Bestselling author and worst-drawing artist Ben Orlin expands his oeuvre with this interactive collection of mathematical games. With 70-plus games, each taking a minute to learn and a lifetime to master, this treasure trove will delight, educate, and entertain you with mathematical curios, childhood classics, and soon-to-be classics, each game hand-chosen to be (1) fun, (2) thought-provoking, and (3) easy to play. With just paper, pen, and the occasional handful of coins, you and a partner can enjoy hours of fun — and hours of challenge. Orlin's sly humor, expansive knowledge, and so-bad-they're-good drawings show us how simple rules summon our best thinking.
