Free to Use and Reuse: Games for Fun and Relaxation

This sampler of games from the 18th to 21st centuries features card games, board games, and such outdoor games as penny pitching and jumping rope. You'll also find bingo, chess, hopscotch, marbles, and singing games. Sometimes, the picture is the game–a printed sheet of paper intended to be cut apart and played.
