Fun Games to Play

Monday, July 25, 2011

When it's a rainy day it's always nice to have some fun indoor games to play. Some of the ones I like to play with family and friends include:
  1. Blokus: A tetris like board game that involves strategy and defensive skills. 2-4 players
  2. Monopoly: This real estate game can be fun or not so fun depending on how competitive you are feeling.
  3. Uno: Uno can be a short game or a couple of hours long depending on if you include different variations. This game is great for a big group.
  4. Ticket to Ride: Build trains and try to complete strategy cards before your components. This is a fun strategy game.
  5. Scrabble: Scrabble involves building words in a crossword type fashion. It helps to develop those critical thinking skills.
  6. Rummikiub: It's like Rummy with tiles. I used to play this game with my grandmother on late summer evenings.
  7. Classic Card Games: There's also classic card games that are always fun to play like Go Fish, Scum, Kanasta, Rummy.
Board/card games can enhance thinking skills or keep them sharp, help improve your memory, help with social development. Learn more here.
