Game night?

We recently inherited some great board games from my in laws... Battleship, Up Words, and Pizza Party among them. We've also been teaching DS how to play Rummikub. Can you tell that we enjoy family game night from time to time? :-)

Does your family play board or card games together? What are some of your favorites?

We really need to get Life... My son loved playing it at my mom's house over Christmas, and I like it a lot too! Do you guys play board games together often?

We don't really have a "regular" game night either... We just pull them out when we're looking for something fun to do in the evenings. Do you guys ever play board games as a family, or is it not really your type of thing?

Quoting Barabell: We don't have one.

No, we don't really play them. I played them sometimes with my son when he was younger, but we have not played one in years.

We do, and at least once a week. Sometimes they get on a streak where they play every day.

My kids are young, so we play games like Candy Land, Sneaky Snacky Squirrel, and other kiddie games.  It's hard because they all want to win at this age and it's difficult constantly explaining that everyone doesn't win every time.  LOL

How old are your kiddos? I remember endless games of Candy Land with a lot of tears when someone else got a special pink card! My son is 6 now, so he doesn't get as upset, but he still likes to play every so often. He also liked Hi Ho Cherry-O at that preschool age. :) I've never heard of Sneaky Snacky Squirrel!

We get like that if we're really into a particular game... I think the last one my son played every day was dominoes.

My kids love monopoly (happens to be lower on my list of favorites ;). So that's the one they get addicted to.
