Does game night sometimes feel like a group exercise class at the Y? Ever seem like every board game is just “Twister” packaged in a different box? Queue the pharmaceutical-sounding DIY-infomercial…
If you or someone you live with suffers with “SAS” (Short Arm Syndrome), SNUDDA can help. Don’t let short arms take the fun out of family game night for you or your loved ones. Let SNUDDA extend you a helping hand. **Side effects may include an increase in cheating, poor sportsmanship, embezzlement of Monopoly money, and other negative consequences related to participation in family game night up to and including death of a close-family member secondary to bludgeoning with a cardboard game board. Results may vary per family.**
OK kids, or short Mommies and Daddies, this Ikea hack is for all of us…

On one of our Ikea trips, we spotted this $10 lazy susan. At Ikea this product is not called a lazy susan, of course. Instead, crafty Norwegian Ikea has dubbed it with a nearly unpronounceable name, as per usual. At Ikea, this standard issue lazy susan is called the “SNUDDA”. And it will set you back about 10 bucks.
Side note: I have a hypothesis that Ikea workers must have more laughs at their customer’s expense than workers in nearly any other retail establishment. Can you IMAGINE how many times a day a customer asks them for something while COMPLETELY botching the name of the item? I mean, it has to happen CONSTANTLY!
Anyways, you can make this DIY rotating game board from an Ikea lazy susan in less than one-minute with only 2 supplies:

As you can see in the video, there is really nothing to do except grab your game board and clip it onto the Ikea lazy susan. And quick as a slide takes you from first place to last in Chutes & Ladders…you’re off to the races. Or off to Boardwalk and Park Place or those pesky railroads that I never seem to own but always land on.
Caveat: If your game board is a lot larger than the Snudda, then you may be able to offset the board and only clip one side, and/or use a rubber jar opener underneath the board to help it stay affixed to the lazy susan turntable.
No more reaching fatigue at the game table. Little limbs rejoice!! Instead, be relaxed and lazy while enjoying family game night. Twister is a great game and all, but I definitely don’t want to play that one all the time 😉 🎲
