Welcome to Jolly Games. We produce and sell puzzles, board games and card games designed or codesigned by Tom Jolly. We will continue to design games as long as people enjoy them! And probably long after that.


In addition to designing Games, Tom Jolly also writes SF and fantasy, along with a few articles on games and puzzles. You can find a list of his latest stories and articles with links to publications here. Most of the stories are free to access, so feel free to peruse! His first novel, "An Unusual Practice," is now available at Amazon.

The Wiz-War license has been picked up by Steve Jackson Games as of Sept. 2019 and will no longer be produced by Fantasy Flight Games. Look for the new version sometime in 2020.

Battle for Rokugan, designed with Molly Glover, is now available! Look for it in your local game stores.

Our new math game Got It! is out and available from us, by mail only.

We continue to take PayPal, but do not take credit cards. Paypal, checks and money orders are preferred. See Ordering Info.
