The idea of a “family game night” has gotten some traction in our house — the kids are getting old enough to keep game pieces out of their mouths and “waiting their turn” no longer incites screams or tantrums. We were at the bookstore at the mall the other day and there were a lot of games that looked pretty fun — but it was a bit overwhelming. Any suggestions for board-type games under these categories?
(1) family [includes children ages 5 and 7]
(2) party [games played with adults, but not requiring massive amounts of skill or concentration -- to be enjoyed during a social, etc.]
(3) children [specifically for children to play amongst themselves (ages 5 and 7)]
