What tradition holds as much cachet and history as Mom and dad, sisters and brothers gathered around the table for family game night? Whether it’s taking a stroll down a candy covered path, laying down letter tiles, or even fighting for dominance over the continent of Australia. Gaming together as a family builds strong memories, teaches your kids the importance of family and of strategic thinking, and most importantly to never get involved in a land war in Asia.
I have fond memories of gaming together with my parents; playing Risk, Rummy, Backgammon, Othello, and any number of other games. It was a cherished memory of mine, those weekly game nights, and one I’m doing my best to pass on to my kids. These family board games are a great way to get your kids involved in gaming without feeling the need to play endless rounds of Uno, or Monopoly, or Scrabble. So grab one of these games, grab the kid(s), and get playing!
