Awkward or boring? Family game night…

Standard

Hmm. As you know, I’m a fan of Awkward Family Photos, but I wonder if this is any fun to play? What happens when you get tired of the photos—drag out your own family’s photo albums?

It couldn’t be any worse than the game I picked out for the family last month: Wits and Wagers. It looked good, had a “Mensa” award on it, had all these 4 star reviews on Amazon.com… and we’re very unimpressed. We tried it once, and nobody has wanted to play it again. We seriously thought about re-gifting it in one of the white elephant exchanges over Christmas, but I wanted to wait and give it one more chance, since we paid good money for it, dammit!

Tonight we played Life on the Kindle Fire by passing one of the Fires around. It was a fun alternative to the same old board game. It’s hard to find family games that will work for 11-year-olds, a 15-year-old, and two {somewhat cynical} adults.
