Originally published in 1935, this is an excellent collection of games for adults and children from an era when people had more leisure time and less gadgetry with which to amuse themselves - 'There never was a day when so many games were played, both indoors and outdoors. Increased leisure; fuller appreciation of the value of recreation; greater youthfulness of adults; more frequent social gatherings and more mingling of young people and grown-ups - all such causes as these have helped to multiply the occasions when someone inevitably remarks: "What game can we play?" This book is the answer to that query.' The book contains useful illustrations and the incidental music required for some of the games. Contents include: On playing games- Indoor and party games, Warming up games, Active games, Quiet games, Musical games, Brain test games, Performing games, Surprise games, Christmas games, programmes - Outdoor and picnic games, Field games, Seaside and water games, Camp games, Snow and ice games, programmes - Children's indoor and outdoor games, Indoor games, Outdoor games, programmes- Garden games, programmes
