Family Education Program: Victorian Family Parlor Games – Parents & Teens

LHF instructor explains parlor game rules to participants


Saturday, November 11
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Advanced registrations required.

Victorian Games for Fun and Amusement: or how to entertain your family when the power goes out! Is company coming? How do you entertain a room full of people without the benefit of video games or an iPad? Explore the 19th century games that kept adults and children laughing and amused on a rainy afternoon or after a holiday dinner. Guests will play “serious” games, movement games, and guessing games in the Victorian parlor, suitable for adults and children. They will also learn a Victorian card game, try out Victorian puzzles, and explore some early board games. Take home a booklet with game rules along with a Victorian game. You’ll enjoy a party snack and punch, and take home the recipe too.
