You’ll be able to discover who the best FIFA 18 player in the world is, the size of the biggest monster in Monster Hunter: World (clue: it’s really, really big), which Overwatch player has healed more players than any other and find out which eSports pro won more than $2.4 million in 2017 alone! We’ll also introduce you to some of the most amazing gamers on the planet. From Nathaniel “Nathie” de Jong, the world’s most popular VR-dedicated YouTuber, to Ray “Stallion83” Cox who has the world’s highest Xbox Gamerscore. And that’s not forgetting Joseph Garrett, Stampy Cat himself, who holds one of Minecraft’s strangest records ever – let’s just say cake is involved... Stampy Cat has also provided a special guest intro that you’ll only find in Gamer’s Edition 2019. Talk of Stampy Cat brings us speedily to our World Builders special chapter – a well-constructed celebration of the games that let us build, including Minecraft, LEGO® Worlds, Roblox, Terraria and more. You’ll have the chance to don your hard hat, too, by taking part in our Reader Challenges that could put your name in lights in next year’s Gamer’s Edition. So, whether you want to know what the fastest time to complete Dark Souls is (while upside down), see the planet’s biggest Game & Watch or find out which nation is the best at Pokémon, you’ve come to the right place!

The world’s most popular record book is back with thousands of new categories and newly broken records, covering everything from outer space to sporting greats via Instagram, fidget spinners and all manner of human marvels. Inside you’ll find hundreds of never-before-seen photographs and countless facts, figures, stats and trivia waiting for you on every action-packed page. Guinness World Records 2019 is the ultimate snapshot of our world today. Plus, this year we celebrate the incredible “Maker” movement with a special feature devoted to the inventors, dreamers, crafters and creators who devote their lives to amazing record-breaking projects such as the largest water pistol, a jet-powered go-kart and an elephant-sized hamburger (think you could eat a whole one!?). We take a sneak peek into their workshops to explore these epically big builds, and ask them what inspires them to go really, really large! And if you like creating, and you like LEGO®, then you’ll love our “Making History” pages that use the world’s most famous interlocking plastic bricks to illustrate and explain an important record-breaking object – such as the Statue of Liberty or the Apollo mission’s Saturn V rocket. We examine their designs, structure and technical specifications in fully illustrated and colorful, poster-style pages. Finally, you can jump into both the making and record-breaking action with a “Do Try This At Home” section. Challenge yourself and your family with five fun record-breaking maker-inspired records you can attempt involving origami, balloon sculptures, ring pulls and rubber bands. Who knows, your creation might just make it into the record books!

Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff is a whirlwind tour through the astounding, record-breaking world (and universe) around us, with an intro from TV science educator and author Science Bob. Packed with spectacular superlatives, shocking stats, fantastic facts and fun figures, Science & Stuff celebrates the simple joy in finding things out. It tackles the big questions that keep people up at night, such as: • Can you belch in space? • What does woolly mammoth taste like? • How much would the Death Star cost? • Is the answer to this question no? Join us as we rise from the depths of the ocean, home to vampire squids from hell, to the dizzy heights of the International Space Station, where scientists unravel the secrets of (pooping in) zero-g. On the way we stop to talk with some of the men and women who are out in the world finding answers and making stuff. Ever wanted to know what it’s like to ride a motorized toilet at highway speeds, command a swarm of tiny robots or spend a year in space? Well, you’ll find your answers in here. And that’s not all – have a go at ten record-breaking science experiments in the special Make & Break section. Our very own mad professor, Burnaby Q Orbax, and his trusty lab assistant Sweet Pepper Klopek, guide you through at-home challenges, from the greatest height to drop an egg without it breaking to the farthest distance by a Mentos and soda car. It’s gonna get messy! Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff – the grossest, smelliest, weirdest and noisiest guide to, well, science... and stuff.
