Speaking of board game fun, why not make your own board game?
You can take an old Monopoly (or whatever!) board, and turn it into something of your own. Make your own rules, tape down new landing spaces…whatever you want.
If you don’t want to completely invent a new game, you can make your own Mancala set for really cheap.
I learned how to play this game in middle school, and it’s a fun two-player game.
Here’s a picture of a purchased game, complete with glass tokens.
You can make your own version using an old, clean egg carton and your own markers, such as pebbles, pennies, or other small bits.
