The holiday season is the perfect time to catch up with aunts and uncles, grandparents and cousins, and all of those in-laws you don’t see very often. You’ll probably spend the better part of dinner catching up on what everyone has been up to. But after the small talk dies down, you may find yourself fumbling for entertainment.
Fight the urge to zone out in front of the TV and pull out one of these board games instead. Each one is sure to help you create new family memories and get your competitive juices flowing. At the end of the visit, when Grandma has built her empire and left the entire family depleted of resources, or Little Timmy has shown his solid grasp of capitalism, you may have a new understanding of these people you call family. And that’s one more thing you’ll all have to talk about at the next get-together.
