A great compendium of classic and modern boardgames. Outstanding games include The Game of Y, China Moon, Surround (a kind of Go-lite), Roundabouts and of course Checkers. Great to take on trips with kids.

Maybe not exactly the 15 greatest, but it is still a terrific resource for great games. Although designed for younger players, most of the abstract strategy games are true classics that you can spend years playing and further digging into the depth that each one has. In my opinion, this is a must-have book for anyone interested in board games, as it is nicely designed compilation.

I am biased - I was a consultant on the book.

Typical Klutz quality, which means very good and very fun. Love it.

An excellent, excellent book for children, which includes some challenging games for the parents as well. This has got everything from Checkers variants, to a Kramer game, to a dexterity game. You can either buy China Moon for $25 at a game shop, or this whole book for $10-15. Highly recommended!

A great collection of games light enough to play with young children. The "never lose a piece" container is not anywhere near as good as it should be but, to be fair, I have not yet lost a piece... Otherwise, it crams an awful lot of variety into a small space.

This is an amazing package for the money. It features several super games and "kid-ifies" some classics like go.

A super bargain and great for keeping in the car.

Note: "Greatest" is definitely a relative term. The game "Scatter" is just terrible.

A gift from my friend, perfect for portable 2 player games, not really the greatest as the title said. Probably would if one of them really Agricola. But instead, all of them are abstract games.
