Saturday Afternoon Family Gaming Time (2 Hours)
Feedback form is now closed.
Are there games you love to play with your kids? There are options other than Snakes and Ladders or Candy Land. Table top gaming is a family experience. Raising a young geek means sharing with them, but as most parents know, finding games that are fun to play together can be challenging. When looking for a family-friendly game, try shorter games that don’t require too much reading, and games that reinforce math and spacial skills. There are also games that can be played by all ages with some modifications to the rules. Be forewarned: your child still has a good chance of beating you at many of these games. Games will be available for you to try out with your family: Dinosaur Hunt, Blokus, Get Bit!, Tsuro, Quick Cups, Roll for it, Panda Head, Face Chase, Flipping Flags, Set Junior, Apples to Apples, Spot it. Have one you don't see here? Bring it to share.
