GIOCHI DA TAVOLO SPECIFICI
Questa sezione del catalogo comprende tutti i libri di giochi che dispongono di titoli dedicati, omettendo soltanto quelli che dispongono di una sezione propria più idonea. Precedentemente questa sezione separava i giochi tradizionali da quelli proprietari ma, poichè la distinzione si sta perdendo nel tempo (v. Reversi/Othello, Halma, ecc.), è parso più utile inserirli tutti qui.
