This backyard game is a great bonding activity for the whole family.

Being born in the early 90s, I spent most of my childhood interacting with people. Back then, we played outdoors. Afternoons were for playing outside the house with my neighbors. During weekends, we played board games at home with my cousins. We particularly enjoyed playing four-in-a-row.
