Board Game Ideas and Fun for Your Porch

Porch games. As a kid,I remember playing tag (the porch steps were home base), fort, and many other outdoor games where our porch was an integral part of our good times. We have board game ideas and other fun yard game ideas for making memories with your family at home.

"You will never regret having fun playing games on your front porch."

Nothing like an old-fashioned game of checkers


My Mom and Dad would sit on our porch and watch the neighborhood kids play in the yard. I also remember reading and coloring on our porch swing.

"Porches are a relaxing place to read a novel or the morning newspaper. Our grandchildren like to play with legos® and super heroes on their porch. Just imagine the nice memories they are making."

Today, kids and many adults often prefer playing video games in front of a large flat screen TV, but there's still nothing that can replace the social interaction you get with a board game.

Here are some family board game ideas. We know that many of these games can now be played using technology but there's something to be said for sitting down and playing with someone else.

Many of these porch games will one day become antiques. So, if you still have a monopoly game board, save it. You will one day show it to your grandchildren and it will be a real novelty.
