Board-Game Rotation

This is an excellent way to have family members play board games without getting board.

Equipment: different two-player board games

How to play:

Set up different two-player board games around the dining room table. Have everyone take a seat so that each game has only two players.

The games begin and end at the command of the timekeeper (about 5 minutes).  The players then rotate to the right so each person moves to a different game with a different opponent.

The games, however, are not reset, but the new players just take over where the last players left off.  So a person might move from a winning Checkers games to a losing position in Yahtzee.

Modifier:

If there are an uneven number of players, have one sit out and keep time.  Once the time is up, they rotate in, while one member rotates out to keep time.
