This is a book which was made out of the briefest of ideas that came to comedian Dave Gormans head – he wanted to play a board game so he opened up the offer to the whole of the world on Twitter and took on a lot of offers that came his way.

Dave Gorman travels the length of the British isles to try out new board games, old classics and even the most unusual ones to meet lots of new people and learn about games that he hasn’t heard of before.

Whilst the book is of an unusual topic, it is rather slow paced and if you are not the biggest fan of board games you may find the book a bit, sad to say, boring. If you are a Dave Gorman fan you will definitely enjoy it.
