Just a reminder that board games are great. Video games are fine, but there is usually less talking going on. Board games (or other table top games) take a bit of time and usually move slowly enough that you can have conversation and laughter.
Patty in Date Night at Home recommended a new game - Qwirkle. It's not strictly a board game, but it looks fun (and would probably work well with kids too). My son and I play Scrabble and, as a family, we like Settlers of Catan.
I know it sounds a bit tame, but it's amazing the memories you can make. Set up the game, fix up a few munchies and invite your family to play (if you want an evening with your sweetie, play after the kids' bedtime or swap babysitting with a friend for a free evening).
What are your favorite games? Please feel free to leave them as a comment so that we all can benefit. I'm always looking for good games, especially ones that are good for two.
