Family Game Night

January 25th, 2006 at 06:17 pm

Tonight we instituted something new - Family Game Night.

This will be every Wednesday night (we chose Wednesday, I guiltily admit, because it's a slow TV night).

Tonight we broke out our new Monopoly (bought on sale) and played. We decided to play until bedtime for the kids and then not count winners or losers. It was a lot of fun, teaching the kids how to play (btw - we played with one of the alternative rules listed in one of the threads on the discussion group - the money in Free Parking) and watching them add the spots on the dice and count to move. I showed off by telling them where to move just by looking (well, it's 10 on a side, with a railroad in the middle, it isn't that hard).

They enjoyed it so much, I'll bet we end up playing it next week. I've decided that we will definitely recommend board games as presents for family members.

    We usually have family game night on Fridays in front of the fireplace and love it! I think your kids are older than mine, but one of the games we love is Clue. It's such a great time just hanging out with the kids...I wish we could do it more!

    We love games at our house too. Both my husband and I grew up in houses where games were often played, and we love passing on this tradition to our girls. This past Christmas, we received as gifts two new favorites - Apples to Apples and the Family Fun edition of Cranium. An easy way to have a lot of fun!

    We love games too, I don't know how old yours are, but I am having fun finding new games that my little ones can play.

    Apples to Apples is an awesome game BTW Smile.
