Holiday Countdown #9: Great Board Games

By December 21, 2010

Follow me on:

Last Night on Earth game (Photo by J Burrell) The holidays are such a joyful time - but they're really stressful too. So make sure you take time out to have some fun with your kids. Go caroling. Take a walk through the neighborhood to enjoy the holiday lights. Or settle in with cups of cocoa and a great board game and recapture the joy of being playful and young. The frantic shopping, wrapping and cooking can wait till tomorrow.

This list of great board games for the dorm will give your family plenty of laughs, from the hilariously wacky Quelf to the creepy but very fun Last Night on Earth. And all I can say about the latter is, if zombies really do invade, don't put me in charge of the humans. I'm terrible at avoiding zombies.
