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, stories you can find at the following fine publications;

"Gifted", at Acidic Fiction. This is some gruesome horror, so be forewarned.
"Cradle", "Surface", "On Disposing of a Corpse" and "The Last Necromancer" at Daily Science Fiction. (search string "Jolly")
"Paper Man" at Fox and Raven. Robots, games, and the mysteries of AI.This might no longer be available on Amazon.
"Pulse" at Something Wicked. Science fiction horror. Some of it's pretty gross.
"Dead Party" in the Romantic Ruckus anthology, from Strange Musings Press. Tongue-in-cheek zombie humor/horror.
If you like reading blog entries, you can entertain yourself with musings about game design and marketing at The League of Gamemakers. Or you can irritate yourself with his controversial comments about politics, religion, and science,at his other blog. Enjoy!
