Adventures in Cardboard: Game Day

Game Day games are similar to live-action versions of strategic board games, think Risk or Stratego, but played on one’s feet with the park area as the playing board.

The action in a Game Day ranges from sportingly competitive to creatively improvisational. Whether kids like to dive into (mock) battle or wander about the realm looking for hidden, magic treasure, they will find something they love! Read more about Adventures in Cardboard: Game Day
