How to start playing
The most popular Yahoo! Games are categorized on Yahoo! Games. To find all other games, just click All Games in the category you're interested in, or click All Games List at the bottom of the Yahoo! Games page. Then just click on the name of the game you'd like to play.
For some of the games (like Jewel Quest and Zuma), you'll be taken directly to the game screen, where you can play the game.
For other games (like Pool and Spades), you'll be taken to the game's ante room (where you'll find the list of lounges). From this ante room, select a gaming lounge based on your level of play (social, intermediate, or advanced).
Once in a lounge, you can get information about:
- Tthe specific rules of the game
- select your screen size
- Choose the identity you want to play under.
After entering a gaming room, you can either:
- Join a table in progress - Click Play Now to automatically go to a table with an open seat.
- Create your own table - You can also create a table by clicking the Create Table button. You then become the host and you have the option of inviting other players to the table using the Invite button.
- Watch a game in progress - To watch a game, click Watch next to an active game.
Note: Bingo is slightly different. As usual, click Join In to join a table. However unlike other games, you cannot create or host your own Bingo table.
