About 24/7 Games
We have a passion for helping people find joy and connection through fun, free, classic games that are always there when you need them. It’s why we exist. We’re your loyal friend who’s always there when you have some unexpected downtime or need to escape.
At 24/7 Games we make it easy to play classic games anywhere, anytime, and on any device with anyone on the planet. One click, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We envision a future where our games are played by and made accessible to ALL humans, regardless of means or circumstance. Sound ambitious? Not to us. We believe entertainment is a human right and want everyone to have the ability to experience our universal love of playing games with no strings attached.
How We Started
In 2007, bored at his desk job and craving some intellectual stimulation, John Battagline, our founder and CEO, decided to develop an online game for him and his co-workers to play. Inspired by the bond created when playing cards with his grandmother, John developed an online version of Solitaire, a classic game he knew would be a hit. From there, 24/7 Games was born.
In 2010, 24/7 Games got promoted from “side hustle” to a full-blown online games company. With an expanded team of expert designers, coders and genuinely good humans, we’ve spent over a decade making classic online games available to the masses. We’ve enabled countless cross-country games of Checkers between grandparents and their grandchildren, thousands of spirited Chess games between friends during short bursts of downtime, and provided hours of entertainment with solo skills games like Sudoku and Solitaire, to help sharpen the cognitive skills of the young, elderly and persons with disabilities. It doesn’t matter what tech you have - whether it’s a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer, our games are there for you. We’re your old, reliable friend who’s always ready to play, 24/7.
With the ultimate vision of making ALL of our games accessible on ALL devices with just a click of a button or touch of a screen, 24/7 Games is creating connection and serving up the right to entertainment for ALL humans.
