I am no stranger to board games. I LOVE board games, always have even as a child. Even as an adult I’m not one for parties or just hanging out. I would much rather play a great game, pool, darts, or anything that is fun. I’ve passed this same love onto my children. My husband is not a HUGE board game kinda guy but he will join in when we convince him it will be fun.
My favorite games are games that all of us can play, age range 6-to we won’t reveal the oldest it wouldn’t be fair to him. I love the games that ask questions and make us laugh. I’ve always felt that board games are a great way to have fun with the entire family. It brings out the goofiness in us all which isn’t really hard to do.
I remember when I was young I would beg to play board games. My mother would relent and play with us on occasion. When my stepfather played I was so excited because he didn’t play as often. I remember the one game he enjoyed playing with us was Clue. So I would ask often if everyone wanted to play Clue so he would play with us.
Our biggest problem is finding new games to play that we all enjoy. We have all the classics and play them often but sometimes it is fun to play something new. I’ve purchased games that didn’t live up to the excitement on the box and then some that are right on target. Honestly I didn’t know LEGO had their own games. I have always been a LEGO fan too!
We have this LEGO game at home and the kids knew about it before it arrived. I am so out of the loop with new toys and games sometimes because I rarely watch TV. They were excited to get into the game and I found them all three playing together. I couldn’t tell you a thing about it but I know they enjoyed it.
I’m so glad I passed on my love of games to my children. I hope that they will play with their own children when they have the chance. Often we spend so much time trying to get through each day we forget to stop and enjoy what we have. Board games are a perfect time to unplug and enjoy the whole family!
