I used to play Snakes & Ladders ,Monopoly , Scrabble as well as Card games like Double Rummy with my 3 daughters , My ex didn't like games !
My new husband & I love playing Dominoes, Rumicub etc !
During holidays, Its necessary for any one to spend some time with their children, and even they can participate in some board games with me. We usually play Carom board game along with the family members. But, we just play it for fun, not for any surprise gifts.
My family often plays board games together during the holidays. It's a good way to get everyone doing the same activity that doesn't involve a television or food. Personally I enjoy word games like boggle or scrabble, but we seem to have the most fun with the guessing games like taboo or cranium. Basically any game where you can shout out ridiculous answers will be a big hit with my family.
I've raised nine children and have always made it part of the family tradition to play games with the kids especially during the holidays. After all, our collection of games constantly grew during those years and a "new" game was generaly expected as a Christmas present. What's the sense of buying a game if you don't play it? Part of the 'giving' was also giving of my time...which far outweighed the game itself.
Its kind of funny to watch now...my grown children still follow that tradition with their own kids...Its great to hear when I walk into their home, "Grandpa, will you play a game with us?"

We offer a tranquil space to reflect on the damage created by problem gambling.
It provides a safe space for honest self-examination.

As a child growing up in Tennessee, the holiday season was the best time of the year. Mom would pull out the old card table and we could gather around to play board games. Sometimes, it would get pretty intense as everyone wanted to win. Monopoly would go on for hours whereas the Game of Life would...
