Keeping board games in your house is a great idea for long winters when your kids can’t go outside to play. The only downside to doing this is that these games tend to look cluttered and are not very stylish when left out in the open. If you want a board game that’s easy for younger children to play, and it’s beautiful enough to have on display, I highly suggest purchasing this wooden tic-tac-toe set. The top wooden slat slides off so that you can leave the game pieces inside. This would look beautiful on a table next to a stack of your favorite coffee table books.
Obviously, TicTacToe is so easy that adults tend to get bored of it quickly. So this might only be amusing for your kids up until a certain age. However, even if someone is too old to play anymore, this is one of those decorative game sets that still looks beautiful and elegant even if no one is playing it regularly. This is similar to how many people like to keep a chess set in display (especially if they are fans of The Queen’s Gambit.) if you’re a household full of adults, you may want to search for a chess set with your $40 instead.
