I’m so sorry; that title sounds terrible.
I like my kids. And I like playing with them. But when it comes to playing board games together as a family, there are some that are just brutal.
Our kids ask every once in a while, “can we have family game night?!” and I want so much to say yes. Really I do.
So I’m always on the lookout to find games that we all enjoy. Here are five of our family’s favorites:
