Tips for Organizing Games


If your cabinet is bursting with board games, you might want to take some time to organize those games. When organizing games in a shallow cupboard, stack all the square games in one stack and the rectangular ones in another stack. Get rid of any games you no longer play.

When organizing board games in a deep cupboard, put the rectangular games length-wise, so that you can see the short edge of the games, instead of blocking the back games with the games in front of them.

Card games can be organized in a drawer, lined up so that you can see their edges to see what game it is. Larger card containers can be stacked at the back of the drawer, along with any card holders.


If you have games that are subject-related, you could store those games in separate bins to use during school time. Math games (like Monopoly, Yahtzee, Payday, Battleship, etc.) could all go in one bin. Language Arts or Reading games (like Scrabble, Boggle, etc.) could go into another bin. Art games (like Masterpiece, Mommy, It’s a Renoir, etc.) and puzzles of famous works of art could go in another bin. Geography games (like Take-Off, Risk, etc.) and puzzles of the U.S.A. or the world could go into another bin. You could stack the bins in your garage or slide them under a large bed, to take out whenever your children have earned some game time for school.

What are some of your favorite games? Do you recognize any of the games in our cupboard? Who remembers Mr. Mouth?
