July 4th is almost here and that leaves me looking for some fun family entertainment. While we spend time outside, it's nice to have a few backup inside options as well in case of rain or bad weather. Patriotic board games are fun for the entire family and work for great July 4th entertainment or just for a little educational fun.

Patriotic Board Games
I've always been fascinated by our country's history and my husband and I enjoy historical movies and patriotic board games like these:
- Memoir '44 - A unique historical game from Days of Wonder where players face off in dozens of WWII battles using plastic army men on an large hex game board. Each battle duplicates the historical terrain, placement of troops and objectives of each army. Players deploy forces through a variety of command cards using the skills of his units - infantry, paratroopers, tanks, artillery, commandos and resistance fighters - to its greatest strength. Great strategic card game for ages 12 and up.
- Our America - Learn about the history, heroes and heritage of the USA as you play. Our America challenges how much you know about America's geography, history, culture, and much more. You can answer questions from various topics such as, authors, heroes, villains, history, movies, wars, monuments, artists, inventors and music. Intended for ages 8 and up.
- Timeline: American History -Timeline: America History is fun and educational. Players have hands of cards and take turns attempting to place the cards correctly into the growing timeline. This game will test your knowledge and help you learn the history of the nation. Great for ages 8 and up.
