Liven up your next block party, barbeque or family reunion with yard games for guests of all ages and abilities. In need of some kid-friendly classics? Consider reimagined and redesigned games like tic-tac-toe in both giant and miniature forms. Oversized games are perfect for the yard, while miniature versions function indoors as both an optional activity and a lovely decorative item. Display on an accent table in the living room or as a centerpiece item on the coffee table. Classically civilized strategy games like chess, checkers and backgammon also work as beautiful little home accents—their recognizable boards and pieces are instantly comforting and nostalgic. Keep them in the sitting room or screened in porch for evening fun or rainy day play. Poker sets are also great to have around for nighttime gatherings or for when the kids aren't around. Instantly make anyone's house into a gaming hub with easily-portable travel sets. For warmer weather and sunnier seasons, build up a cache of more athletic yard games like croquet, badminton and bocce ball. For a couples' competition, look for two-on-two game sets. Four-player games are also great for kids, allowing them to customize teams and play. Some games, such as flag football and lacrosse-style catch, are suited well for a beach set-up but can work just as well in a grassy yard.
