My kids have really been getting into board games lately. We spent a whole day playing monopoly last week. I picked the game up at an op shop for $5. For such a small outlay, it provided us with entertainment all day! We took breaks for morning and afternoon tea, as well as lunch, which I think helped in making the game last as long as it did. We had such a blast! Even though dad won, the kids are keen for our next board game day.

  • wow a whole day! I used to love board games, glad they are still around


  • I love Monopoly too. And “The game of life”. Yesterday I bought a game that apparently has been on the market for a very long time but I didn’t know yet. It’s called “Aggravation”. Very entertaining. There were sales so I bought it for $5 instead of $15.

    • I forgot the picture

      • Haven’t seen or heard about this one before.

      • i hadn’t heard of this board game before lol. thanks for posting this pic


  • My kids really like junior Scrabble.

    • Scrabble is a great game and everyone loves it and most importantly it is fun and gets the brain working!


  • Monopoly is a wonderful game and it can last days and days! It is a great game for developing lots of life skills too.
