Games and puzzles are great – whether you want to go solo or want to play in a group with friends and family.
What better way to pass the time after a huge Thanksgiving or Christmas meal than to play a strategy game such as Dominion or Settlers of Catan?
There is nothing more exciting than pitting your brains and your strategic movements in a bid to outdo your fellow players.
Clubs and groups have formed from getting together once a week and spending a great evening playing boardgames that keep your brain exercised and help sharpen your intellect. It sure beats sitting in front of the television all evening.
And who can forget timeless classics such as Scrabble or the best selling Ticket to Ride Board game?
Getting your children used to playing together and taking part in games which help them with their vocabulary as well as to encourage them to love language, is a good thing!
For once, we can forget about all the electronic gadgets of our age and enjoy a good old fashioned board game that uses raw brain power and nothing but our hands, or maybe a sheet of paper and pencil for keeping score.
