Russ Hudson - the company's Editor-in-Chief - stated that the completion of the book was truly an international effort;
"We had researchers from all over the world put these games together; including parts of our team from Nairobi, Israel, Australia, Canada, and of course right here at home in the US."
However, Rachel Clark, PR liason for the company, said that most of the games included in the book originated in the distant past; not the far-off present;
"A lot of the drinking games played today began in ancient Roman and Chinese societies, and then were modified by later civilizations. Our book discusses the history of drinking games in detail; it's fascinating really - even if you're not a drinker."
The book is available as a free download using a small form on the right-hand side of the website. But despite easy access to the book, Hudson cautions users;
"In order to get the book you must be of legal drinking age and agree to our responsible drinking disclaimer, which basically states that if you can't drink without causing problems or getting into trouble, then you shouldn't drink at all."
Clark - also the site's Safety Officer - added her own disclaimer with a smile, but it was clear that she wasn't joking;
"You don't have to play drinking games with alcohol. Use water. Juice. Hot sauce. Whatever it takes, just be safe, and enjoy the free book."
