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 stories and articles with links to publications here. Most of the stories are free to access, so feel free to peruse! "Fermi's Slime" recently appeared in Analog, in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue, an amusing look at the Fermi Paradox.


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