BOOK REVIEW: Playfair: Everybody’s Guide to Noncompetitive Play


Playfair: Everybody’s Guide to Noncompetitive Play, Matt Weinstein

For those of you who remember “New Games,” you will see a LOT of similarity here! Including the fact that they both appear to be out-of-print. This is an awesome book for all ages, including adults. Probably not very useful with preschoolers, but you may be able to adjust some of the games for them if you are real creative! Noncompetitive play, for some reason, is seen as an alternative way to do things…but this book talks about how it really is better in many settings, particularly with children. An all-around feeling of positiveness and group togetherness is accomplished through these games! And I guarantee there won’t be anyone not laughing their pants off! Some of these would be terrific at staff meetings to help with team-building!
