Around the Block is a fun play manual.

It contains 55 timeless outdoor games together with illustrated step-by-step instructions, for kids of all ages – and that includes fully grown-up adult “kids”. It’s kind of a children’s game book for grown-ups and kids. Grown-ups remember the games they used to play and kids can thus learn the games from them.

Each card contains one game. It features a game “logo” on the front, step-by-step illustrations and instructions inside, plus tips and tricks and some more extra info on the back. The cards are not bound together so it’s easy to take them out and play.

Works great as a gift, as a way for parents and kids to bond or even as a mere pretext to reminisce with your friends about all the crazy stuff you used to do as kids.

Reviews of Around the Block

(mostly from friends, for now)

“Childhood in a box.” – Carmen, one of our first fans.

“This is basically my textbook for class.” – Ana, a friend who works as a non-formal educator for kids.

“You might no longer be up for Johnny-on-a-Pony at this time of your life but wouldn’t you still want to know the rules?” – Maria, a friend who writes for Esquire magazine.

“Oh yeah, I remember, we jump also, yeah!” – The receptionist at China’s stand at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016, remembering how she used to play Elastics as a kid (Elastics is ironically also called Chinese Jump Rope).

“OMFG, it turned out so much better than I expected!” – Alex, former work colleague.
