There are a couple of games that we heard about from our friend Steve Hobbins, pastor of Lewis Avenue Baptist Church in Temperance, Michigan, the church I grew up in. I'm not going to list each one of our favorites today--there will be more to come in later posts. :)
Ticket to Ride is a fantastic family game. The box says it is for ages 8+, but Brian began playing at age 7. I am ready to buy an expansion pack for it soon. We play this game so often when we have a free night. I wanted you to be able to see what the game looks like when you're all done playing! Every color of train cars represents a different person playing. I won't get into the technicalities of the game, you can read them for yourself elsewhere online. We give this one 5 *****! It even teaches a little bit of geography while you're playing because the destination tickets have you travel from one place to another. Very fun! A little pricey, but well worth the investment.
