    Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is quite good

    Hi dg - if you do a search in these forums for good books to read, you will find thousands of threads on the topic. Hence the (pretty funny) response from robcarob. Meanwhile, maybe post a game of yours for us to peek at and get a sense of what you mean.

    Hi dg,
    I took a look at a couple of your games. I think a tactics book would help you more than the ones you mentioned. (Probably not as fun as Treasure Island, though.) Have fun.
