Unplug and play with family games from Todd & Moore

classic-bocce-ball-set-50103-red-gridGoogle “family game night” and you’ll see a ton of suggestions for board games that all ages can enjoy. Now that the weather’s nice, it’s time to take it outdoors and unplug and play family games from Todd & Moore.

Backyard games are a great way to bring together generations. They’re wonderful diversions while barbecue guests are waiting on the grill master to finish, and they’re a fantastic opportunity to burn off some calories after the cookout.

We carry all the traditional backyard games.  Some, such as volleyball, fit best with energetic, athletic crowds. Others, such as horse shoes, appeal to all ages and are a great chance for everyone from grandparents to preschoolers to get together and play. Frisbee also is fantastic fun for all ages, and nothing much is required other than a single disc and space.

Family games for year-round fun

Don’t pack the games away in the garage once summer is over either. You’ll find many reasons to turn to these classic games year-round, from bocce ball at a baby shower honoring both parents to cornhole during a tailgate at Williams-Brice Stadium. Fold-N-Go 10 Cup, a portable version of Beer Pong that you can play with any beverage, also is great for pre-game fun.

A croquet set can easily be converted for an Alice in Wonderland party. Simply affix plastic flamingos to the mallets and you’ve created fun entertainment plus instant decor.

Kan Jam, which consists of throwing a flying disc two targets, is the ultimate weapon for batting the “Mommy, I’m bored!” syndrome. The game is becoming popular in schools, in part because it teaches teamwork as it gets kids moving.

This week, fun family games are even more affordable at Todd & Moore. Through July 10, you’ll get an additional 10 percent off any game in stock, so stop in and check it out. Our staff can help you with pointers so you can find the perfect game to fit your backyard, your party or your family.
