The Best of the Best DIY Board Games

As is the case most years, this winter we found ourselves on a big board game kick. I can’t tell you the number of games of cards and Monopoly and Scrabble that have gone down since it first got cold last fall. Because winter seems to refuse to give up, our weekend afternoons  of hanging indoors playing games has continued well into what is allegedly spring. This past weekend there was a Monopoly throwdown of near epic proportions. All of this likely explains why I’m just in love with DIY board games at the moment. I love that these DIY versions can be customized in pretty colors that suit your personal taste and also provide you with another afternoon of fun as you craft, paint and create something really awesome for your board game collection. Here are my favorites, what I’m deeming the best of the best. Have you seen any others that you love? I want to make all the board game things!
