Guinness Games and Quiz Books

The fun side of Guinness Superlatives was evident from the very early days of the company. Over the years, a number of quiz books and game books were published, always with an educational, fun element. This page highlights some of these editions; others can be found in other parts of our website. As always, we believe that the attention to detail in these books makes them a great read and well worth collecting!
