A rainy day can quickly ruin an RV camping trip if you let it. After all, the inability to head outside and experience all the great outdoors has to offer can really put a damper on things.Because we have spent a good portion of our summer in Florida where summer storms happen nearly every day, I know firsthand what it feels like to be stuck inside while RVing. Fortunately, I also know that these days don’t have to be a total bummer. In fact, with the right attitude and just a bit of preparation, a rainy day in an RV can quickly become a fun family bonding experience.
One of my favorite things to do when we are stuck in our RV due to poor weather conditions is break out the games. However, because we live in such a small space, we don't have a ton of room for game storage. For this reason, we have had to find games that are both compact and tons of fun.
Here are 3 of our favorite games that are easy to store and a blast to play.
This is, hands down, my favorite game of all time. It is a fast-paced card game that tests your pattern-recognition skills. One round of this game can be played in only a few minutes, making it perfect for filling small amounts of time, but it is also fun enough to play for an hour or more.

If you’ve never played a game of Pick-Up Sticks, you are in for a treat. This silly game requires players to have a steady hands and an excellent eye for opportunity. It is the ideal game for small spaces, and is good for a wide range of ages. Pick-Up Sticks is stored in a small tube that can be easily hidden away in a drawer or cabinet.
