Parlour games were always played indoors, and during the Victorian era were extremely popular among the upper and middle classes. They were usually played in a parlour hence the name. One of the easiest parlour games is the game of Consequences, so here’s how to play this fun game.

How To Play Consequences

You will need

  • Paper
  • 1 or more pens

How To Play

Take a long sheet of paper and fold it in half and then in half again as many times as the paper will allow.

The first person starts by writing the first line of the story on the first section and then folds it back so the 2nd person can’t see.

Take it in turns to write the next part of the story.

You can follow a structure e.g.
1. An adjective and a man’s name
2. An adjective and a woman’s name
3. Where they met
4. What he said to her
5. What she said to him
6. What happened next
7. What the consequence was
8. What the world said

or make your own story up! Be as funny and creative as you can!
