Your kids aren’t the only ones who need to get outside and play. For an activity the whole family can enjoy, check out V:King, an old-fashioned game that you can play on the lawn, beach, park, or anywhere with a flat space. Inspired by an ancient Swedish pastime of “shields” and “axes,” V:King is a test of skill, strategy, and luck. Just be prepared for plenty of bluster and gloating—on the part of the children and the grownups.
