Traditional board games labeled “bored” games by your family? Bet your family will change their tune when you take tradition to a new level with oversize games for the backyard. Nothing boring about games with giant pieces requiring two arms to move.
Oversize games do require larger space making the backyard a perfect place for set up and play. Every family member, from youngest to oldest, can enjoy giant games. Little ones can move pieces (sometimes a little more helpful than you really need) while older members help with strategies.
If you so choose, games can have elaborate boards and game pieces like the Chess set shown above. Others can be created from simple landscaping materials or found objects like one of these……
Whether you are a master woodworker creating heirloom chess pieces, a landscaper deluxe, or a dumpster diver who brings home the perfect pieces for oversize games, family fun will abound as you gather to play.
