We used to play board games a lot in our house. Unfortunately, due to Sam and Rachel's either losing interest or not agreeing on what game to play, and, frankly, laziness on dh and my part, we haven't been playing a lot lately. Last year, the kids were really into Clue for a few weeks, and over the summer we played cards (gin) quite a bit.
I always like to get new games for Chanukah, because game-playing is more traditional to the holiday than general gift-giving. I was at a loss this year, since we have most common, popular games (gathering dust ;-). I stumbled upon a holiday game store. I bought 2 inexpensive card games. One is called "Blurt" and we've been having so much fun with it! Well worth the $3.95 I spent on it. Each player in turn, reads a definition from the card. The first of the other players to blurt out the right word, wins the card. First player with 10 cards wins. Dh and I handicapped ourselves by not blurting the word until the definition was finished being read. There are about 6 levels on each card, so we'll "use up" the game eventually.
Do you play board or card games in your house? What's the hot favorite right now?
