Board Games In 100 Moves

Ian Livingstone doesn't only write Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, he has also recently collaborated with games designer and author James Wallis to write Board Games In 100 Moves, which relates the history, and often surprising stories, behind the games you know and love to play.

Journey through 8,000 years of history, from Ancient Egyptian Senet and Indian Snakes and Ladders, right up to role-play, fantasy and hybrid games of the present day.

More than 100 games are explored chronologically, from the most ancient to the most modern. Every chapter is full of insightful anecdotes exploring everything from design and acquisition to game play and legacy.

Discover tales of Buddha's banned games, stolen patents, boards smuggled into prison, and Dungeons & Dragons hysteria. Roll six to start, pass go, and learn more about your favourite board games, from Mahjong to Monopoly and more!

And to celebrate the publication of the brand new book, you can meet Ian Livingstone at a very special event at Board Games Cafe Draughts, in London's Waterloo! Tickets are on sale now, and with each one purchased, you get to attend a talk by Ian, a signed copy of this much anticipated book, and you will also get to take part in a gaming session where you might even find yourself play a game with the man himself!

Board Games Cafe Draughts, Waterloo.

Purchase your ticket for the launch event here, and if you can't attend you can buy Board Games In 100 Moves here.
