Overview

Opening the door to the fun-filled frolics and cerebral sports of yesteryear, Parlor Games presents more than 150 games, puzzles, and activities that will turn any gathering into a festival of laughter and delight. From old favorites like Twenty Questions, Charades, and Blind Man’s Bluff to less familiar amusements (including such intriguingly named gems as My Lady’s Toilet, The Leg of Mutton, and the One-Yard Dash), the pastimes of gentler times come to life again in this charming and beautifully designed anthology. An indispensable resource for hosts and hostesses looking for novel cocktail-hour or after-dinner entertainment and for moms and dads looking for original and engaging activities for birthday parties or rainy afternoons, Parlor Games provides complete instructions for intellectually challenging paper-and-pencil and memory games as well as such exciting indoor athletic competitions as the Bun Race. Wrapped in an antique-looking cover and written in turn-of-the-century language, Parlor Games has the nostalgic appeal of a book discovered in grand-mother’s attic. But it offers today’s generation the opportunity to experience a world rich in unexpected adventures and pleasures.
