KIRKUS REVIEW

For those who grew up playing charades, joining spelling bees, writing jingles, completing limericks, playing anagrams, doing crossword puzzles, this book is a must. On the foundations of games with words and intelligence tests of college boards, Joseph Shipley has built a pyramid of variations, some simple, others vastly more complicated. Games for two or more, or games to play alone. Recommended as an exercise in developing word power as well.
