"The book is written in a clear style and also 'tells a story.' Seville has put the game into its historical context and has given us the best insight into the subject including the latest facts. Not only will 'game-buffs' love the book but also as a 'picture book' it is well worth thumbing through its pages. As well, people interested in 'cultural heritage' will find a lot of fascinating facts. Well worth as a reference-book in your library!"

"It is difficult to do justice to the scope and depth of Seville’s study in a short review such as this, but it offers much useful material, providing en passant, for example, comments on reference material such as books, library and museum collections and digital resources. Some of the sources Seville surveys may already be familiar to those who regularly consult standard reference sources, research library catalogues and national collections, but it is a testament to Seville’s scholarship that the reader is alerted to so broad a range of primary and secondary reference material to follow up for deeper study."

"The Cultural Legacy of the Royal Game of the Goose gives us a rare glimpse into the history of a game and into the complex and extensive knowledge
necessary for its understanding. [...] The resulting treasure trove of information explains and illustrates in great detail the wide-ranging interests to which the Game of the Goose now contributes."
