Journey to Gameland: How to Make a Board Game from Your Favorite Children's Book

Journey to Gameland: How to Make a Board Game from Your Favorite Children's BookJourney to Gameland: How to Make a Board Game from Your Favorite Children's Book by Ben Buchanan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great book. It is all you need to know for a child to make a board game out of their favorite books. The author's son wrote his own book after he finished reading the Harry Potter series. He made his game to resemble Trivial Pursuit, but this book gives even more suggestions. If a child has old board games they never play, they can easily be converted to a game they will love. I'm planning to stop at yard sales and the Goodwill to see if I can pick up some. Best of all, the instructions are for the child to make the game with little help from adults.
