Bond With Your Family Over A Board Game

Playing a board game is one of the best ways to connect with your family. Often, families find that they are too busy with work or school to sit down and spend time with one another. When they do find the time, they typically struggle to disconnect from their cellphones, video games or television shows to focus on one another. A board game is a great way to encourage your family members of all ages to bond and have fun without staring at a screen.

While games are a great way to get your whole family off their phones and having fun, it can be difficult to choose the perfect game - there are just so many available! To make it easier for you to choose, we have compiled the best family board games that you are sure to love.

Play A Classic Board Game

When thinking of family games, the first thing that comes to many peoples' minds is classic board games such as Monopoly or The Game of Life. Setting up a tabletop game board, doling out the pieces and cards, and gathering around the table to play for hours on end. These are fond memories for parents, and ones that kids will cherish as they grow up.

Share these memories with your children with a classic board game like the Betty Boop Edition of Monopoly. If you enjoy Taboo, try the family-friendly version called Poetry for Neanderthals. Players earn points by getting others to guess the words and phrases, except they can only be single-syllable words. If they use words with more than one syllable, an opposing player gets to hit them with a 2-foot inflatable club. Both kids and parents will love this board game!

Pass The Time With Card Games
