Cameron Browne is a software engineer living in Brisbane, Australia. He has been an avid board game player for many years and developed a special interest in connection games after being introduced to Hex. His earlier book, Hex Strategy: Making the Right Connections, provided the impetus for this broader study of the connection game family.
" is a great book. Every page of Connection Games works well,
making it a classic work in an area that needed one. . . This would
be an excellent book for motivating a person to like mathematics.
-Ed Pegg Jr., Mathpuzzle.com, November 2004
book is an encyclopedic overview on connection games. I don't know anything which is nearly comparable. -Joerg Bewersdorff, Author of Luck, Logic, and White Lies, November 2004
""It's a fascinating book."" -Rezensionen, February 2005
Connection Games has become the definitive text on the subject, literally! -Wolfram Research, March 2005
new book written by Cameron Browne is absolutely a must for anybody interested in abstract strategy games."" -Ralf Gering, Abstract Games Magazine , March 2005
Of Interest to anyone intrigued by board games, this book provides an incredible summary of connection games and their related strategies... -Ned W. Schillow, Mathematics Teacher, December 2005
""This book by C. Browne is truly a masterpiece in an area in which such a thing was desperately needed and there is no doubt that it will become a classic. Moreover, it is likely to attract many people not only to connection games or strategy games, but, in general, to mathematics. What a blessing!"" -Newsletter of the European Mathematical Society , June 2006
""In his well organized book the author has collected the rules of about 200 such games, classifies them, and describes their history and what is known about them. This is not a mathematical book on game theory, but a valuable source of relevant information about ""real world"" games."" -SpringerWienNewYork - Monatshefte fuer Mathematik, May 2008"
