Reviews and Testimonials for Best New Games

“BEST NEW GAMES” by Dale N. Le Fevre is a terrific book! The pictures in the book show all ages playing this game. Le Fevre truly believes in the magic created when people of all ages get together to play. The game is never as important as the joy participants gather from playing together. In these games no one is excluded to make the game better. In fact, it seems, the more the merrier.

Very creative and practical for a wide range of ages. …I think it will come in useful for parties and group children’s activities.

Best New Games has a number of significant strengths. Having taught adventure-type games for some time, I value this book for the new and interesting games… For novice physical educators, this book would be a useful acquisition.
