My boy loves board games. I was going to list his favorites, but it would take too long. We just got Sorry, the classic version. At first glance I doubted that my seven year old and especially my four year old could handle the potential slowness and disappointment of Sorry. It has been great fun! The slowness is balanced out by the excitement of moving Daddy’s player back to the start. The disappointment when Daddy gets back at you and sends you to start seems to be OK.
My favorite is the conversations I can slip in with my son while we play. He doesn’t reveal much when the focus of the activity is the conversation. But when distracted by a game all sorts of juicy stuff comes out.
What games do you recommend? What do you like to play with your kids? What should be wrapped and under our tree in a couple weeks?
