Book Of Surrealist Games
Game playing was a primary creative method of the surealists, whose methods shocked their peers in the early part of this century and whose work is still held in awe today. This work provides language games, alternative card games, "Dream Lotto", automatic techniques for making poems, stories, collages and photo-montages to re-create the surrealist creativity. The games may also be used to delve into the collective unconscious in much the same ways as the original surrealists did at the start of the movement.
