They're even more rad at a no dancing reception. Take advantage of a good season and some outdoor space for badminton, ring toss, corn hole, and giant versions of your favorite nostalgic games like Jenga and 4-to-Score. Plus, it'll get your indoor gaming friends out into familiar territory. Let's get to the games!
