VINTAGE PARTY GAMES


VINTAGE PARTY GAMES

MARION PAULL    Book Number: 88845    Product format: Hardback

We have never before seen a book that incorporates a satin pagemarker with a gift tag on the end To... From... as in this very stylish American import. It is a rose-tinted journey through the world of party games when children played with humming tops, tin noise makers and rocking horses. Find the full story behind Hopscotch, Tug-o'-War and Leapfrog, fun facts about Pass the Parcel, Blind Man's Bluff, Ring-a-Ring-o'-Roses, What's the Time Mr Wolf, Musical Chairs and Guessing Games. There's a detailed section on board games such as Snakes and Ladders, Backgammon and Chinese Checkers and the book is bursting with vintage illustrations, stories and trivia, modern photographs and colour artwork to revive little known games and forgotten classics. And the retro fun is not confined to indoors because there are outdoor amusements, chasing and ball games. Enjoy this long winter old-fashioned party and parlour games with words and consequences, card games, jokes and even remember how to play dominoes and backgammon. 144 colourful pages.
