Ways to reuse Board Games!

While cleaning you may have realised how many board games you have. Often, board games are passed down through generations and you can end up with piles of them that are either unused or overplayed.

But, don’t worry there are a surprising number of options for unwanted board games. Some of the best options are –

  • Donate your games to charity

An excellent option for your unwanted board games is to donate them to charity or NGOs. Even though you may not enjoy a board game anymore, it could bring hours of fun and smile to someone else.

  • Create a Journal/Book cover

As a board game board is often quite solid, it would make a great and unique cover for a journal. All you have to do is cut the board to fit the size of the journal and then bind it together to make it a hard solid cover for your journal with those quirky colours and patterns.

  • Create a Display

Board games often have eye-catching and abstract designs, which would make a great piece of wall art. If you completely flatten out your board game and find a frame to fit its size, you can combine the two to create a quirky piece of art. These can add a piece of unusual art and a splash of colour to your home while reducing the mess.

  • Make Scrabble tile jewellery

If you’re a fan of unique jewellery, your old scrabble pieces will make a great new necklace or a set of new earrings. You just need to paint your Scrabble tile in the desired colour and add your individual design to it. Once you’ve done this and your paint has dried, you can add silver accessories (earring wires or silver necklace bails) that turn your game pieces into jewellery.
