Never a Dull Moment Summary

Never a Dull Moment: Parlour Games for Young and Old by Sarah Baker

Packed with more than 200 ingenious games and entertainments, Never a Dull Moment will take you back to a time before computers and television, when families devised innovative ways to entertain each other. All you need is your imagination, a spirit of fun and a few practical items that you might find in your 'parlour' pens and paper, a dictionary, a box of matches and some candles. Some parlour games give you the chance to show off your wit and learning, while others are frivolous frippery. All the games are delightful entertainment for all ages. Try your hand at games of word play, logic or memory; mount a theatrical evening with clever games of charades; or simply catch each other out with guessing games and games of speed and agility, both mental and physical. With references to famous works of literature as well as fascinating historical background on the origins of some games, Never a Dull Moment will provide hours of fun for the whole family.
