For the finale of season 3 of Bush's Board Game Thing Andy, Brian, and Elouise are sharing the best games to play in a field, pub garden, or anywhere outdoors you can think of for a good gaming sesh. Do not fear, while this is the last episode for a few weeks, the gang will be back at the end of summer for season 4! We can't wait! Without further ado here are some of the best games featured in this episode!
Dobble....like you've never seen it before! The same anticipation, exhilaration, and dobbledation, but on a much larger scale. Instead of regular-sized cards you slam down on a table tin an attempt to match one image to another, these tiles are big enough for you to hop on, lucky because that's exactly what you will be doing! Dobble XXL requires players to hop onto the matching images making it the perfect game to play outdoors, alongside the fact no one can tell you to be quiet when your crying Dobble! in victory or hollering loudly with frustration.
Pass the Pigs comes in an easy, travel-sized case, perfect for on-the-go gaming, especially outdoors! In addition to this, you need space for this pig tossing game as the pink miniatures can shoot and fire in all directions!
For more outdoor fun, check out Giant Pass the Pigs. Rather than little figurines, these pigs are big, inflatable, and need a lot of room to be thrown without hitting a lamp or TV! They are perfect to use in a pool too!
Think air hockey meets ping pong...and add magnets! The aim of the Klask game is to score points using magnets under the game table. However, there are many ways you can score these precious points. One is scoring the ball into their goal, another is your opponent scoring an own goal. Another way you can earn points is by two of the magnetic obstacles sticking to your opponent's piece and finally, your opponent losing their piece on your side of the board.
Klask is a magnetic dexterity game. Rounds can be quick, but the game will give you hours of fun!
So Long for the Summer
That's Bush's Board Game Thing Episode 38 and season 3 all wrapped up! We wish you farewell for now, but will be back in a few short weeks with a whole lotta new games for you to try!
