Guinness World Records 2010 Gamers' Edition James May seems to have been breaking an inordinate number of world records of late with his Toy Stories TV series. But it's not just overpaid TV presenters who get to claim the glory: hundreds of volunteers made his Meccano, Scalextric and Hornby dreams come true.

In fact, Guinness World Records are really the domain of give-it-a-go heroes and heroines, as the entries in the Gamers' Edition of the popular annual proves.

As ever, it recognises the most popular games and characters. However, it also champions the fans who collectively dressed up and then met up to show their love for their favourite characters and acknowledges the committed collector who owns the world's biggest collection of Pokemon cards.

The trivia-packed annual costs £14.99 from all good bookstores.
