One of the things I remember about my childhood is family games night. We would all gather around the Monopoly board and play for hours buying up properties and forging alliances in order to defeat other players.
With such fond memories, it is something that I’ve been keen to carry on with my own children and each week we get together to play different games. Bingo is our go to favourite games, although the classics of Connect 4 and Guess Who both feature too. One of our latest additions to our games night is the Hasbro Simon Swipe game which is both addictive and frustrating at the same time.
