  • 1.  Have you played the Trekking the National Parks board game?

    Posted 01-03-2024 04:58 PM

    My mom got this for our family for Christmas, and we played it for the first time a couple of days ago. We all had so much fun! My youngest is 8, and we are a family of five. Not only is it educational and beautifully designed, but there's so much strategy involved that it is sure to be different every time you play. 



    I just wanted to share because even though I'd love to see all the parks in person one day, this is a great way to "travel" to them while engaging in a little fun competition if your family is into the outdoors and gameplay. 

    Have you visited any parks lately, or do you have any good family game recommendations?

    Hey Sierra! Thank you for showing us this! I'll admit, I didn't become very outdoorsy until the last couple of years (I still won't go camping...too many bear encounters), but I love the idea of introducing kids to the outdoors through gaming! What a neat way to combine interests! This looks like an awesome game to play on a rainy day, and it may even help plan a vacation to a national park. I know we have a few around me I am looking at visiting. Thanks again for sharing!

    We love Trekking! Such a fun game with good strategy. 

    There's another edition, Trekking the World, that is great, too.
