1920s Party Games Night - Ages 18 & Up - March 31

1920s Party Games Night
Friday, March 31, 7 to 10 p.m.

Recommended for ages 18 and up

The 1920s found an increasing number of people with more leisure time on their hands. Popular parlour games and newly available board games served to provide groups of friends and family with hours of home entertainment.

These amusements often involved games of logic, word play, creativity and just plain silliness, requiring equipment that could commonly be found around the house.

Join museum staff to learn, and try your hand at, an assortment of classic games including "Throwing the Smile," "Consequences," "The Talking Board," "Spoons," and more! Following the fun and games, enjoy period inspired refreshments and a walk through Spadina Museum.

$25 plus tax
Pre-registration required.
