101 Family Vacation Games
About the Author
Shando Varda is a lifelong game-player who has taught and researched games for the last twenty years. In particular he has studied play in families and its many essential and enriching qualities. As part of his research process, he has played with babies, children, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens. From this rich and enjoyable experience, he has come to see the role and value game playing brings to our everyday lives— whatever people’s age. He has two daughters and lives in Bristol, England.
