Moving with Board Games

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Packing for a move can be very stressful and difficult. It's amazing just how much stuff we have. A small heap of stuff left seems to take forever to pack. One of our challenges with packing is our board games. Here is how we packed our board games as well as some tips to make sure those games stay intact.

I wanted to keep all of our games together, so I bought a big moving box to put them all in. It wasn't big enough, so I had to use two. I put the bigger games in the bottom and stacked the others like a pyramid with the smaller packages on top. Since we aren't moving far and we are moving ourselves, the packing was sufficient for our short trip to our new home 30 miles away.

If we were moving further or had a moving company help us out, I would have taken a few extra precautions with the games. One step would have been to seal all small playing pieces in ziploc bags. This would ensure that if something do go awry during the move that the games pieces would all be there and in an orderly fashion.

Another method for keeping board games together is tape. I'm not wild about this one since it will damage the packaging and some games have really nice packaging. I would suggest using string to keep the box together. You can also string several games together to make it easier to move them.

It's best to secure your games when packing them because you never know when a box might be dropped and then you are having to decipher which little plastic pieces to which game. It might be a hassle and add to your packing time but can be well worth it. Placing pieces in closeable bags will not only help during the move but after. Keeping game pieces in a container can help when kids get into games or when games fall off of shelves.

Packing is stressful enough. With just a few steps you can take the worry out of packing your board games. By securing your games you will ensure that they arrive safely and intact to your new home. After all the hustle of moving, what better way to relax than by playing your favorite board game.
