Bring Board Games Back

Remember when people played board games in the evening, instead of binging on Netflix or fiddling with their phones?  Sitting around a game board used to provide a chance for family socialization, and very inexpensive entertainment.

A recent article listed the 40 greatest family games, giving all of us a chance to at least try to create an interesting environment around the family dinner table one or two evenings a week.  The criteria were that each game should be fair (If you sit in the last seat, you will not be disadvantaged), action-packed, at least somewhat educational (teaching reasoning, math, ethics or teamwork), and encourage creativity and spontaneity.
