makes this book unique, is that you can play all the games presented here with standard playing materials like cards, dice and a few counters.
So many games to play, so little time! Enjoy!
