Synopsis

"These are the basic rules and strategies for 19 simple games that were popular during the time of the American War for Independence (1775-1783). These are the games that colonial men, women, boys and girls of all social classes played in taverns and inns, on board ships, in military camps and at home.

Ideas and instructions for creating your own game pieces and game boards are included, but most of the games can be played using any pack of standard playing cards or a pair of regular dice"
