with our kids
, who love games. The big problem, of course, is that most board games are made of cardboard.
A few years ago while hanging out in St. Augustine we came across a cool toy story that sold
called "pirateer." We bought a copy and it became a huge family
hit. Only problem was the cardboard. A flyer on the inside said there was a version that shipped in a can (deluxe version). So I contacted the company (who at the time was the guy who invented and produced the game) and ordered a few. They're great, the "board" is printed on felt, the pieces are plastic or metal and everything tucks into a nice looking, long metal can.
I've since found the game
at some local stores, both in the can and in the box. You can buy it on their website too, at www.pirateer.com
Any other game suggestions?
