Kids & Fun! Kids & Fun!
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?

It takes SO LONG to play! I loved to play Monopoly as a kid, though.

Quoting Angela4boys: My kids love monopoly (happens to be lower on my list of favorites ;). So that's the one they get addicted to.

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

Quoting Angela4boys: We do, and at least once a week. Sometimes they get on a streak where they play every day.

Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

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?

Quoting Angela4boys: We do! We like clue, life, monopoly, there is another one I always forget what the name of it is...kinda similar to where's Waldo, sorry...we like board games too.

And the way my kids play it takes even longer, lol. They issue personal loans, barter properties, etc. hahaha

They are 5, 3, and 21 months.  The 3-year-old is the emotional one with games.  My 5-year-old can at least be reasoned with, lol.  I think the squirrel game is somewhat new - I hadn't heard of it either before last year.

Quoting SarahSuzyQ: 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!
Quoting Heather2001:

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
