How to organize games in an RV

First, I’m sure there are many ways to organize games in an RV. In this post, I’m just sharing what works best for us.

When we first moved into the RV, we had most of our games in this bucket, and the ones that didn’t fit were shoved up in a cabinet above our couch. It wasn’t very practical, but it worked for a while.

I was watching Instagram stories one day and saw a friend sharing a game organization system she used in their RV. I immediately knew it would be perfect for us!

We ordered one and were so impressed! We could fit over 20 games in it even though it is advertised only to hold six. As you can see, I was able to get rid of a ton of game boxes and save space!

The GeekOn Quad-Mod game organization and storage solution

This was perfect for holding square board games and various games like dominos and small card games. This game organizer holds everything except for our larger board games which we now keep in a closet in the bunk room.

It has 16 zippered pouches that hold small game pieces. We also use them for card games, misc items, and dominos. You put the square game boards in the middle when it’s folded in. Everything is well organized and easy to find, including the small items.

Where we store our games in our RV

As I mentioned earlier, we still have several other games that don’t fit in our organizer because the game boards are too big. We keep these in a cabinet in our back bunk room cabinet space along with our space-saving game organizer. It’s a great use of storage space, and it keeps our games easily accessible for quick grabs!

Also, easy-access storage bins can be great for full-time RVers with small space areas. There are many storage ideas and solutions for travel trailers, but hopefully, this gives you some ideas about storing your games.

Our Top 10 Favorite Games in Our RV

As I mentioned earlier, we especially love card games, but we also enjoy board games. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for RVers or for some new RV games to add to your collection, here are 10 of our favorites, in no particular order.

1 – Monopoly Bid

  • 2-5 players
  • Ages 7+
  • Card game

If you like the traditional Monopoly game but don’t like how long it takes, this game is the perfect solution. Collect sets of properties and money without spending hours wishing someone would just win already, haha!

2 – Hand and Foot

  • 2-unlimited players
  • Ages 13+
  • Card game

Growing up, I always played Hand and Foot with my family. After we got together, I taught Tucker how to play, and it’s been one of our favorites ever since.

If you play with only two or three people, you play individually. If you’re playing with four or more, you need teams of two. This is a really fun group card game! Find the rules and how to play here.

3 – Trekking the National Parks

  • 2-5 players
  • Ages 10+
  • Board game

We got this game last Christmas and have really enjoyed it! It’s one of the best board games for RV families. It involves strategy and is educational as well!

Learn fun facts about the US National Parks while you travel around the board game. It would be especially fun to play this one while camping at a national park campground!

4 – Catan Dice Game

  • 1-4 players
  • Ages 5+
  • Dice game

This Catan dice game is a fun spin on the original Catan board game. Try to roll the needed dice patterns to build as many settlements, roads, cities, and knights as you can before the end of the game!

5 – Dominos

  • 2-10 player
  • Ages 8+

There are a lot of different games you can play with Dominos, but Mexican Train is our favorite! We like this play this game with Tucker’s grandparents.

6 – Skip-Bo

  • 2-6 players
  • Ages 7+
  • Card game

We play Skip-bo all the time! This is a perfect game for two, although we’ve also played with larger groups. Skip-bo is our go-to card game after a long workday. It’s the perfect way to spend an evening; kids love it too!

  • Ages 7+
  • Card game

Work your way through 10 different phases of the game before anyone else! This may be the last game on our list, but it’s definitely not the least! This has always been one of our favorites, and we play it frequently.
