Your big chance at games.

Chances are if you are out in the garden and the weather is on your side then the only thing you want to do is put your feet up and catch some rays.

But if you are slightly more energetic or the kids are digging up the garden then you might need something to occupy a little time.

Until recently you would have needed a large bank balance or to have owned a pub to get your hands on these garden games but they are now all under pounds 100 so you've no excuses now not to turn your garden into your own private theme park:

Tangle - pounds 34.99

Get yourself in a twist with this hilarious garden game complete with its own oversized inflatable dice.

Players line up beside the two-metre square playing mat, and by following the instructions given after each throw must try and remain standing.

Snakes and Ladders - pounds 39.99

This is certain to be a hit with kids of all ages.

Instead of using a counter to move around the board as with the original you become the play piece on the huge three metre playing mat.

Move up and down the board as you land on the obstacles - it could almost qualify as exercise.

Four-in-a-row - pounds 39.99

A fast and fun game for all to enjoy outdoors - you simply drop the counters into the oversized frame and it's the first to get four-in-a-row to win.

When you are done just undo the base and all the pieces come tumbling out ready to play again. Just keep dropping them in for your chance to win.

Draughts - pounds 39.99

This game is even fun to construct because you need to interlock all of the squares together before you get started.

Then it's fun all the way - assuming you win - as you try to move all your pieces to the other side of the playing mat to win.

Giant garden tower - pounds 79.99

You could get the table version - but the bigger the pieces the harder they fall.

Use your skill and nerves to move blocks higher up the unstable tower.

Giant chess - pounds 44.99

A fabulous game to play on a hot summer day - just pour yourself and your opponent a drink and take your seats.

And if you really don't want to stand up for your turn get yourself a rake out of the shed to help you along.
