7 Ways to Tweak Your Old Board Games to Have Fun with Friends ...


When you have nothing to do with your friends or relatives, there are ways to tweak old board games to make them more exciting.

You're no longer a kid, so the things that used to interest you aren't as thrilling anymore.

However, with a few adjustments, your old games will feel brand new.2

Here are some ways to tweak old board games so that you don't have to toss them out:

1. Jenga


Sit down with your friends and write down some silly actions on each block.

When you play the game and pull out a piece, you'll have to do whatever it tells you to do.2

Make sure that you write down things that will keep the game fun so that you don't lose interest.

This is one of the best ways to tweak old board games, because thinking of ideas for each block will be as entertaining as actually playing the new game is.

2. Guess Who?

Guess Who?

Find pictures of your relatives, classmates, or favorite celebrities.

Now print them all out and tape them to your old board game.2

Now you can take guesses about people that you know instead of the fake characters that came with the game.

It's a fun way to spice up something that you used to love playing.

3. Clue


This one takes a little bit of work, but it'll be worth it.

Create your own cards so that instead of finding Mrs.

Peacock in the ballroom with a candlestick, you'll be able to find your best friend in your homeroom with a ruler.

Pick whatever weapons, character, and rooms that you'd like.

It's all up to you.

4. Scrabble


You don't have to alter this board game at all--you just have to change the rules a bit.

Create a category that you have to follow, like names of friends that you have.

Or every time you place down a word, you have to create a story about it.

It's a great way to show your creative side.
