With the holidays approaching and rain in the forecast every several days, it's a good time to think about playing board games with the family--at least it is here in our home. Of course, we have certain favorites we tend to play over and over again, so I was wondering what other games are on the market that we'd enjoy. There was some talk at my office last week about this game:
I was told this is a fun game to play in a larger group--perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas. So I went over to Amazon and ordered it. While I was there, I started looking at other board games for my immediate family--I haven't really paid much attention to the new games in the last year or two.
Generally, our family enjoys games that don't require a lot of concentration, so some of the most popular strategy games probably wouldn't work for us. We like games that are fairly simple to understand and can be played in under an hour. And we need a game that can be played by three to five people as our immediate family is small.
Do you know of any games--new on the market in the last couple years--that you'd recommend for us? Also, what's your favorite game when you get together with a large number of people? There are so many games on the market that it's quite confusing to browse online, so I'm hoping we can share some suggestions. Thanks for your input!
