Board games and parlour games - rediscover classics again and again!

Certain board games have been played for a long time and can still be found in game collections today. There are numerous variants of parlour games:

  • classic board games with a wooden or cardboard board and figures for several or two players
  • numerous card games for two or more players
  • Games in which the emphasis is on adventure and the players have to collect things, fight against each other or others and thus achieve a goal.
  • Board games with a classic game board and increasingly also those in which the parts of the game are variable and thus new game variants are possible again and again.

They are usually based on a predefined set of rules, which makes them rule-based games. This makes board games suitable for children from about 4 years of age. The classics among board games are structured in such a way that the whole family can enjoy playing them. Educational games form another category among board games. Lively game evenings as a tradition are remembered for a long time!

Pedagogues are often involved in the development of children's games. The fishing game is certainly one of the most popular children's games. In a colourful display, there are fish that can be caught with the help of a magnet. Even very young children enjoy this first game and can slowly immerse themselves in the world of parlour games through the simple rules of the game.

Sagaland is also a wonderful, fairytale-like board game for the whole family. In this board game, each player secretly sets out on a search, wary of rivals and with a little luck on the dice. The aim is always to rush to the castle as quickly as possible to answer the king's questions about the hiding place correctly. The winner is the first to name three locations correctly.

A very versatile game in which puzzle, board game and dice game meet is the forest shadow game. This parlour game is suitable for children from 5 years and is a very atmospheric family game. Especially in the darker half of the year, game evenings become a magical experience. The game board is a 6-piece puzzle and beautifully designed. The game figures, little wooden dwarfs with felt pointed caps as well as small and large wooden trees make this game a particularly fairytale adventure. In the enchanted forest, the little dwarfs search for each other and have to hide from the light.

Of course, we also have the classic game collection on offer, as well as the classic and popular parlour games The Crazy Maze, Scotland Yard, Catch the Hat and Backgammon.

Das Spiel Tac ist ein ganz neuer Spiele-Klassiker für 2 bis 4 Personen. Es vereint Brett, Karten und Murmeln in einem Spiel? Das zeitlose Strategiespiel erfordert gleichermaßen Teamgeist und geschicktes Taktieren. Hinzu kommen spannende Zufallsmomente, die jeden Spielverlauf einzigartig machen. Das Gesellschaftsspiel ist sehr edel hergestellt. Das kunstvoll verzierte Brett und die hochwertigen Spielkarten orientieren sich an der grafischen Urform, der „Blume des Lebens“. Das TAC Spiel besteht vorwiegend aus natürlichen Materialien. Das TAC Spiel hat seinen Ursprung im indischen Chaupar bzw. Pachisi, welches sich im 4. Jahrhundert als eine Modifikation des koreanischen Spiels Yut entwickelte. Chaupar ist die höfische Form des Spiels und unterscheidet sich von Pachisi durch kompliziertere Regeln. Nachdem das Spiel durch die Engländer im 19. Jh. nach England gebracht wurde, verbreitete es sich von dort in vielfältigen Abwandlungen in Europa und Amerika. Zu den bekanntesten Varianten zählen Mensch är
