Essential books about game design & gaming concepts - EPISODE VI

I recently purchased the great book "EUROGAMES: The Design, Culture and Play of Modern European Board Games". EUROGAMES examines the form of eurogames, the hobbyist culture that surrounds them, and the way that hobbyists experience the play of such games. It chronicles the evolution of tabletop hobby gaming and explores why hobbyists play them, how players balance competitive play with the demands of an intimate social gathering, and to what extent the social context of the game encounter shapes the playing experience. Combining history, cultural studies, leisure studies, ludology, and play theory, this innovative work highlights a popular alternative trend in the gaming community.

It's very easy to read and it's not a theoretical book. Strongly recommended to board games fans.
