Synopsis

String Games by Richard Darsie

Everyone loves Cat's Cradle, but there are many other string games that are fun to play, by yourself or with friends. These games come from different places and cultures from around the world - as you learn how to make the looping patterns, you will also find out some of the ethnic stories and tribal origins behind them. With so many great String Games, you will always have some something fun to do: start with very simple games, and then teach them to your friends; graduate to games that are a little more complicated; several of the games require two people to complete them; other creations are three-dimensional and provide mystifying tricks; and developing dexterity skills with String Games builds confidence, inspires imagination and initiates you into a long and proud tradition. This work comes in full colour throughout with over 200 colour photographs and step-by-step drawings.
