I know most households have video type games like the WII and X-Box but when was the last time you gathered your family around for a good old fashioned board game night?
Is your family a game playing bunch? Or are they a bunch of party-poopers?
In our family we are somewhat divided when it comes to playing games. There are a couple of people (which shall remain unnamed) who REFUSE to play games when we all get together, some who will play but without much enthusiasm and then there are some who will play anytime, anyplace. I am in the category of the 'anytime, anyplace' group.
I remember when The Game Of Life first came out. I was probably about eight years old and my parents, sister, brother and I nearly wore this game out playing it. It must be a good one to stand the test of time for more than forty years. (OOPS! I just let you know that I am really OLD.)
This is always a fun one to play with lots of people, everyone can play without too much trouble.
If you like to play charades then you will probably like this one.
THE GAME OF THINGS is my all time favorite game. I blogged about this before here.
Be sure and bring your imagination when you play it though.
I really enjoy playing drawing type games but have found that not many people are fond of these types of games because of the pressure to draw in front of others.
Other games we enjoy include:
Golf (card game)
HOW 'BOUT YOU? WHAT GAMES DO YOUR FAMILY ENJOY PLAYING?
I AM ALWAYS OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS.
