What A Fun Family Game

by

We waited for a month for this game and it was well worth the wait! The board is quite beautiful and the rules are very easy to learn. We played with 8 players and, boy, did we have a ball. You'll need your own chips so be sure you have them in hand when your game arrives. I guarantee you'll want to play right away!More > < Less

Surprise Hit!

by

I purchased this for my grandsons age 7 and 10 as an add-on quiet activity gift. In 2 days it has been played 4 times by adults. It has received rave reviews and declared it could be the best bar game (whatever that is) ever and each of the adults has said they will buy it. I can’t personally speak to the game as I haven’t played it but have been told it’s easy to learn, exciting to play and satisfying. As far as whether the kids like it the jury is out...they haven’t had a chance yet. Apparently this has a huge thumbs up!More > < Less

Game arrived just in time for a Saturday night with friends at my bar

Quality of the game was as advertised and the game itself is lots of fun especially if those playing need to buy their chips to play. Only complaint was the horses not coming with numbers on them. It was nearly impossible for me to apply stickers.More > < Less

About Across The Board

Classic Fun

Across The Board games are handcrafted wooden tributes to classic games that are designed to get families together. And they are made to last for many years of game night fun.

All the games—from penny hockey to horse racing to a king-of-the-hill strategy game—are straightforward and easy to play. This is deliberate because, to maker Kim McDaniel and her late husband, Ryan, it’s all about gathering family and friends for screen-free time together.

Kim and Ryan were inspired by old-school games they found at Ryan’s mom’s house. They started out in 2008 making their own games for friends in their garage. Across The Board has since grown into a workshop, where Kim runs the show.

The McDaniels' new-but-nostalgic take on board games is one we appreciate. There are no bells and whistles, but instead you’ll find attractive, well-made wooden boards that are crafted with a keen attention to detail. And we bet you’ll also find lots of kids and grown-ups who want to play them again and again.
