Wayne Schmittberger-game inventor and frequent contributor to Games magazine-has canonized the house rules and variations of a plethora of games in this fascinating book. Imagine playing Toric Scrabble, where words can go off the right side of the board and "wraparound" to the left. Or how about a round of Tactical Nuclear Risk, where each player is given a couple of bombs to lob at enemy territory? And if changing the rules isn't enough for you, you can change the object of the game, as in Extinction Chess, which is played exactly like normal chess except you lose if your.

New Rules for Classic Games, by games expert R.

The first: actual new rules for classic games. Schmittberger presents these as new rules for classic games on the flimsy basis that they can be played with Scrabble/chess/Go equipment. Far too many of the variations are elementary, stuff I could have come up with myself with a moment's thought, as with the interminable chapter on checkers variations that differ only trivially. For the most part they're missable. The third: Theory on designing new rules for existing games.

Werner Güth, R. Wayne Schmittberger, Bernd Schwarze. There are many experimental studies of bargaining behavior, but suprisingly enough nearly no attempt has been made to investigate the so-called ultimatum bargaining behavior experimentally.

Reviews:
  • The Rollers of Vildar
In this book we see games we have played many times, and have (maybe) become bored with, revitalized with clever ideas, enhancements and suggestions from the author. As an example, consider the section on balancing non-symmetric games (such as Chess and Go which have an inbuilt first person advantage). Bidding, simultaneous playing of two games and the ingeneous "I'll make a move and then you decide whether to play black or white" idea where one player makes a move that the other player has to decide is bad or good are suggestions that are useful not just in the context given, but in the design and evaluation of all games. Recommended for anyone who enjoys, studies, reviews or designs games -- especially strategy games.
  • Shadowbourne
The book was better than I expected and it was only five cents! It took a little while to get here but I was happy with the purchase.
  • Djang
Aside from a monoply variation I didn't get much out of this. Most of the games I had never even heard of and I play a lot of games.
  • Bolanim
A great book. If you've struggled with classic games that are too slow, unbalanced, and otherwise flawed and less fun than you've like, this book is for you. A few hours of reading the lucid explanations of play variants and reviewing the clear diagrams of examples of play and you'll find those old games improved significantly.

The discussion of effective handicap design alone is worth the cover price. The text is also useful to get ideas on what new games in which you should consider investing. I'm mostly a German-style board game player but this book has me taking another look at classic board games. I highly recommend this out of print classic.

Wayne Schmittberger is a longtime associate of Games Magazine. It's a lot of fun to tinker with games to see how they change. The growth in Chess Variants is just one aspect of this. He explains those well, along with variants on Go, Risk, Monopoly, and many other games. He introduces many games you probably haven't seen before. All of them are great games, too! If you are considering designing a game of your own, or if you just have a collection of games, you need this book.
  • Maridor
This book is excellent. This book will open a gamer up to new possibilities and ideas. Lots of variants on common games like chess.
