The Book that Started this Site.

Robert Charles Bell (1917–2002) was the author of several books on board games, most importantly Board and Table Games 1 & 2 (reprinted as Board and Table Games from Many Civilizations). This work won the Premier Award of the Doctors’ Hobbies Exhibition, London. He was instrumental in popularizing traditional games, and is acknowledged as one of 11 “principal sources” in David Parlett’s The Oxford History of Board Games.[2]
