Family Fridays: Never Bored with Board Games

UncategorizedJared KennedyComment

Have everyone choose a favorite board game, and take turns playing them all.  For some variety, allow the person who chose the game to make once rule change in how that game is played, and make it a fun alteration.  For example, in Scrabble, give everyone a five or ten-point bonus score for each word they play that includes a letter in their name.  Or in Monopoly, charge everyone a fifty-dollar fee, payable to the bank, each time they complete a turn without saying either "please" or "thank you."
