To play free Yahoo! games, register for a Yahoo! account, go to the games section, and click on the game you want to play. A computer is required. It will take between one to 10 minutes.

  1. Register for a Yahoo! account

    Go to the Yahoo! homepage. Roll over the Sign In link, and select Sign Up. Fill out the required information to create an account.

  2. Find the game

    Go to the Yahoo! Games section. Yahoo! categorizes the games based on genre, popularity, quality rating and how new the game is. Choose the type of game you want to play, and browse the games that are available. There is a search function if you know the game title already.

  3. Figure out the rules

    Certain games take you to the game screen right away and let you learn as you go. Hints and tutorials are provided. Others take you to a lounge where you find out the controls for the game and if it is single player or multiplayer. You can join a lounge or set up your own.

  4. Set up the game and begin playing

    Certain games require choosing a game identity. You can select a difficulty level and set the screen size.
