As some of you may already know, we homeschool at our house. With that, and my love of board games, there are plenty to play around our house. We have a few that are still in their packaging, but we're getting around to them with our new summer schedule. With the new schedule we are able to stay up a little later and enjoy more family game nights.
Just recently we played Blokus for the first time. It is a strategy game for up to four players, but I'm sure you could do teams if your family is larger. It resembles Tetris in a way because of the shapes, but I think it is a lot harder. We also recently enjoyed a game of Score Four . I don't have a photo of this one, but my father-in-law deems this " the best game ever". It's very challenging and great for kids and adults.
Did you know game night can be frugal? Make homemade pizzas and pop some fresh popcorn for an easy dinner. Music ads another fun element and makes the kids feel like they're having a party.
Have fun playing!
