    I made a whole bagful of "homade" game. Tic-Tac-Toe, Tripoly (Michigan rummy, hearts and poker can be played with this board-I stuffed the lines around the sections to make wells), Jinx (a board game using dice and pawns). I used bingo chips with a variety of stickers. Backgammon is another game that could be made. I found that I tried to used an already existing game and tried to mimic the same shapes or aleast have the same number of coresponding pieces. I use a pencil bag to hold all the piece and dice. I even used small party favors for Tic-Tac-Toe pieces

    This is what I made my grandson years ago because we liked to play games together. Hope you can find one. it is by quiltsmart (Quiltsmart.com). It only took a couple weeks to make the whole thing and he really loved it. Dee....I took pieces from dollar store games and made a matching bag for them with his name on it.

    Use plastic soda bottle caps inside the YoYo for stability.

I've seen the Sudoku quilt's, I thought about making a grid board and keep the 9 sets of 9 blocks separate so you could have a different game each time. Any ideas?

    Mancala could work, yo-yos or yarn balls there too. Love your idea by the way!

    I just made a Monopoly quilt top. The fabrics and pattern were from Quilted Treasures, I believe. i will post it soon. Before that, I made a QBert quilt, which is an old video game. There are pics of it on the older section of the Pictures. My son, who is 29, collects board games, and most of the quilts I've made him are from video games. I think they are coming out with Scrabble fabric, too, so I think that will be the next one.

    I made a quilt for my father in law's cabin....it was made of 2 1/2" squares then had black fabric strips through out. It was a maze with the black strips, only one went from one side to the other. Then the other game on the quilt was there were only 2 squares that were the same fabric, so you had to find the matching fabrics.

    I have started a checkerboard and will make the game pieces by cutting out round circles (2 1/2") and fusing to double sided fusible material. I have made a Sudoku quilt a couple of years ago using African fabrics. I want to make a larger one with actual Sudoku theme fabric I purchased for the backing and random numbered squares. Patterns were available for Bacgammon and Parcheesi a few years ago for purchase. There may be others as well. Also, I have seen patterns for a crossword puzzle and puzzle pieces.

    Has anyone made the Fons and Porter Bingo game? It was printed in one of their magazines about 5 years ago.

    I also made a sudoku quilt - several in fact...

    I found a "Nemo" fabric with (happily) nine different characters and I cheated by taking the answers from the back of the sudoku puzzle book I happened to be working on at the time! Easier than making my own puzzle!

    I have a pattern for a backgammon board. I also have a book with chalkboard quilts. That has a checkerboard pattern in it and some other cool ideas too

    I just made two bean bag toss quilt tops. Found the pattern in the "projects" section of the The Quilt Show website. Basically, it is 16 - 10.5" squares w/ sashing and cornerstones and borders (approx 60x60). Make one "line" (no cheating) and the beans bags to match each square from 5.25" squares. Will post when I get one done (hopefully, REAL soon).

    Hi! I saw a checker board quilt in one of my books. Hope to make it for my grandsons! They used wildlife fabric, but would think that you could find something for little girls too ... cats, dogs, fairies, etc.
