Dave is an 8th grader. He's got to do a book report for your class
on a famous novel. Instead of doing the typical boring speech, he
decides to find a game based on the book and use it to help
illustrate and explain the story by teaching and then playing the

the book from your choice of game.

Stephen claimed Euchre was over 200 years old
when guessing the connection between the two Back Shelf Spotlight
