about

Let Marion Paull take you on a rose-tinted journey through the world of the party game, beginning with Playtime Before Computers, when children played with toys such as humming tops, tin noisemakers, rocking horses, and more, many of which are still enjoyed today. In Playing Outside, find out the story behind Hopscotch, Tug o’ War, and Capture the Flag, all of which will make you want to run outside and return to your childhood. In Party Time, there are fun facts about Pass the Parcel, Blind Man’s Buff, Ring a Ring o’Roses, What’s the Time Mr Wolf? and more, and you can also learn the key ingredients of a great party game, one of which is the importance of getting everyone involved. While Parlor Games can be more sedate, these are excellent for exercising your general knowledge and quick thinking, with favorites such as I Spy and Charades, all profiled here. There is also a detailed section on boardgames, so many of which are still played today, such as Snakes and Ladders, Backgammon, and Chinese checkers. You will become a games aficionado with this handy treasure-trove of intriguing facts and stories.
