Or what about charades, murder in the dark, I spy or hide and seek? Or made chatterboxes, those devices made from a square of paper that you flipped open between thumbs and forefingers with wishes and dreams under the flaps.This book has the lot. It may even wean you off the telly. Remember blind mans buff? What about conversations, in which players discuss a topic by starting each sentence with a consecutive letter of the alphabet? Great family fun. Sun HeraldWritten by two young mums, Parlour Games for Modern Families sets out to revive the tradition of indoor family games.This book is bursting with games of logic and memory, wordplay, card games, role-play, and rough and tumble. No game requires any equipment beyond a pack of cards, a dictionary, dice, paper, and pen. 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 to keep all the kids at a four-year-olds birthday party happy. Every family and every home needs a copy.
