    We have probably a dozen or so.  I like to have game nights with the family and sometimes we even have a game night for friends and such to gather as well.  I find board games allow for more "face time" and personal engagement and conversations than simply playing a video game with the kids etc.  I like that it provides bonding time and a fun experience.

    We have a few games as we have fun together playing Rumicub or other games - have a laugh etc while playing - makes you think rather than just mindlessly watch tv all the time & brings you closer together as a family.

    My parents and siblings have hundreds.  We played board games a lot all through my childhood and every time we get together.  My 5 siblings and I buy more every time we are all together at the home where we grew up; my mother still lives there.  We are a wacky bunch and our laughter when together is unlike any other.  Board games are an amazing way to bond and make many wonderful memories.

    Too many! But I think they are great, especially when there are children around as they can learn so much in a fun way. I even have my Mother's Chinese Checkers and my Grandmother's Pilgrim's Progress. One of my daughters does not play any with her children as she thinks they're a waste of time, but the others do. I think an evening spent playing games in a family is a precious time of togetherness and there should be more of it.
