My family LOVES to play games. One of the newest ones we've been hooked on is a dice game called Farkel. It's similar to Yahtzee, but way more fun.
I think games are a great way to bring family together. Some other's we like are: boggle, sequence, backgammon, othello, battleship, monopoly, phase 10, uno, cribbage, pictionary, mexican train (dominos), tri-ominos, upwords, gin rummy, blackjack, poker and sorry. We also have ping pong and air hocky downstairs. Not to mention a ton of yard games that we play (when it is nice out). We also play video games togther. We have Wii (Wii bowling is the best) and Playstation 2 (Guitar hero rules!!) and Playstation 3 and I think I have just about every old school video game ever made on my laptop.
So yeah, we are complete game junkies. It's a great way to spend some quality family time. I don't think there is a day that goes by that we don't play something together as a family. Give Farkel a try if you haven't, it's really fun and addicting (cheap too, I think it goes for around 10 bucks).
What games does your family play?
