All the fun of active sports -- without the hurt of losing The idea behind this book is simple: people should play together, not against each other. To show you how enjoyable (and challenging) that,can be, Terry Orlick has created and collected over one hundred brand-new games based on cooperation, not competition, with the perfect one for every occasion. Who can play? People of every size, shape, age, and ability, from preschoolers to senior citizens. Where can you play? In the gym, on the beach, in the swimming pool, around the playground, in the classroom, in your backyard, or even in your own living room. What do you need? Nothing fancier than a ball, a mat, or a net -- and an active imagination. What kinds of games are there? -- Completely original ones like Sticky Popcorn, Bump and Scoot, Double Bubble, Big Snake, Fish Gobbler, and Collective Beach-blanketball. -- Familiar ones like Musical Chairs and even football and hockey recycled into fun-for-all adventures. -- Games from the Arctic, New Guinea, and the People's Republic of China. -- Plus ideas for making up a whole new set of games on your own. Games nobody loses means no more disappointed players sitting on a bench or out in the first round of play -- because taking the competition out leaves more room for fun for everybody!
