Board Games, Anyone?

Started by Amy , author of The Finer Things in Life 12/7/2011 11:00:10 PM

My husband has a Wii.  We splurged and surprised him with it for his 40th birthday.  The kids only play the Wii when we play as a family, and I'm not gonna tell you they don't enjoy it.  They do! 

Just as fun, though?  Board games!  The flashing lights and high tech thrill of video games simply don't hold a candle to classic board games in our house.  Lance was just saying tonight, "The kids are almost old enough for Monopoly.  I can't wait!  It's gonna be crazy fun.  Pieces everywhere, crying kids, and Daddy's gonna win!"  Ahem.  Keep it on the field, Daddy. 

All goofy competitiveness aside, we truly do enjoy playing games together.  I remember when we were (finally!) pregnant with our first, lying in bed at night dreaming together about what the future holds, we'd list out all the classic games we couldn't wait to play with our kids.  (Typing that sentence totally just made me tear up!)

Our older two have graduated from Chutes N Ladders and Candy Land. The LEGO Minotaurus game shown below will be under our tree December 25th.  Combining LEGOs with a board game?  Genius!

We LOVE family game night at our casa. AND my son is totally into the new lego games. It is awesome to see children have so much fun with board games vs. tv games. We too have a WII, but only play it about once a month for a game day or something, but either me or my husband plays with the kids.

Its one if the few times my kids will sit and play all together nicely. It so great having everyone around the table enjoying each others company.

Board games help us bond because we are all interacting together instead of watching each other play the Wii, for example.

We absolutely love to play board games with our kids.

We really enjoy playing board games as a family and can have some lively discussions as we play. We are very competitive as a family and that just adds spice to the game.

We learn about practicing good sportsmanship while playing board games.
