Welcome and thank you for visiting Austin Yard Games! We are Justin & Dustin Klinkerman (our parents had an affinity for names that rhyme, our younger sister is named Kirstin). We thought we should share our love for lighthearted competition and passion for designing and building cool stuff with the rest of the world, and thus Austin Yard Games was born.
Our story starts many years ago with Lego and K’NEX. For years every Christmas and birthday list always included one or both of these toys on it. But we are also only 2 years apart in age and so competition was just as much a part of our lives as multiple giant plastic tubs of Lego were.
Once we got into high school we began upgrading our choice in toys to lumber, metal, and power tools! We lived on 35 acres at the time, and so we built practical things like chicken coops and small barn structures for goats. But we really enjoyed building the less practical things like coyote traps (non-violent) and our personal favorite, a 6ft tall trebuchet that we used to launch bowling balls.
We both have event industry experience and saw the chance to merge two of the things we love into a business that can bring joy to everyone. If you want to learn more check out our About Us page.

We offer a variety of services that range from tournaments, weddings, team building, and even custom game designs and branding.
Our cornhole tournaments are fully staffed so you can focus on the games while we keep everything going. We even offer trophies for the winning team. This is a great way to add some competition to your gathering without the hassle of game management. Visit our Tournaments page to take your games to the next level!
No wedding is complete without games and entertainment. At Austin Yard Games we take the time to maintain our equipment and pay special attention to games being used on your special day. We offer custom monograms and have an assortment of wedding-themed colors and designs. To find out more you can visit our Wedding Page. And if you don’t see exactly what you want to match your theme you can contact us about customizing the games to fit your needs.
We understand the benefits of having an effective team and one of the best ways to accomplish that is to have members work together directly to solve complicated problems. We have games that will bring your team closer and challenge them all while having a great time. Contact us to find out more.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you look, you just can’t find the perfect thing that fits your needs, that’s why we work with our customers who need that extra touch of perfection to design and build the game they need. We can do anything from custom branding or adding a little flare to fully designing and building your game from the ground up. On our “Custom Builds/Branding” page you can explore some of the options that we offer.
