Games for Everybody by May C. Hofmann is an incredibly comprehensive and well-researched guide to a wide variety of games suitable for all ages. This book is a treasure trove for anyone looking to mix up their leisure time with engaging and fun activities.

One of the most remarkable aspects of this book is its inclusivity. Hofmann has curated a diverse collection of games that cater to different interests, skill levels, and physical abilities. From traditional board games to outdoor activities, this book ensures that there is something for everybody, regardless of their preferences or limitations. Whether you are seeking games for family game nights, social gatherings, or even educational purposes, Games for Everybody has you covered.

The instructions for each game are clear, concise, and easy to follow, making it accessible even to those who may be unfamiliar with certain types of games. Additionally, Hofmann provides variations and adaptations for many of the games to accommodate different group sizes or to challenge the participants. This flexibility is a testament to the author's understanding that games are not one-size-fits-all but can be customized to suit specific needs and preferences.

What sets Games for Everybody apart from other game guides is the author's attention to detail and the wealth of additional information provided.

By doing so, she bridges the gap between classic games and contemporary forms of entertainment, catering to a broader audience.

Every one is fond of having a good time when invited out to a party or social. Sometimes a stupid evening has been spent because either the guests were not congenial or the hostess had not planned good games. The purpose of this book is to furnish just what is needed for a pleasant home gathering, church social, or any other indoor occasion.

Very few, if any, of these games require much preparation. Just use what is in the house, follow the directions given, and a good time will be the result. Some of the games for "Adults" can be played by the younger ones, and vice versa . Other games, by being changed a little by the hostess, can be made to suit the occasion.

Many of the good old games that every one has played are here, while the newer ones, which may be strange at first, will prove most enjoyable when every one has "caught on," as the saying is. M.C.H.
