: As you probably know by now, Yahoo has decided to close down the existing classic parlour games. If you haven't seen the post yet, I have copied it below my name.
: Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to stop this, however they do have a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/yahoogames and many players are expressing their concerns.
: If anyone has any ideas or suggestions as to an alternate gaming site please let us know.

: For over 15 years, Yahoo has offered a set of classic multiplayer board and parlor games for you to enjoy. Yahoo Games deeply appreciates the passion and dedication you've shown in that time. Now, we'd like to invite you to play the next generation of Yahoo Parlor Games! •Cross-platform: The games will be available on tablets, smartphones, and the web. You’ll be able to take your games with you wherever you go
: •Better Gameplay: You can choose quick play to match up with a random stranger, you can invite your friends to a game, or you can join a tournament
: •In-app Purchases: You can purchase unlockables or power-ups with virtual currency, and some items for real money, like high-stakes pool tables and customizable card decks
: •Additional Features: ◦Sharp new look and design
: ◦Gain experience points and unlock new tables and levels
: ◦Track your progress through goals and achievements within each game
: ◦Multi-table action in Poker
: As we modernize and improve Yahoo Games, we recognize that the current Parlor Games do not provide the quality that our users deserve. As of March 31, 2014, we will close down the existing Parlor Games while we transition to a newer, better technology platform that will provide a better, more consistent experience.
: We will be posting more news and announcements over the next few weeks, so please like us on Facebook to keep up with the changes as they happen. Thank you for being a Yahoo Gamer. We hope you’re as excited as we are to take part in the future of Yahoo Games.
