THE GAMER’S BOOKSHELF:
HOW TO HOST A GAME NIGHT
by Erik Arneson
(Tiller Press, softcover, 171 pages, $15.99)
Games are an interactive medium. Most of the time, to get those cherished games off the shelf and onto the gaming table, you need someone to play them with you! So having folks over to play them sounds obvious but… hosting a Game Night is demanding in ways that someone who has never done it would, I suspect, find surprising. How to avoid pitfalls, how to maneuver the “mine field” of potential problems, how to set yourself up for success are challenges that Erik Arneson, a recognized games expert, has taken up in his new book: How to Host a Game Night.
