Games, games, games!
I LOVE to play games.
We have a LOT of games!
We don't play games as much as I would like to.
For the longest time, my mom and dad got us a game every year for our anniversary.
Kevin is ridiculously good at word games.
The oldest game we have is a "Trivial Pursuit" which I got for my 13th birthday!
We keep our games in the hall closet here. They are squeezed in! There are over 75 games in there.
It's really too hard for me to pick a favorite.
Having said that....
Apples to Apples, Boxers or Briefs or Balderdash are a LOT of fun for a small crowd.
For just 2 people, I recommend Sorry, Trouble, Phase 10 or Battleship.
Monopoly or Scrabble are okay once in a while!
Our new daughter-in-law comes from a game-playing home as well. She's taught us quite a few fun card games.
I like to get my kids a deck of cards as a souvenir when I go somewhere. I also think they are a great stocking or Easter basket stuffer.
If you have a game closet it's a good idea to keep a plastic shoe box with pens, a tablet, a timer, extra dice and playing cards.
