Welcome to the parlor and party game page!

It used to be that no household was complete without a parlor room. What’s a parlor you ask? Why, nothing more than a place to play games! But there’s much more to this page than the title. If you can play it with paper and pencil, you will find the rules for it here. If it’s a word game you can play on the go, you will find the rules for it here. Even casino games can be found here (yes, some people used to have mini-casinos in their parlor). Some games are simple, some are a bit of a challenge…all of them are fun.

Sometimes, the best games are the ones that require a huge number of participants. Some of the games found here are popular new gems involving a race against the hourglass…others are old classics that require nothing more than your own body. Need some good activities to keep your party-goers entertained? You’ll find tons of ideas here.
