Got a good book recommendation today. This is a new one called The Great Book of Domino Games by Jennifer Kelley. It's really the best book of domino rules that I've seen. It's got all of the classic games, and a lot of the new games out there, like Chickenfoot. It's also got the most solitaire domino games I've found anywhere. At the Amazon price of $5.56, this is a great deal if you're a programmer looking for a game.
Someday I'm gonna need to list all the books on my game-development library. A lot of people over the years have asked me "what's the best book about N?" Anyone interested in me putting up a list of the stuff that's made the grade over the years?
Warning: a lot of this stuff, especially the game rules compendia, are out of print. You're gonna need to really do some hiking to find all of it.
Finally, I have an addendum to my mention of the game Raj the other day. I went by my local MacFrugal's store, and they've still got about 20 copies of the game for $4 each. If you're interested in getting a copy for yourself and you don't have a MacFrugal's nearby, lemme know and we'll work it out. Personally, I intend to buy several copies as gifts.
