Bart King

The seventy-five games in this book revive the tradition of game playing without computers, joy sticks, boards, or game pieces. All you need for these games can be purchased at the local super center, big box, or hardware store. With tools such as balls, bean bags, broomsticks or canes, and ropes, parents and teachers can organize dozens of hours of fun and challenging activities for parties, summer camps, neighborhood gatherings, and school groups. For all ages, from elementary children to grandparents.

Bart King writes funny-and educational!-books for kids and immature adults. (His title The Big Book of Boy Stuff was once Amazon.com's top-selling children's book.) As a young lad, Bart discovered he could punch people into outer space. Sadly, he lost a lot of friends that way. Today, Bart isrecognized as one of the world's leading superhero experts. (And as a longtime middle school teacher, he is also highly sought after by supervillains!)
