This or That: Board Games

I have taken this post idea and the "this or that"s from Michelle over at A Geek Girl's Guide. You should definitely go check out that blog. I love it.



Dice or Cards

I love a good quick dice game like Zombie Dice, but since Mr. LL and I only get to play once Lazy Baby goes to sleep, noisy dice got no place in my life. So cards it is. We've been enjoying Exploding Kittens as of late. (affiliate link)

Light Weight versus Heavy Weight

These days, light weights for the win. I don't have a lot of time to devote to board games, so quick and easy games are what you are going to find in rotation at the Lazy House.

Legacy or Not

I do enjoy a good, well designed legacy game, but I need more bang for my buck. So games with high replay value are going to get preference when I'm looking to buy a new game.


Kickstarter or Retail

Kickstarter, all the way. I love to support indie game designers and they come up with some the most beautiful and well constructed board games these days!


Versus or Co-Op

BOTH! Each has it's time and place and I wouldn't want to live without either genre on my shelves.

What would your answers be? Let me know with a comment below.

Memorial Day Outdoor Games for Family + Friends

This post contains affiliate links.

Bring the fun to your backyard this Memorial Day weekend with yard games for all ages. While you’re grilling up hotdogs and hamburgers, friends and family will be striking up friendly competition – and an appetite. 

Here are a few of our favorite backyard games. 

Wild Gate Sports Stars and Stripes Cornhole Tailgate Toss

You can’t beat a classic! Not only is cornhole a universally appealing game, it’s also easy to teach new or young players – less time teaching, more time playing. Plus, this set features a stars and stripes design that is perfect for your Memorial Day cookout and other events all summer long. Pull it out again later in the summer for the Fourth of July!

Baden Champions Series Croquet Sets

A croquet set is a summertime staple for backyards large and small. Designed for 2-6 players, we especially like how this set features hardwood mallets with soft rubber grips for comfort. It even comes with a complete croquet rulebook, perfect for new players or rusty ones. 

Classic Ladderball Game 

If you’re looking for a new backyard challenge, this ladderball game fits the bill. Friends and family will appreciate the easy learning curve to this game, but the extra skill involved to getting the golf tosses around the ladders. 

Lazy Mix: Volume Three — TBT Edition


These songs are from my youth and I still love them. Thought I'd share them with you all and embarrass myself in the process. GOD I'M OLD. Honestly, I had to stop myself from making this a 5+ hour playlist. There will definitely be another TBT edition in the future.
