"Our life is frittered away by details ...... Simplify, simplify, simplifyi! Those words are just as true today as when they were written in the 19th century by American writer and philosopher Henry David Thoreau. While he retreated to a cabin at Walden Pond to be all by himself, that‘s probably not a practical solution for most of us today. We all know that man is a social animal and needs to mix and mingle, share, love and care.
With the frantic pace and multiple tasks most of us face in juggling work and home responsibilities, we lose sight of what should make up our''real" life the people and activities that matter to us, and a sense of who we are as a unique individual.

There are different concepts of passing time and relaxing during get-togethers. Those were the days when parties meant sitting around in idle conversation, sometimes tearing known persons apart.

Whenever l have consented to attend a party or picnic, the portfolio of organizing and conducting games has invariably been entrusted on me, due to my compeering and organizing capacity. Many a timesI have been requested to organize games at the spur of the moment. TO satisfy myself with innovative ideas. I searched many a bookstore for fresh games, but to no avail. This prompted me to compile this book. Many of the games listed in this book are my own creation and all have been tried by me at some time or the other.
