Are you looking for an interesting way to entertain guests at a party? Are you worried about your kids getting bored this summer? SOLUTION! Vintage board games. Most vintage games are as quirky as they are fun. I mean, who wouldn’t love to play a Alfred Hitchcock board game (yes! It’s true! This exists! Look at the bottom board game in the stack below) at your next party!? It is probably so bad that its good!
Classics like Operation, Chutes and Ladders, and Life are great for delaying Summer boredom with kids. Its so much more fun for everyone involved to sit down to a board game than to watch reruns of what ever show or movie your kid is obsessed with right now (I’m so sorry that I made you watch Barbies Ski Trip with me one hundred times Mom!). You can sit back and enjoy just how quaint you and the youngster look playing a vintage game together. Its like a modern/retro Norman Rockwell! I can’t get over it! It’s so cute!
Another use for board games, other than just playing them, is decorating with them! What can’t you decorate with these days? There are actually a lot of great sites with ideas for decorating with board games and their pieces. There are even entire boards on pinterest dedicated to this one specific decorating idea. Of what I found, this blog had some really great ideas!
