A Portland man wants to help take your next outdoor party to the next level – with giant lawn games. 

Simon Yuen opened Recreation Department last year. He has a full-time job, but started handcrafting the wooden games a few years ago. The games were a big hit with his friends, so he decided to open a business. 

"First of all, I go out of my way to craft them very well and paint them to make them very visually appealing and it just visually attracts people to begin with," said Yuen. "Then as soon as they start playing it, everyone has a blast."

So far, he has made giant versions of games that probably look familiar, but he has renamed them due to trademarks. There is Frisbee Four, Cornhole, Giant Stacking Blocks and Ladder Ball.  

Yuen says he is already working on game number five.

You can rent the games for a 12 hour-long period and even choose to have them delivered and picked up. More information is available on the Recreation Department website.
