Great Games for Two People

There are some great games for 2 people, which is wonderful, because I love games. I really do. and sometimes (thankfully) I'm not surrounded by a crowd. But. there are so many great games to play when it's just two. me and you. We can talk and p...

a great game of world domination!

Ticket to Ride

Looking for a great Game? Last Christmas our family received the game Ticket to Ride. and we LOVE IT! It did not take long for us to learn how to play the award- winning Ticket to Ride. the nine year old and the teens were all able to pick it up fairly quickly.

Farkle- Our Favorite Portable Dice Game

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they play Farkle. See, Farkle is a game of chance. and everyone approaches it differently. It's simple, you roll six dice, and every time you come up with a one or a five, you set those dice aside for points... there is strategy, chance.... and it fits in a purse, so it's portable.




Classic game of making money

Rummikub, A Great Family Game

Our family is Rummikub crazy! My mother introduced us to the game, and now we all play. (We get the youngest going as early as 7. ) And no one is allowed to know how old the oldest players are.
It's sort of based on the concept of Gin Rummy, but there are twists and turns... and tiles instead of cards.

We are game players in our family, and in order to get the little kids up to speed on taking turns, following rules and playing games, we start them off with these Board Games for Younger Kids. Some of the games work on memory, some match shapes, others ar...
