Board games have been around for since the earliest days of history. There is archaeological evidence that even the Ancient Egyptians played Senet, an ancient version of a board game. The games we play today fall into a few different categories. There are those games that rely strictly upon luck. There are also those games that rely solely on strategy. Most of the board games we play today utilize both strategy and luck (whether it’s good or bad). It doesn’t matter how skillful you are at strategizing in a game the result can be altered, simply by the roll of the dice.
Board games carry with them elements of nostalgia as well because many of them we learned to play as children. Because of the nature of the games, however, they are enjoyable by all age groups and adults can take pleasure in many of the same games that they played back in their youth.
A great and unique way to recreate the fun and novelty of a board game is to dress up as one for Halloween. Many great renditions of popular games are available to recreate. Whether you want to be a more live action game board like Twister, or your inner real estate mogul side wants to dress up as a Monopoly board—a game theme is going to be a lot of nostalgic fun. Even the younger set can find a very sweet Candyland game costume as well. No matter what your game is, theses costumes make everyone a winner!
