Folding Board Games

These three games cover all the bases when it comes to simple entertainment for friends and family members of all ages.

Whether you enjoy a classic game of checkers, old-school cribbage, or maybe an exotic romp with mancala, these three games will delight the family with hours of offline entertainment. They’re all great for road trips as well. This is because all the parts to play each game are stored away in between the boards. Designing the games to fold up employed a piece of hardware that’s not used every day. It’s called a barrel hinge and we’ll show you how to install them. That way, when the game is open in playing mode, things keep moving smoothly across the game surface. In addition, an innovative router jig allows you to make recesses to contain all playing pieces within each board.
