Family Game Time is Needed Now Days

According to an article in the Washington Post, kids ages 8-12 are spending nearly six hours per day on media such as online video, music, and social media. For those 13-18, that number goes to nearly NINE hours or more than one-third of their day. As a result, often times, family communication, especially between parents and their children, is almost non-existent.

For generations in America, the dinner table was a meeting place for families to unwind and to talk about what was going on. For my family, the table was not only for meals but also for game nights were always a time of fun laughter and most importantly communication.

A Few Additional Family Favs

Tile Lock Scrabble

This classic game has always been a family favorite. Not only is it a new challenge with each game but also encourages vocabulary growth and can help with memory improvement. One of the greatest things with this version is there are no bumps of the board that shuffle the tiles. With the tile lock feature, they stay in place far better than previous versions!

Yahtzee Classic

Nothing makes her more happy than when all five dice match up to give her the coveted Yahtzee! With Yahtzee Classic it looks just like the original with five dice, score pads and of course the aluminum rimmed cup that helps make that all familiar sound as the dice hit the bottom of the cup!

  1. I love playing games because it connects you with the players and great memories can be made while playing together. Everyone is involved (no social media) and besides playing, you talk to each other. LOVE playing games with family & friends!

  2. This is so true that sitting down together as a family can be fun and is a good way to share an activity.

  3. We have game night a couple of times a month. Love getting together with friends and family and enjoying ourselves

  4. I like the time we spend playing because we can connect without electronics and laugh about nothing in particular.

  5. Game night gives us time to sit down as a family and focus on each other. We laugh, have snacks and just enjoy the moments

  6. I love the laughter. When we have game night with friends, there’s just so much laughter. Time flies. It’s such a great stress release.

  7. Playing games brings family and friends together with having a screen in front of your face (well board games do anyway) and that’s the best part. Good old fashioned quality time.
