Do you like games? I sure do! I’ll share some of my favorites, and then I would love to hear your input.
When we were young, my brother (who is three years old than me) and I played board games all the time. Our top choices were Pay Day, Frustration (the British version of Trouble), and Monopoly/Canada-opoly.
As we grew older, our family started playing strategy games together, such as Blokus, Sequence, Bananagrams, Rummikub, and Yahtzee.
When I started college and met my husband, he and his friends introduced me to card games. Until then, I had only ever played Go Fish, Spoons, and Slapjack, so it took a bit of time to get the hang of these more advanced card games, but now I really enjoy them. Presidents is a great game for large gatherings, and Kemps, Golf, Euchre, and Dutch Blitz are also lots of fun.
If we’re looking for a group game that is more interactive, we usually choose Taboo, Fishbowl, Pictionary, Mad Gab, or Pit. If we have a few hours to spare, we might venture into a round of Settlers or Empire Builder.
What are your favorite board games and card games? Have you played any of the ones that I mentioned?
