Parlour Games for Modern FamiliesBook - 2009
Summary: "Parlour Games for Modern Families sets out to revive the tradition of indoor family games: push aside the consoles, turn off the telly, and bring some mental stimulation, silliness and laughter, joy and connection back into your living room. This book is bursting with games of logic and memory, wordplay, card games, role-play, and rough and tumble. Not a single game requires equipment that you won̐ưt find in your average home: a pack of cards, a dictionary, an hourglass, dice, paper, and pen. You can play to your heart's content without wasting a single natural resource. Games are organised thematically and referenced for age-appropriateness. All are set out with clear rules and instructions. There are games that will challenge and stimulate you, and games that will have you in fits; games that can last all night, and games to fill that empty half-hour before tea; games for adults and older children, and games for your four-year-old's birthday party."--Publisher descriptio
