There’s a beauty in the introduction in this book. I just thought it was going to be a humorous book making fun of the workplace and showing funny games that could be played. But there’s something much deeper going on. It’s about recapturing innocence. Remembering how we played as kids before we stayed inside all the time playing video games. And before we grew up.
Sure, some of the games are silly, and a bit reaching for a game you’d actually play at work. But some are really insightful and inspired.
The meeting games could be really interesting. I really want to try Thanks Clive. And Wrong Statement.
And I’m thinking Small Talk would be fun in a meeting, too.
I’m dying to try 2002 Berlin Thunder Season.
I love Business and Pleasure. But it could be extremely dangerous.
There’s even a handy appendix in the back of the book to help you choose games based on the number of players and what’s happening at work. (Going to a meeting? Stuck at your desk?)
Of course this book is really most valuable of you actually put it into practice and recapture a little bit of your youth.
