A beautiful blast from the past

I could go on for hours on how I loved this book's awesome contents, great interviews and gorgeous illustrations, but above all it contains tons of fond memories of so many games I played and enjoyed when I was young. This may sound corny but I think I'll read this book again with my kids when they're older so they can finally understand some of my more obscure dad jokes.
