Welcome to FunandGames.org a free online archive of games and activities since 1999.

There are literally hundreds of games and activities, with more being added on a regular basis. Feel free to browse what’s there or if you are looking for a specific game or activity use the search, categories or tags.

A hint about navigation

All games and activities are categorised and tagged. UK English spelling is used as the main language throughout the site. ‘Search’ will also search categories, tags as well as any text within the posts. We can’t promise every game has all possible tags or categories so if something is missing contact us to suggest an edit.
