When was the last time that you sat down with friends to play board games? What games did you play? Card games like Cards Against Humanity or UNO? How about board games like Candy Land or Monopoly? How about good ole fashioned Twister? Which made everyone get a little too close. More than likely you have played some type of board game with your friends.
It’s amazing that many board games have stayed popular throughout the years. Board games are an inexpensive form of entertainment, for families, that can last through generations. They also many board games can be considered educational in some form or fashion. whether it be by teaching a kid to count or learn how to add up points. If you play a game like Twister, you will learn about colors and how to keep your balance.
My earliest experience with board games is playing with my family after we ate dinner. We would always play either UNO, Mouse Trap, or Monopoly. When my brother and I went over to our grandmother’s house, she would play Candy Land with us. When we would get tired of that game we would play Scrabble (I was terrible at it), and my brother would always win. As we got older, we continued playing board games. Sometimes with our friends and other times with family. We started a tradition by playing Mexican Trains every Christmas. We would Lose track of time and would play into the Early hours of the next morning.
Everyone enjoys playing board games. New games come and go, but there will always be those select few games that you will always love to play. Hopefully, we can start playing more board games to enjoy being around friends and family.
