Generous wives everywhere shared their favorite games in the Oh No! Larry the Creeper! Favorite Games Contest. I thought it might be fun to create a list of all the games mentioned. Games that were mentioned multiple times are in bold print.
Many of these games would make a great gift for family and/or friends. A small card game would make a nice stocking stuffer. You are giving a gift plus hours of fun with family and friends.
