What an amazing book! The breadth of pub games described and the depth of detail given plus the excellent illustrations combine to make this a reference tome for the subject. Over 20 pub games are described, grouped into 4 categories, including their origins, history, regional variations and of course some of the pubs where the games are played. The pub context of the games is also discussed both historical and the contemporary situation; there's a chapter on lost pub games too and a useful bibliography. A fascinating volume both for the pub game player and the mere drinker.
