First Paragraph:

How Games Move Us is the latest addition to MIT’s Playful Thinking series, a collec-tion of compact, interdisciplinary books designed not for a specialist audience but rather for the generally curious. In the words of the series editors, the Playful Thinking line of books is “for any reader interested in playing more thoughtfully or thinking more playfully” (p. ix).
